New egosurfing tool: preople

I’ve been egosurfing since the early days (not sure if I actually invented the word). It means that you regularly check your online presence. Google was the best and only tool to do that. I was very excited to find out that when you spell my name wrong at Google, you’re asked if you didn’t mean ‘Krijn Schuurman’🙂 Anyway, a new service has launched by Boris Veldhuijzen Van Zanten and his compagnion: Preople. This is Lees meer…

Windows devices with BlackBerry services

High Tech Computer (HTC), one of the world’s largest makers of handheld devices based on Microsoft’s Windows Mobile software, has signed a deal to offer support for BlackBerry wireless services on devices that it manufactures. Under the agreement with Research In Motion (RIM), HTC plans to start adding Blackberry Connect to some devices, allowing mobile operators to offer Windows Mobile-based devices that can access e-mail and other services offered by RIM’s popular BlackBerry service. BlackBerry Lees meer…

Viral effect getting in motion

It’s great to see that some of the mechanisms we describe in our blog manual actually take place with the blog manual and the blog seminar being the subject! Not only some digital media have mentioned the blognomics event, some bloggers have picked it up now too. One of them is Neville Hobson at Nevon.net who actually writes about three blogging events next month, two in Paris and one in Amsterdam, the latter of course Lees meer…

Shifting audio and video

What do an iPod and hard disk recorder have in common? A lot! The concept of local storage creates the opportunity to direct your own media consumption behaviour. This may sound a little fuzzy. What is means is that to store media – audio and video – at a near place, enables you to watch or listen to it whenever you want. This avoids requiring a huge video server and enormous bandwidth. But when you Lees meer…

On air

When I was young I always wanted to be a radio host or a quiz master. I never managed to get there (yet), but at least I’ve been on national radio: BNR Nieuwsradio. In todays program called In de Ban de Week I was interviewd by former Nova en RTL News host Margriet Vroomans and Rens de Jong. It was about the 36% increase in e-commerce revenue in The Netherlands. They asked me to explain Lees meer…

Podcast experiment

I’ve been carrying around my new iPod Photo for not even a week now, but my enthousiasm is still at heights. One of the reasons I got the device was to get into podcasting. I’ve just been working on my setup and if everything goes as planned, this post will include a podcast. I’ll explain how I did this later, first I have to check if it works at all 🙂 By the way, I’ve Lees meer…

We can’t make it any more fun…

…but we do make it easier. Well, that’s more or less the slogan of the Dutch tax service. What do you think of this? I received a letter that I’d been late with sending in my Q4 turnover. Since it’s the first time, they won’t give me a fine yet, but the next time this happens, the fine will be higher because of this incident. See the dates that I should have sent in (upper), Lees meer…

3, 2, 1… Blogven launch!

It’s definite now. Systems are running, products are ready. Blogven, “Blog Viral Enterprises”, is online: www.blogven.com. Our first two products are: – a blog seminar, info at www.blognomics.nl (Dutch), and – a blog manual: Blognomics 2.0, The Economics & Mechanics of Blogging Both products can be found at the Blognomics Shop. Planet Multimedia has already published an article about the event.(Dutch)

Yet another step

Today we made some big improvements in the Blogven developments. The site is ready and we’ve finished our first product. Hopefully I can announce it tomorrow. Also, I proudly present my new iPod Photo. An important tool in the world of podcasting. The photo feature is a bonus. I will be carrying around some pictures of her I guess 😉 By the way, the price of an iPod has dropped dramatically in the last two Lees meer…

Snow in spring

It will be hard to explain to my daughter that is actually spring now, according to the meteorologists. Luckily, she’s only eight months yet. By the way, I’ve been taught that spring comes the 1st of March, so let’s keep it at that.

Image is everything

Another step for Blogven. Today we had a photo shoot at this new skate track in Amsterdam. With lots of material for promotion, things are getting real. More pictures of the photo shoot can be found at Flickr.

Blogven’s birth

Well, not the actual birth yet. The conception perhaps. Actually Guido has been walking around with the Blogven idea for a while, and then gathered a team. First Alex and Adriaan from Cellspace joined, and now I’m getting in. This may sound a little misterious, but that’s on purpose. The only thing that can be shown right now are the Blogven promo shirts:

Over

Once again a fresh start for krijnschuurman.com. Actually it’s not a new start; i’m just shifting gear! PHPnuke is a very nice and useful CMS, (especially with communities like JOS4.nl), but I’ve decided to pick up blogging again, so I decided to switch to a blogging CMS. And why not pick the best around? So now this site is running on MovableType. Installation takes some figuring out, but once you’re done, you have something nice Lees meer…

Ego portal

Een ego portal is een website over jezelf. Althans, dat versta ik eronder, de term heb ik van Frank Meeuwsen. Dingen over jezelf kan je natuurlijk ook kwijt op je blog, maar dan schuift het naar beneden, komt het in een archief, en is het niet meer goed zichtbaar. Op deze pagina zet ik nog wat dingen over mezelf op een rijtje. Ik ben zelfstandig ICT consultant en doe een behoorlijk deel van mijn opdrachten Lees meer…
