  1. By Martin Lindeskog from EGO,cross-posted by MetaBlog Have you seen the "banned images" of Muhammad? For more information, read the following: Duke Professor Finishes Yale's Job, Prints Mohammed Images in New Book; FIRE Co-signs Statement of Principle by Adam Kissel. Muhammad: The "Banned" Images: by Eugene Volokh. In 2008, under the glare of the controversy over the Danish cartoons, one of Flemming Rose’s few appearances on an American campus was sponsored by Dr. Gary Hull, director of the Program on Values and Ethics in the Marketplace at Duke University. Dr Hull has for five years taught and supervised the Power of Ideas, one of Duke’s most popular honors programs. In late 2001, he made national news when he posted an article calling for a strong military response to the 9/11 attacks. Duke pulled his website, but reinstated it after the action gained wide publicity.

  5. By Martin Lindeskog from EGO,cross-posted by MetaBlog Four years ago I debated with myself if I should vote in the European Parliament election. That time I ended up voting for the new Euro-skeptic party called the "June List." This time I am thinking of voting for the new "anti-Lisbon Treaty" party called Libertas. Do you want to be scared, read the post, Your last chance to stop it, and then watch the video clip.

My own advice on what to drink is something sweet, light, easy to swallow, has more fruit than character and most of all has a good looking bottle - just like many of the candidates!

  7. By Martin Lindeskog from EGO,cross-posted by MetaBlog I am glad to see that they will arrange a tea party in my old home state, Ohio.

  10. By Martin Lindeskog from EGO,cross-posted by MetaBlog Stay tuned for the start of a new series of podcast interviews on Solid Vox. I will interview Scott Holleran on Friday, February 27, at 2 PM Pacific Time (Los Angeles) / 11 PM Central European Time (Gothenburg, Sweden) / 9 AM Melbourne time, Saturday. Please feel free to send me questions for Scott Holleran and suggestions for future guests. Cross-posted from Metablog
  11. By Martin Lindeskog from EGO,cross-posted by MetaBlog My first post in 2009 will include several things, e.g., reflections on 2008 and plans for this year, my future blogging schedule and other social media activities. We had to restructure our company and close down the physical meeting place in Gothenburg due to the economical situation. We will continue with the business idea and during these two years we have established plenty of good relationships for the future. We are looking into the possibility to set up a virtual community online so we could keep in touch with our old customers and business contacts and create a new type of network. I have been exposed to a potential big business opportunity in the field of renewable energy. More about this later on... I have received the opportunity to write pieces for Open Forum. My latest one has the title, Will Social Media Tools Be Monetized In 2009? I look forward to your comments and feedback. Reading material: The Meaning Of Friendship by Michael Arrington of TechCrunch. Virtual Water Cooler by Barbarella. I have about 350 followers at Twitter at the moment. I probably follow 400 individuals in the near future. I have started to use Facebook again and I have more than 200 friends there. I will start to use FriendFeed on a regular basis. You could find my feed on the Facebook wall. I am thinking of creating a special room at FriendFeed in connection to my future podcast interviews at Solid Vox. The following individuals will soon be scheduled for an interview: Jonathan Hoenig. John Cox. Scott Holleran. In order to get my work-life more in balance, I have to get back on track with my studies of Getting Things Done and the practical implementation of the system. The GTD-IQ quiz told me that I belong to The Crazymaker/ Visionary quadrant. [Via Lifehacker.] Check out Robert Scoble's interview with David Allen.

  12. By Martin Lindeskog from EGO,cross-posted by MetaBlog At the moment, I am a little overwhelmed by the the flow of information and it feels like the will kick in soon... I would like to see that this post shall continue as a thread in the blogosphere and elsewhere, for example as microblogging tweets and messages at FriendFeeds accounts. I will begin to use Twitter and FriendFeed regularly during this year. But at the moment it feels a bit chaotic. I had a similar feeling when I first started to use ICQ and other instant message programmes and when I visited IRC (InterRelayChat) channels. How much time should you spend on it? What will it give you? How to use filters, in order to reduce the noise level? My basic position is clear and I believe that these tools can be used for both social and business. It appears to be a natural flow back and forth between the social and the commercial. Could this be the work-life mix that it talks about in GTD (Getting Things Done) circles? I see that these tools will enable the exchange of tangible and spiritual things between individuals. Perhaps we can draw parallels to ancient Greece and Aristotle's school, Lyceum, where there was a continuous flow of lectures, discussions and conversations of various kinds. Reading material: Power Twitter: Inline Media, Integrated Search And A Lot More by Michael Arrington. The Last Temptation of Twitter by Ben McConnell. About My Twitter Hiatus by Jeremiah Owyang. Things that I will do in the near future: Clean out some stuff at the "boxes" section on my Facebook profile. I am sorry to say, but I can't keep up with all the games, applications, etc. [Editor's note: That said, I am interested in getting in touch with someone who is creating third-party applications for Facebook and other social networking sites. It is for an idea I have chewed for a long time.] I like the new layout of Facebook with tabs. I think I will add a section for notes and a RSS feed. Please feel free to join my EGO blog network on Facebook. Thanks in advance for showing that you are a loyal reader of EGO! I will try to aggregate as much of my stuff as possible into one place. I think that Scrapplet will be the right tool for this task. Stay tuned for my new start & homepage in the near future... As a end note, I want to quote John Jantsch, author of Duct Tape Marketing: "Social media is a tool, it's not a religion." Cross-posted from Metablog
  13. By Martin Lindeskog from EGO,cross-posted by MetaBlog How did you commemorate the 235th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party? [Editor's note: I had a cup of tea and sent a mental thank-you note to the Sons of Liberty.] Here is an excerpt from kempite's post, 235 years later and all that the tea party was about is forgotten: Our freedom and individuality has been the key to our greatness but unlike the people of colonial America, today, Americans are giving up their freedom and relinquishing their individuality to a controlling authority that they want to give greater control to. Instead of demanding "no taxation without representation" we are accepting of the practice. (NJ Voices Public Blog, December 16, 2008.) Next time I am visiting Boston, I will go to the Old South Meeting House. I have been to the Boston Tea Party Ship & Museum before. I will also go to the statue of Samuel Adams and then have a beer with his namesake.

  14. By Martin Lindeskog from EGO,cross-posted by MetaBlog I am still trying to figure how to use Twitter in an optimal way. Feel free to follow me on Twitter. At this moment, I have a Twitter grade of 87 (#41,527 overall rank, out of 563,695). Read Using Twitter... 'The Smart Way' by Mark Ramskill. [Editor's note to self: Check out SubHub's online publishing platform later on.] Check out the video, Twitter in Plain English, by Lee LeFever. " id="VideoPlayback" width="320" height="260"> " /> You could follow an interesting comment thread to Anita Campbell's post, You Should be Looking for Small Businesses on Twitter. I have added Randa Clay's Twitter graphic to my section with the latest five "tweets" (Twitter Updates). In the news: Twitter: Secret Business Model On Track For Q1 - Silicon Alley Insider. I think that the following quote from Evan Williams's post, What Blogger Should Do, is right on target and I hope to see this feature mentioned at Blogger Buzz blog sometime in the future... Become the Aggregator: One possible answer to the question to what role does the stand-alone blog live in the age of a million-and-one generalized and specialized participatory web experiences is as a personal aggregator that reflects back the other stuff one does on the web. Yes, I'll load all that stuff into FriendFeed, but that's not my "online presence" as we used to say back in the day. Everybody (or at least a lot of people) needs an URL -- and one without a ? in it. I want my tweets, and my photos, and my whatevers to show up on evhead.com (hosted by Blogger) in an attractive way.
