You don’t demand ETA’s on shit you aren’t paying for. You don’t get angry when something doesn’t work quite right on an Alpha or Beta build of something you didn’t pay for. You don’t start shooting off at the mouth about how you are going to move to someone else’s free software if this developer doesn’t fix the software you didn’t pay for.
I was naturally in agreement with the spirit of what he said. And I think that he and these developers miss a number of simple facts: Read the rest of this entry »
Tomorrow from 17:00 to 20:00 I’ll be at an event called meetSue. It’s a networking event for different walks of life, I just received a preview of the guest list and I’m impressed. Aside from people I know there are a wide variety of people from all walks of life: coaches; directors; lawyers; graphical designers; art dealers; artists; trainers; clothing designers and retailers; and healthcare, merchandising, public relations, marketing and sales professionals.
Besides from the guests there are some exceptional entrepreneurs whose task is to inspire, tell their story, share their knowledge and expertise, and answer questions.
There is still time to register so you to can join the fun in the baggage hal of Loods 6 on KNSM Island in Amsterdam. Come for a drink, a snack and expect an inspiring evening.
Guests are kindly requested to donate for the continuation of meetSue.
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.
