Welcome to Blog 2.0

Okay, here we go: Welcome to Alles gut? - my personal blog 2.0. It's the successor to the Site-9 Weblog, which I maintained for the last 3,5 years. I am still trying to make myself at home and get familiar with Wordpress. A lot of things are not ready yet. So if you stumble over some bugs, please let me know! And please keep the fingers crossed that I find more time to blog than I did over the last months... ;-) But now with no further ado... back to the regular programming...

Gone fishing

If you check my whereabouts on Plazes for the next couple of days, you will probably see something like this... I leave tomorrow for a nice hotel on the beach of a little island. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it? Only "downside": I 'll be kind of offline, meaning no emails. So if there is anything important you need to talk to me about, I am afraid, it has to wait 'til Nov 6th. See you then...

Back on the Blog

I know, it was a little bit quiet around here for the last couple of weeks. My excuse? A lot of traveling to plazes with very poor wifi coverage! Unfortunately FON still haven't taken over Europe. I also was pretty busy with all the projects I am currently working on, so there was hardly any time left for blogging - sorry for that ! Good news is: the next weeks look much more relaxed. So Site-9 should be back on the blog... At least, for the time being... ;-) Btw, back in October I briefly mentioned a blog project for "a big German telecom company". While there is still nothing officially launched, I can now write a bit more about this. The client is the mobile carrier O2 Germany. During the summer we have put together a blog strategy and are now working on its implementation. The first result of this will be Mobile-Macs.de - a website which will host a kind of central repository for knowledge about how to use Apple Macs with mobile devices - mobile phone, pdas, data cards etc. It will consist of a blog and a wiki and I hope it will solve a lot of problems which Mac users - including myself - currently are having... So much for now. More about that in a few weeks, when we launch the whole thing... hopefully before the end of this month... keep the fingers crossed...

Back on the Blog

I know, not much happened here over the last few weeks. I am currently working on several weblog projects that kept me busy. Some of them are internal, so there won't be much to see for the outside world. But the external blogs will be launched pretty soon and I am anxious to see how this all will work out... More about it later... Looks like I missed quite a lot during my little hiatus - things like the Business Week Blog cover story, the Tiger launch and last but not least the Guess-the-Google ! But everybody else wrote about it. So I am sure, I wasn't missed much. ;-)

Extreme Makeover Complete !

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about planning a redesign for Site-9. This was in the works for quite some time now. It was a bumpy ride and took much longer than originally anticipated - but anyway... ...now it's online and I hope you like it. If you see any bugs or problems, please drop me a line ! Many thanks to Nico for being so patient and doing an excellent job !!!

Site-9 gets ready for an Extreme Makeover

After nearly two years of service, this weblog desperately needs a major renovation. So right now, we are working on an all-new design, which should be ready within the next two weeks. That is also the reason why blogging was pretty light over the last weeks. But I am confident that this will change after the relaunch ! Another minor change: while most of my postings will still be in English, I will begin to write occasionally in German, too. Mostly about things, which I think, are more interesting to my German readers than to people from other countries. I will start with tomorrow’s stop of the virtual book tour for “Kauf! Mich! Jetzt!” (Buy Me Now!) - a book written by Bernd Röthlingshöfer.
