If TechCrunch Says so…

Woke up this morning and wasn't sure whether being selected for LeWeb, Europe's largest tech conference, was something I dreamt about. But if TechCrunch says so, it must be true! As I write, we're planning out the next 28 days to make sure we deliver a brilliant presentation in our 7 minutes and we'll appreciate …

Chosen for LeWeb 2008!

We're company #6 on this list! That's right! We've been chosen as a finalist for the upcoming LeWeb start-up competition. Personally, I'm still in shock.

Entrepreneurship is one of those topics that polarizes people: some evangelize and others vilify it. Whichever side of the fence you're …

I just got back from a VRM event in London: Unlocking the See-Saw. It was a serious pleasure to meet so many people dedicated to building a more ethical consumer-enterprise relationship. The panels and the conversations (and the wine!) were highly stimulating. For the uninitiated, VRM stands for "Vendor Relationship Management" which, in a nutshell, …

Coming up: The Global Travel Bubble [Part 1]

In trying to figure out how to bail-out the financial institutions and avoid a global economic meltdown, finger-pointing and blame-laying has been a standard dish these last few weeks. However, blame is seldom one-sided. Governments may have allowed it to happen and banks may have been greedy and irresponsible, but consumers have been foolish too. …
