Sunday, February 20 from 17:00 to 20:00 meetSue has organized a networking event and you’re invited! This time in a new and exciting venue: the baggage hal of Loods 6 on KNSM island. Obviously, easy to reach by car and public transport.
The program of this third meetSue networking event: as little as possible! We have created a networking evening which stimulates in our own unconventional way. But obviously with a few special features. There is live music and we have some exceptional entrepreneurs present to inspire the guests of meetSue. They are there to tell their story, share their knowledge and expertise, and answer questions. Topics can be anything including social media, marketing, business in general and much much more. The meetSue way, not with a microphone in hand and a Powerpoint presentation. How? meetSue and be amazed!
As we want to keep meetSue open for everybody, we don’t ask for entrance fee. We do ask our guests to contribute € 7.50. Come for welcome drink, snacks and expect an inspiring evening. Looking forward to February 20th!

The Hackers and Founders Meet Up, started by James Bryan Graves (@jbryangraves), is inspired by the meet ups which started in the US and have moved to the rest of the world. Although I could only spend a short time there I was able to speak with a number of the new members who came to the meet up’s location.
It’s clear that under the Hackers and Founders who came that mobile tech is still as important as the traditional web platforms, although I did hear of a number of interesting mobile apps which are being created. I hope to come to the next meet up and have more time to spend talking to the participants.
Part 1 of Mobile Monday can be found here.
Initially Ben van der Burg‘s presentation using
DiskSlideJockey failed, so Ville Versterinen presented ShadowCities, which I discuss here. Ben’s discussion centered on the disappearance of Story Telling, and the creation of Emotelling and the pornofication of the story. Lastly Ben Scott-Robinson of We Love Mobile proposed the exact opposite and discussed how important story and narrative are to getting your message accross.
A post modern irony story would be to go to the Mobile Monday Meetup in the Duif – an Amsterdam church and have the church using the technologies that are spoken about in the Meetup used by the church to reach their followers. Sadly this is not the case, although the church is forward thinking it’s not that forward thinking.
The subject of the Meetup is Mobile Stories, and the first session was very nice. Luc van Donkersgoed spoke about the development of FML – Fuck My Life. Lucas Tieleman spoke about his way to create digital scarcity, which looks a lot like Geo Caching. Sander Veenhof spoke about his project in Cameroon nbeep. And Yuri van Geest spoke about NeuroSky/Xwave.

I’ve been voting in “Who Will Be TIME’s 2010 Person of the Year?” The way it’s set up I need to remember that I gave certain people certain points; Mark Zuckerberg 78; Hamid Karzai – 15; Julian Assange – 90; Glenn Beck – 77; etc. Wouldn’t it be better to rate them in order?
It’s quite simple really: drag and drop the names and/or images or names of the candidates in the order of the ranking and based on that TIME can actually rank all the people correctly. When you believe Karzai is more influential than Jobs, put him first; less influential than Assange put him after. It’s really not much harder than that.
Please enter this century TIME, it’s not so scary here.
