You are what you read

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018 by Servage
The time we spend online What is is that we spend so much time with in the online world (besides work)? Reading an interesting article about this the other day (offline, can you believe it?), I learned that West Europeans spend about 1 hour every day online, reading blogs and news (not work, or other productive stuff, just the daily private catching up with personal interests). On top of that, they spend 15 min every day, checking if new blog entries or news have been posted... I couldn't help but wonder, if we are all really getting to that point where we - on top of consuming a lot of information via the Internet - also spend another ...

Will your survive tomorrow?

Thursday, December 20th, 2012 by Servage
December 21st is one of the days predicted to become the end of the world. Will your website, your and the rest of human kind survie tonight? For some more background information, the general info from Wikipedia says: "The 2012 phenomenon was a range of eschatological beliefs that cataclysmic or transformative events would occur around 21 December 2012. This date was regarded as the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, and as such, Mayan festivities to commemorate the end of the b'ak'tun 13 took place on 21 December 2012 in the countries that were part of the Mayan empire (Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El ...

Success with multiple platforms

Sunday, May 29th, 2011 by Servage
It's not easy creating something useful, fun and successful online. Competition is merciless, there are literally hundreds of thousands of alternatives, and customers switch around between products with an incredible pace. Tolerance for bad products, service or pricing is very low. So creating something with a continuos success, even on multiple platforms is quite an accomplishment. One of the most interesting things in recent years has been the introduction of even more platforms than we had before combined with the explosion of users of various devices. Once we "just" had Windows for the consumer market, with some competition from consoles for gaming. Today Linux and Mac systems are increasingly competing with ...

The world went dark for a brighter future

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011 by Servage
Earth Hour 2011 seems to have been a great success. We introduced you to the event in this post. On March 27th 2011 at 20:30 local time many places went dark. Around the globe even entire cities participated, shutting down large amounts of energy consuming lights in streets and buildings. While possible negative effects on power grids, and the question of an overall positive effect on energy concumption from this event can be argued, the fact remains, that many people in a record 134 participating countries made a statement. We are aware of the problem. You can read how the Earth Hour progressed in an official press release, among ...

Earth Hour 2011

Thursday, March 24th, 2011 by Servage
The World Wildlife Foundation is trying to get the world to shut of it's lights for the Earth Hour again this year. On their website they have released the following information about the event, which I find is a nice statement from the people, showing the will, not only to think, but also to act, greener. Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating. ...

Modern Valentines Day Preparations

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011 by Servage
And here we go again... Valentines Day 2011 is coming up, and yet again many females set high expectations and wishes for this day, which males run around all confused with all this emotional, flowery stuff and try to fulfill. It's one of those typical situations where male and female in many cases are predetermined to end up in conflict, because their views on certain aspects of life are just so fundamentally different. Now please, don't be insulted that this article is taking a very conservative view of the whole Valentines Day concept and relations between men and women. Not to forget about same-sex couples etc. This is merely meant ...

Integrate different platforms to serve your customers better

Monday, January 17th, 2011 by Servage
Only a few years ago most computer applications were based on a single system. Especially for consumers. You would purchase a software license, install a program, and run it on that particular computer. The files would the stored locally, and you only worked with that software and those files on that machine. Then backups became popular, and people started distributing their software on extra drives, maybe had copies of files on their desktop and laptop computer, and in later years even uploading files to cloud services. I earlier mentioned Dropbox as a brilliant service for that type of service, where you can keep your files in sync between multiple computers. ...
