Strategy seminar

22 February 2002

I was supposed to meet with Pete Mazany first thing this morning to talk about my PhD. Alas, I think we both ran out of time and had to abandon-it.

Went to a great seminar by Kevin Scholes of Johnson and Scholes — Exploring corporate strategy fame. It is nice to meet someone who is so passionate about their teaching. He is also a great story teller.

Had a chat with Biljana in marketing about Mike’s Bikes. It was good to talk about a subject that really interests us both.

I’ve noticed that that the battery in my old Palm Pilot is pretty low. In fact I really should get around to backing it up. Alas, when I upgraded to Windows XP I found the Palm desktop software would no longer install and work correctly. Having said that, a search of the Palm site indicates that an updated desktop (4.10) is available. I’ll have to try that later.

Added a couple of more tools on the footer. Now it is possible to view the page in a format that is more printer friendly. It is also possible to view the source code for any particular page—just click on the ? (if you can see it). All I need to do now is to get the email working …

At last I’ve managed to set up everything so I can update this remotely. It’s amazing what technology can do.

Oy vey! Well I installed the new Pilot desktop when I got home to night. Alas, my little Pilot well and truly crashed during the Hot Sink. Even resetting it wouldn’t work. So, I took the option to clear the data. So, I have a working, but very empty Palm Pilot.

Oh, and I didn’t have a back up. Doh!
