Do you have more to know?

Chris Collison

I’m always embarrassed by my inability to speak another language, having never really progressed beyond my schoolboy French and Spanish. I’m frequently humbled by clients and friends around the world whose command of English and desire to learn more puts me to shame.

Secret of my (our) success

Viv Mcwaters

Other talented people I’d like to hang out with more are all over the planet - in Canada, Zambia, the US, England, Spain, Italy, Taiwan, New Zealand (and there’s a few others in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth…) But I digress. Half jokingly I often say that I hang out with talented people, and that’s the secret of my success. It’s only partly a joke because it happens to be true.

Learning that Sinterklaas doesn't exist = double loop learning

Joitske Hulsebosch

At this age, you are not supposed to believe in Sinterklaas, hundreds of years old, coming by boat from Spain and bringing all the presents. Image via Wikipedia Sinterklaas time again in the Netherlands!

Witnessing the historical moment of Spain winning the World Cup Final for the first time! Today is exactly one month and one day since Spain beat The Netherlands in the World Cup Final 1-0 and, when one comes to think about it, it sounds like it all happened a few years back already!

Social Media Flies Past Email and Search for Web Usage

Portals and KM

Ross also lists the top countries in social media and blog usage: Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, U.K., I can remember when Email and Search were the top two in Web usage (aside from porn). Of course, I can remember when there was no Web. Times have changed. Ross Dawson recently shared (on his blog) a new Nielsen report with detailed statistics on online activity that I learned about from his Twitter feed.

Social Media Clout: Klout them up – don’t you know who I am?

Laurel Papworth- Social Network Strategy

Culture: Again Sinterklaas (even deeply embedded traditions are dynamic)

Joitske Hulsebosch

Traditionally (read: in my time), sinterklaas would arrive by boat from spain on television mid November to disappear apart from a felt presence through the chocolate sigarettes you would find in your shoe.

Solutions for An Ageing Population in the Era of Open Business

And that’s just for the US, country where perhaps ageing is not as alarming as in other countries like Japan, Spain or Italy. In Spain, as another example, how many of you are somewhat aware of Eurojoves ?).

Southern Soul Food in Washington DC

Portals and KM

The Africans, the French Huguenots and the Sephardic Jews from Portugal and Spain influenced the cooking with foods from their homeland.” I was recently in Washington DC for the KM World 2010 and Enterprise Search Summit 2010. I still get excited to walk around our capital and enjoyed looking at the buildings and taking in a few museums while there. Growing up in New Orleans I am partial to Southern food so I looked for this offering in DC. Below are my findings.

Moments of Happiness They Can’t Take Away from You

Elsua

But then again, just like Spain has done with its national football team, there has got to be a time when that has got to stop, when power, greed and money no longer rule, where we can ponder about what things were wrong, how we could address them and try to fix each and everyone of them.

Gran Canaria – Celebrating the Mini-Continent

Elsua

In fact, all along, I have always felt it was probably the best decision I have ever made in my life, next perhaps to the one I have made 10 years later when, just recently, a bit over a month ago, I decided to make a move from IBM after 17 years of service in three different countries: The Netherlands, Ireland and Spain. It’s the second longest place I have ever lived in, apart from my family place, back in mainland Spain (León). Today is a special day for yours truly.

Sinterklaas culture

Joitske Hulsebosch

In the newspaper, people wrote about Sinterklaas as the ultimate expression of fantasy and play: a whole country doing its best to make children believe Sinterklaas arrives by boat from Spain. Today is Sinterklaas! I went to see him at the school of my children and we'll celebrate it with presents and poems this afternoon.
