What are some of the ways businesses can move into new markets?

Jul 11

When considering new markets, one has to keep in mind whether the market in question is a new local market or a geographic expansion for the business. Both types of new market pose its own set of challenges and opportunities. New local markets are tricky because they tend to involve new business models – moving from product centric to service centric for example – while geographic...

On the realpolitik of office coffee.

Coffee. In this time, the most precious substance in the universe is the coffee Nespresso. The coffee extends life. The coffee expands consciousness. A product of Java, the black bean juice, stains the lips of the developers but allows them to be human computer programmers, as thinking in machine language has almost become the law. The coffee is vital to internet travel. The IS department and...

I touched Steve Wozniak today.

I might never wash my hand again. Yea, ok, not really but it was freaking awesome. To the max. I prefer Steve Wozniak over Steve Jobs. For one, Woz isn’t a complete asshole. For another, he’s a Geek Guru, a Nerd God. The man designed, built and programmed an electronic computer (like, the first one) with his bare hands and got stinking rich from it. And then spread the love around...

Right, since you’ve obviously read my previous post on being awesome with gVim, taken it all to heart and have installed gVim you’re now chomping at the bit to be even more awesome (unless you’re Scott, who clearly already possesses all the awesome a single human body can hold as far as Vim goes…).

Right, so you’ve heard about Vim. Those who use Vim refuse to use anything else. And, to be perfectly honest, anything else decidedly lacks awesome. Awesome people use Vim. Even on Windows.
