First Real Snow of 2009

Many of you may remember my blog entry last year about the surprise of snow falling one morning. That came on March 5th but this year I woke up to snow much earlier: this morning!

I spent Saturday in Basel at Startup Camp, a get-together for Switzerland’s entrepreneurs. The Poken team showed up en masse and we really had a great time. What’s more, fully 2/3 of the attendees bought Pokens and used them to connect with people, exchange contact details, etc. While we’ve known for a while that Poken can be very useful at a conference, this meeting was particularly suited for it because so many of the members use new social media such as twitter, blogging, social networks, etc. So the standard details included on a business card (name, email, phone, address) were less relevant than all of the new media identity information included on the Poken digital card. Cool! We were glad to facilitate people connecting.

This blog began as a way to document my experience during the IMD MBA in Switzerland and now is the place where I publish eclectic thoughts on climatetech, business, politics, fitness, entertainment, travel, wine, sports, and . . . whatever else is top of mind.
