Sudcorie

Ce matin on regardait un match de foot (hé oui) avec Thomas.
Le commentateur TV parle de "l'attaquant Sud-Coréen" Park

Thomas (6 ans et demi) me dit: " Ca je connaissais pas encore comme pays : la Sudcorie".

Crashed ePaper Websites

When you search on ePaper, you will find some really outdated websites. Look for example at http://www.epaper.org.uk/. It seems that some people had than jumped on their board to surf an ePaper wave that lasted too long to arrive.

I'm aware that this market might take years before really taking off, but I'm confident it will eventually fly.

Yesterday, Apple released the iPad but I'm confident that ePaper will provide solutions with much lower energy consumption which will allow a competitive advantage. ePaper should provide a more stable and cheaper technology for long term consultation of eContent.

But it might take time : I'm ready to spend many years doing this on the side even if I'd prefer to have ePaper as primary activity :
  • Design/Architect innovative content production chains with ePaper as Preferred client
  • Develop the best integration software that couples the strongest platforms
  • Design for the best eReaders
  • Re-sell all or part of total ePaper solution (hardware, software, content and services)

2010 Business Goals : LVPN

I have finalized a business goal tree for 2010. AppePaper Business goals are architectured according to a LVPN principle:
  • L = Leadership. Show leadership in designing and delivering epaper Applications
  • V = Visibility. Create visibility on ePaper knowledge.
  • P = Profit. Transform ePaper leadership in Profit via consulting and projects.
  • N = Non-Profit. Use some time to participate in non-profit ePaper projects (for instanve: give eReaders to schools)

ePaper Reader Purchase not for this weekend.

This weekend I wanted to go to Antwerp to buy a IREX Digital Reader 1000S but probably I'm not going to do it.

I have seen there were many announcements at CES (Ex : CES 2010 in teken van digitaal lezen ), maybe I should wait to buy some more recent technology. The DRS1000S has been there for more than a year now. On the others side, the reader is very cool. I especially like the fact that you can write and draw on it.

Furthermore, the weather conditions will be very difficult this weekend (snow !). Is it a sign that I should wait a bit more ? Maybe yes, maybe no, we will think about it...

Planning for 2010

Today is the first monday of my sabbatical.

There are so many things I want to achieve this year from a professional but also from a personal perspective that I absolutely need to structure and plan them adequately.

To do so I will use the following software (Linux/Ubuntu):
