The Day Google Crashed.

Posted · Add Comment

Google crashed on me today. Or at least Gmail did. This is not good. I rely on Google to take care of my stuff, and reliability is their killer app. No more backups, worries or hassles. It just works. So when it crashes, it’s bad. Not so much because of the actual harm done, but […]

The New Forsman & Bodenfors Site Review

Posted · 33 Comments

A little over a year ago I wrote about the Forsman&Bodenfors site that never seemed to air. And now, finally, it has. The lesson that I talked about back then was that polishing and polishing on your product, and not getting it out there is fatal in times of rapid change. I also quoted Guy […]

The Bar Brawl of The Swedish Twittersphere

Posted · 7 Comments

It all started when the fashion brand Acne started following Fredrik Wass of Bisonblog fame on Twitter. Fredrik felt spammed and wrote a heated post on his blog. Jesper Åström responded at his Online PR-blog. In essence he made very good points i think, but his angle was all crooked. Instead of heading into a […]

The Twitter Pitch Revisited

Posted · Add Comment

I wrote yesterday about the Twitter Pitch. In the US, where Twitter has a firmer grip, this is already happening. Check out for example this post from about six months ago. And of course, this doesn’t just apply to the “elevator pitch situation”, but to press releases, job applications or anything else where noise is […]

Seesmic’s Got Me Hooked. I Think.

Posted · Add Comment

So, Seesmic has my attention. What du you think of this Twitter-ish video service. Either it’s an amazing way to build relationships or it’s TOO intimate and will meet the same fate as video-calls on 3G-phones. (At least here in Sweden, video-calls are just dead). But so far I’m intrigued. This seems really cool to […]

Being Efficient in an Economic Downturn

Posted · Add Comment

Rock n’ roll is dead, order and neatness is here. The economic downturn puts us all in a different spot. And what does it mean for our business? Well, reason would suggest two things – first, people will need to change their priorities. New business will be a tougher job, and there will be less […]

Bubble Mania, Design For The Conversation Age

Posted · Add Comment

One of my favorite blogs, Mashable, had a special feature the other day about the use of cartoon bubbles in web design. And it’s absolutely no joke – they are everywhere. It’s ridiculous really once you realize exactly how generic this design element really is. I guess it’s about denoting conversation. Or is it a […]

The Invisible Internet

Posted · 1 Comment

Perhaps one day we’ll laugh at the fact that we once had something called a “web browser”. Maybe it will sound just as stupid as having a generic “electricity browser” where you can choose from “light”, “hair dryer”, and “vacuum cleaner”. I don’t know. Let me elaborate: What do you use the web for? Personally […]

Agencies: Forget Web 3.0. At least for now.

Posted · Add Comment

I went for a walk yesterday in the spring sun of Södermalm with Carl Waldecrantz from Superstrikers. We discussed Web 3.0 and the dangers of that concept. Everyone wants to claim it. I’ve heard it several times now. F&B for one mentioned it for their new site which has been “coming soon” now for longer […]

Hörni’ flashtöntar! Skärp er!

Posted · Add Comment

Att ha en flashig flashsajt är hopplöst töntigt, att ha en umärkt blogg som till exempel Åkestam Holst känns betygligt trevligare. Men känns inte det lite last season också då kanske? Här är några alternativ: Alternativ 1, Whitespacing:Eller White Labeling, som är den korrekta termen, kanske kan vara något för just dig?Vore det inte tufft […]
