Blogday | Nicole Simon's Useful Sounds


01.09.2005 - 01:45 / filled under default

When thinking about "who would I like to link to" the immediate thought was "oh hell, we will have that 'nobody links to female bloggers!!!' discussion again". But then again, I don't like linking to women just because of that. Second thought was "this will be quite US centric, let's just put in some European blogs!" - but that would just be the same in green. But in the end, you stay with the old same old: People you know personally, you like, and share interests.

Soooo ... And here are the results of the Useful Sounds jury (extra points for having the cultural background to understand that quote).

I took a look at my blog reading list, combined it with the memory of reboot, mixed in some of the upcoming podcast conference in London and took also smaller bloglines subscriber numbers in account. ;)

People, who read this blog also might enjoy reading the following:

I wanted to put Rick Segal on the list because I especially love his "me as a customer" related stories, but when looking up the link, I saw that I was on his blogday list. Just having a back link would just look like "oh you too!!", so I decided to make that an extra link. And get away with only having five links. Well, sort of. ;)

  • Starting with a woman, and not a quota one: Rachel Clarke. Met her at reboot, loved to see her ink-chat. Continued to be interesting in her blog. [Which covers female, European and little island UK. ;)]

  • Covering Swiss and French as next: Laurent Haug, consultant for blogs and wikis and such, plus he writes good articels to show off his skills. Laurant also has the Swiss Internet Professionals Index on his page.

  • Going south a bit, also reboot folks: Pedro from Centopeia and André from delaranja are two guys from Portugal, who post so little, that they count as one link. ;) I enjoy conversations with them not only because of the tech stuff but also because they presented Portugal as a country to me. And both have much nicer designs than I have. ;)

  • Portuguese in part, meet Mark aka bicyclemark. Podcaster but also blogger with strong interest in politics and democracy. Worth a read and a listen. As he is in part also American, this brings us to

  • American Copywriter, the blog. John and Tug not only do a wonderful podcast, but also post from time to time on their blog from the world of advertisement. If you have advertisement as a basic interest, you will love them.

Enjoy reading them. But not because this is "5 'reboot'-people and two podcaster, two continents, pure english and even a woman" but because they write interesting stuff. :)
