Getting out more

January 2, 2007

I met Natalie and Tim from Decisive Flow just before Christmas. I’ve been following their blog and keeping an eye out for their public beta since they had some media coverage about PlanHQ a few months back, so it was good to meet them in person and talk a little about what they’re doing. I was a bit surprised when Natalie told me I was the first Trade Me person she had actually met.

Have we been that elusive? Stink!

I had two excellent opportunities to talk about Trade Me in 2006, firstly at Webstock in Wellington in May and later at Microsoft TechEd in Auckland. The audiences at these conferences were quite different, but in both cases full of interesting people working with technology. Both were like a direct injection of enthusiasm. I really enjoyed sharing some of what we’ve learned so far at Trade Me and it seemed to be pretty well received.

I’m keen to get out of the office even more this year.
