Last week I visited an old watering hole with a former real estate client. He’d been one of the first to give our fledgling online business a go back in our first year (1999/2000), when it was far from certain that we had a valuable service, or that we’d even survive. [Our early clients gave...

Australia has notched up a world record – 26 years without a recession. That’s the longest time between recessions for any developed country, since records began. During  that time Australia has withstood the Asian economic crisis of 1997, the tech crash of 2000, 9/11, the global financial crisis of 2008 and a mining construction slowdown...

“I could leave you, say good-bye. I could love you if I try, and I could, and left to my own devices I probably would,” sang The Pet Shop Boys in 1988. It’s not one of the best songs ever written, but the ‘left to my own devices’ stuck in my mind, and, these days we are often left...

These days, if you think of the most amazingly successful, be wondering how well placed they will be a decade from now. 10 years ago, the top website in the world was MySpace. It was the first social media darling, quickly to...

From their 1-minute pitches, 15 or so teams were formed Friday night, who dutifully worked their way through their idea(s) before presenting in front of judges Sunday night. Most of them had a working product and some even had...

Does a company have the right to your twitter account after you leave their employment? Are they in control of what you send out while you work for them? Should they be? Can they be? Does it matter? These questions have vexed many a business owner and manager, and I’d like to share some of my...

The World Wide Web conference, now in its 26th year, hits Perth this week. The last time it visited Australian shores, in 1998 in Brisbane, a certain unknown couple of Stanford PhD students with an odd-sounded company name presented a paper showing how they were going to revolutionise the world of online search.

5 years ago I made it a new year’s resolution to start a blog. I’d been telling many of my clients they should blog and thought I should practice what I preach.
