Watch What We Do, Not What We Say

There was much more to Watergate, the two Washington Post journalists who investigated Watergate conclude, after listening to the Richard Nixon tapes. Ironically the lesson to be learned comes from a former Nixon Administration Member, who went to jail: ‘Watch What We Do, Not What We Say!’ What can we learn from that for today?

UK Government Officially Abandons Small Business

Vince Cable today in a speech told small business to stop complaining about the banks and go find much needed growth capital somewhere else. At least we now know where we all stand. It is alright, that these politicians use our tax money to bail the banks out and help them to pay themselves bigger…

Speed Is Of The Essence

Mr Cameron is rightly demanding from the Euro-Zone leaders that something needs to be done about the Euro crisis. It seems obvious to everyone, that Greece, Spain and maybe other countries will have to leave the Euro-Zone. Why prolong the agony? While the Euro-Zone leaders agonize over the right solution, Mr. Cameron himself has made…

Like. Hate. Leave. – The Facebook Lifecycle?

Many years ago someone said to me, ‘It is good to be greedy, but not good to be too greedy!’ I think we live in a time when this little proverb is more true than ever, in my lifetime. ACT 1: Like Facebook is free to use, many got involved in a delirium of the…

Farewell Steve

Yesterday evening, Steve Jobs died. A man like no other, who has changed and touched many of us with his products and his vision. When I wrote my post “We need more Jobs, …. more Steve Jobs“, the other day, I was wondering how long he would be still with us. He had been battling…

Facebook the new AOL?

In an excellent article about “What Facebook Really Wants“, Nicholas Thompson of The New Yorker Magazine, writes about how Facebook is trying to create a sub-internet, an all encompassing online world for its users.
