Obama : How to seduce America using sales techniques ?

How to seduce people so they vote for you : address their concerns.

Obama addresses several key concerns of 2008 :
“I do want three things,” “I want to end
the war. I want to get everybody a health care system that is sensible
and common sense and saves money. And the energy policy. But, if I had
to just choose one thing, that would be it.”

And I believe indeed Americans are concerned by those
  • war
  • health
  • energy
If you add that he wants to decrease taxes for the middle class, I believe you have enough broad subjects that can gather many votes.

So to be successful, just address your client's pain points. A well known sales technique applied at a large scale.

Good job, Mr Obama...

Comment peux-t'on être ambitieux si on compend que à l'échelle de l'Univers, l'Humanité est insignifiante ?

Comment peux-t'on penser que le bien ou le mal que l'on fait a du sens ?

Comment peux-t'on penser que notre travail mérite autant d'importance ?

Pourquoi doit on conserver notre planete alors qu'elle disparaitra avec le soleil dans quelques milliards d'années ?

Pourquoi écrire ces lignes qui sont destinées à disparaître de toutes facons.

L'énergie de cet Univers doit vraiment avoir envie d'exister...

Internet Radio

Lately I have hesitated to buy a new kind of device : an Internet Radio. It connects on your WiFi router and plays thousands of radios streams that you can catch on the web.

Today I just plug my portable PC into my HiFi system using a mini-jack, but I find the quality is not so good. Therefore I have been looking for better options. Here are some products I find interesting :

I have visited several shops (Padeg, TDH... ) in Brussels, LLN and Overijse to try to see those products in real but they have not yet arrived in the shops. So for now, the only option seems to be to buy online. We probably need to wait until Christmass.

For the moment, my favorite Internet Radios are :
For a list of more than 1000 free radios on the web, you can have alook at Shoutcast (

Quick CV

I don't know if you have ever had a look at my long CV but it's quiet a long one. I have read in a article (in Bizz I believe) that a good CV should be at the most 3 pages. Therefore I have tried to rewrite my CV in a much shorter format . I have organized it along 5 aspects of my work that I like and that I want to continue to develop during my career:
  • Strategic Thinking
  • Leadership
  • Management & Team Work
  • Creative Solution Design
  • Marketing & Sales
The result is here : Quick CV and I have published in PDF and MS Word formats also here
