by adrianhall on 23 November 2012

A hearty congratulations to the team at Apréndelo for winning the “Best Micro Business” prize (look forward to getting rid of the word “micro”) from the Spanish entrepreneurship magazine “Emprendedores”. Here’s the presentation page http://www.emprendedores.es/promociones/premio_epson_a_la_mejor_microempresa/aprendelo_internet (in Spanish), and here’s the photo of me (with Movember moustache) picking up the award. http://www.emprendedores.es/empresa/noticias/viii_premios_emprendedores

Trying out Zemanta

by adrianhall on 10 May 2011

Today, one of our team forwarded me a link to Zemanta. Had not heard of it before.

This looks exactly like the sort of thing a lazy blogger like myself. I can drag in content like images and related links that are suggested in my editor window.

CrawlWall

November 18, 2008

A great session at PubCon Las Vegas 2008 (of many) was Competitive Intelligence : Know Thy Competitor Well with Jake Baillie, Andy Beal, Larry Mersman, William Atchison. Bill Atchison’s approach to competitor snooping and scraping seemed smart, so I jotted down the product brand stamped on his Powerpoint slides, CrawlWall, and this morning I popped [...]

Sarah Palin and Hilary Clinton

September 4, 2008

There’s some talk that Sarah Palin was chosen as McCain’s running mate, because of her potential to capture the disenfranchised Hilary vote. That seemed to me unlikely. Hilary’s voters may be from the more conservative of Democrats, but have no comparison to Palin’s rabid right. Then it occurred to me that both would be good [...]

Google Chrome – Yes, it’s good but…

September 4, 2008

I’ve downloaded and tested it, and I like it. It won’t get me off Firefox yet because I’m so hooked on my plug-ins, and actually the thing I least like about Chrome is that I wish Mozilla had built it. When Google was born, it was a white page with a search box, and little [...]

Traumatic first day

September 1, 2008

Today was the day Leo, 10 months’ old, paid his first visit to the nursery. Here in Spain, statutory maternity leave only lasts four months. After that it’s unpaid. I won’t get into how dreadful a policy I believe that to be. My wife and I decided that, with Leo, we could afford for mummy [...]

The “Blog and Tweet” strategy

August 27, 2008

After years as a social media doubting Thomas, I’m starting to get the fun of them. I’ve had a delicious account (http://delicious.com/elguiri) and a LinkedIn account (http://www.linkedin.com/in/AKHall) for a while, but I’ve done little with them. Aren’t these things for kiddies? Recently I’ve become a convert to one of the most infantile – twitter (http://twitter.com/elguiri) [...]

Sidebar Widgets

10 Reasons Why It’s Better to be Mechanic than a Lawyer

April 27, 2007

We’ve all heard the one about difference between a dead rat and a dead lawyer in the middle of the highway. No? There are skid marks in front of the rat. There’s little doubt that mechanics beat lawyers hands down in the popularity stakes. On the other hand, there are few mechanics that earn more [...]

New scooter

How times change. I used to be a fan of nasty Japanese sportsbikes. The day before yesterday I took delivery of a new Yamaha X-Max 250. It’s sweet, and my gym stuff and a helmet fit under the seat. Perfect for buzzing around Madrid. Here’s an X-Max photo. (Mine’s yellow.)

No grand slam for Ireland again

February 13, 2007

The 2007 Six Nations has had me – again – hoping for the unlikey – an Irish Grand Slam. Surely, the team that had back to back victories over Australia and South Africa could handle France. Well, no they couldn’t. The one thing the Irish are world champions at is tragedy. They look like they’re [...]
