It’s hard to blog when you feel that you should add some sort of value to the ongoing conversation. Simply adding your two cents to a story is perfectly okay, but my firm belief is that the blogs that become influential are the ones providing analysis and insight rather than just opinions. You know what they say about opinions. Because of this, many people start masking their opinions as analysis – and that’s where the […]
For all my Swedish readers, below is a presentation that I held at APG Sweden tonight. Together with Jonas I put together a string of ideas regarding the increasing connections between digital and physical. It was nice and liberating to talk to a group of people that appreciate and value the abstract and visionary, for a change. Although the structure of the presentation needs some work, I think the audience thought a few of the […]
I saw Chris Anderson at Media Evolution in Malmö the other day (along with everybody else). I liked it, and it made me think. A thought: does free work in the long tail? I’ll try to keep this short. If freemium works by letting 90-something percent get the content for free, and the remaining percentage pay for everyone, the site has to have a certain number of visitors to make any business viable. That number […]
It’s been a long and tough week, and the weekend is looking to end in a not-so-good way either as I’m feeling a bit sick. But I feel I must write a few lines about an amazing event that I took part of this week. I am, of course, talking about 24 Hour Business Camp that took place at Hasseludden Yasuragi, just outside of Stockholm. If you are not familiar with the event you can […]
It has nothing to do with anything, but I was very happy when I found out that I was one of Medievärlden´s seven “Media Profiles” for 2009. Below is a PDF with the picture and short interview that was featured in their January issue. medievarlden Publish at Scribd or explore others:

I’m glad you’re still here. The site has changed as you may have seen. If not, then you are reading through RSS and hopefully nothing has changed at all 🙂 Either way the colour profile is a bit off so far, but we’re getting there. Hold tight. One of the things I’ve been thinking about is whether I should keep writing this blog in English or not. The rest of our site is now in […]
After being Jaiku-loyal for years, I’m giving Twitter a shot again. Would love to connect with people that read this blog! On both protocols of course. bjornjeffery@Twitter and bjornjeffery@Jaiku.
I agree with a part of the analysis – media companies are often disconnected from reality – but I don’t agree with the conclusion. For me, there is nothing saying that organisations trying to reinvent themselves can’t do as good a job of it as outsiders. Admittedly the ‘internal’ innovation is often driven by fear rather than vision. But the results don’t have to be affected by the motives. (via Thomas Crampton, who also did […]
This is a long post that just follows my brain´s way of reasoning, not a coherent idea from beginning to end. Bare with me 🙂 I ended up in an interesting discussion the other day. If you speak Swedish you can find it here. In short, I responded harshly (although it was initially meant to be sharp, rather than harsh) to a comment about the legitimacy of the IPCC in a Jaiku-thread. As the discussion […]
