This is the short version on what I do here. Read more on nicole-simon.eu.
I love working with people and help them get successful, especially through the use of social software. Though I have been on the net for over a decade and have consulted SMB for years, I also understand the corporate side, as I have worked in a major corporation for 15 years.
If you need a name for what I do, I usually call myself a European New Media Specialist with a special interest in (micro) blogging, podcasting and second life / virtual worlds.Â I also love to ‘testdrive’ products / concepts which is best described as Technology Implementation Analyst. Recently I have finished the German Twitter book and will specialize a bit in 2009 on this topic as well as building more bridges between communities.
Why ctbk? Smooth-tongued responses are for the timid ones, and if there are no challenges, there is nothing to gain either. :)
A more official version if you need it
