What if you could record your life?

In the dark ages, I studied educational sciences and agogics, the science of social interaction. How people learn, how group dynamics influence behavior and how individuals interact with their environment has intrigued me ever since. I was baffled to hear Deb Roy speak @ #LeWeb11. When his little baby boy was born, Roy and his …

Karl Lagerfeld: I like the past. I like the future even better…

You just know he is different. Put Karl Lagerfeld on the central stage of a global web event as #LeWeb11, and he fits in as nicely as a yellow rubber duck in a bowl of strawberries. Lagerfeld is different. Even a seasoned host as Loic Lemeur, organizer of LeWeb does not really know how to …

Eyeborg: an enhanced human, kind of…

Kurzweil’s singularity. Intriguing stuff. It made Peter Hinssen almost nauseous at the last #TEDxBrussels conference. Too much Singularity is bad for you, everybody knows that. It’s a bit scary, talking about this almost magic moment in the not-so-distant future where man and machine will finally merge, kind of… While most speakers could comfortably maintain an …

Star Wars and ACDC – I’m that old!

Trusting Privacy settings is Bungee jumping without a rope…

You trust those bungee ropes blindly, don’t you? Think again… they might very likely hang you. An Indian summer drink this weekend resulted in heated discussions on e-identity, e-brand, and the very precious social capital. To my huge astonishment, a lot of people keep on posting shady, risky or downright provocative pictures and updates on …

Dear @CNN: Where is Cannes? Where??

Our first cities appeared thousands of years ago. We have been bashing each other’s skulls in for eons, before settling comfortably within our borders. France for instance, …

Have you shared too much?

Hilarious video on how Social Media platforms can all of the sudden become a little bit awkward in a business conversation. Superbly acted, it makes you think… yes, that could be YOU in that chair… are you prepared for it? *evil grin*  

60 seconds of Social Media Sharing

The peeps from http://gopopcorn.ca made a great infographic on what the army of smartphone equipped people around you are up to. Every. Sixty. Seconds. One minute of media sharing generates more content than you can handle. Yes, you!

So long Steve, long live the king

It’s sad to see how everyone, from markets, over journalists and influencers to White-Van-Man is overreacting when something terrible happens to one of the leaders of star corporations. Steve Jobs passed away, and people all over the planet make his testament, and -in one breath- the one of his beloved Apple Inc. I’m sad that …

Rounding up cows now easier than ordering Starbucks !
