The starfish and the spider

I just finishing reading the book "The starfish and the spider" that I got from Werner. I like the concept of spider and starfish. It helps to discuss strategies. But on the other hand it think starfish is a new word for things we know already a long time: grassroot and bottom-up. The new thing is that we are now able to work grassroot and bottom-up using the information and communication technologies. Maybe the power that comes from the combination is what makes starfishes so important. And ignites a true social landslide in the way we work and live.

Customize your 3g phone into a blackberry

These three apps i find indispensible for a 3g phone:

unless it's an Apple iphone of course.

It still miss a mobile version of my Google calender. Hopefully that's coming this year. Google, please ?

If mobile operators would charge resonable rates for the datatraffic then I think 2007 will become the year that we all starting to read mail on a phone now and then. Because the above three apps almost transform every phone with a colour screen that can execute Java Midlets (an that are a lot of phones) almost into a Blackberry. And let's face it, don't we all want one like our CEO just like we wanted a GSM back in '98 because all important people already had one ?
