Facebook and Google join dataportability.org

Hehe — did­n’t expect them react­ing that fast to my call for an openID for Social Net­works.… but dataportability.org today announced that Google and Face­book joined their ranks. Google will be rep­re­sent­ed by Brad Fitz­patrick, the inven­tor of Live­Jour­nal and one of the pri­ma­ry minds behind OpenID. Face­book will be rep­re­sent­ed by Ben­jamin Ling, who today runs the Face­book plat­form. Mar­shall has more… Unfor­tu­nate­ly we in the EU do have some

Italian-style Starbucks

One very offline busi­ness idea came into my mind: You all know Star­bucks. Star­bucks entered a over­crowd­ed mar­ket (you got your cof­fee near­ly every­where) with a com­mod­i­ty prod­uct (cof­fee). The result: they are extreme­ly suc­cess­ful and are run­ning 13.000+ stores world­wide. In Europe, espe­cial­ly in Ger­many, Ital­ian food is ubiq­ui­tous — here in Munich we have hun­dreds of lit­tle pizza restau­rants and Ital­ian cof­fee bars. I think it’s time for an Italian-style Star­bucks: restaurants-cum-takeaways

The Danger of Blogging

Advertising provokes Premium Users

In Decem­ber 2007 Xing, a Ger­man social net­work, announced to show dis­play adver­tis­ing to add anoth­er rev­enue stream to their pre­mi­um user fees. With the begin­ning of Jan­u­ary 2008 the ads have been dis­played. For all users, free accounts as well as pre­mi­um accounts. Many (2500?) pre­mi­um users seem to be in a rage and have begun to express their anger in forums and blogs, as well as in Xing groups. So

If you print this, I will kill you!

Israeli entre­pre­neur Yossi Vardi is one of the few real­ly cool VC peo­ple in this world. Best known for hav­ing sold ICQ to AOL dur­ing those times every­body had a lot of cash, and not known for his social projects where he is donat­ing money and time. Threat­en­ing the Econ­o­mist’s jour­nal­ist with death should be taken with a pinch of salt — but he make a very good point: those guys who do

Invisible Children of Uganda

Difficult customers trigger service quality

Return­ing from a relax­ing wellness-weekend in Aus­tria I am still won­der­ing about the com­plaints of the hotel owner (aged about 40) this morn­ing dur­ing break­fast: “In ear­li­er days our guests were a lot more easy going. No com­plaints about din­ners, the kind of music played at cer­e­mo­ni­al occa­sions, etc. Nowa­days most of them dis­like this and that, want to change the menues and do not return for hol­i­days if they object­ed to the
