Piper

Yesterday I took Max to see “Finding Dory“. It was his first cinema experience – a day I’d looked forward to for a long time. Besides spilling popcorn everywhere it went without any incidents and we both enjoyed the much anticipated Pixar sequel. Before the movie Pixar premiered a 6 minute short film called “Piper”. A short […]

The Internet of Woo Things

I was unable to attend WooConf 2016, held in Austin, Texas with the arrival of Malakai in March. Luckily there is a fantastic video archive of all the WooConf presentations. Bryce Adams, one of Woo’s very own developers gave an interactive and eye opening presentations of the future of WooCommerce and what can be achieved using it’s open […]

The WooCommerce evolution

There are many images that encapsulate the growth and maturity of WooCommerce over the last couple years. I liked this IRL one. We attended IRCE back in 2014, humbly exhibiting our platform in Chicago, at the biggest ecommerce conference world-wide. We learned many lessons. Unfortunately, I can’t attend this year’s conference, but around 10 of […]

The “Fruitloop” Granny Wrangler has tagged me, and it looks like I have to organise a dinner party for myself and 9 lucky guests. So I give to you the list of my distinguished friends I shall invite: Mini Me: Not an actual mini me, mini me from Austin Powers, the one who humps the […]

Way too much spare time

Instead of spending your time reading a post that I don’t have time to write, spend it watching a guy, with a hell of a lot of free time, playing “dominoes pool”. Now imagine if he had spent that time doing something constructive. We’d probably have a cure for Aids.

Mentos Explosion – Soda Bottle Eruption

This is pretty random, but seeing today is pretty much a friday, with a long weekend ahead, why not? All you need is: A roll or box of Mentos (candy mints) and a 2-litre bottle of diet soda. Either diet or regular soda will work for this experiment, but diet soda is less sticky when […]

Viral marketing to the extreme!

I’ve read a lot of articles on how viral marketing is the newest and quickest form of advertising on the internet today. Chuck Norris quotes, Hasselhoff photos, and now http://www.helpwinmybet.com/. It’s absolutely amazing how quickly news can fly, and how quickly anything, literally anything, can get media attention if its whack enough! This guy has […]
