Surfing in Bali here I come. Tonight I leave on a bit of an adventure and will be flying through Tapai to Denaspir Bali and then on to Kuhta to attend surf camp for 2.5 weeks.
I’m leaving the laptop at home for this one and am only taking a carry on bag, sandals, 2 t-shirts, 2 pairs of shorts and a fewÂ miscellaneous including a book on copy writing and the latest copy of INC magazine.
I’ll be checking in after I get settled but may have spotty Internet access until I return on December 3rd.
It’s been a great year, a busy year, and it’s time for a break.
Foursquare.com, a new social media / social networking site that is part game, part friend tracker, part review service hit Canada like a storm a couple of weeks ago when they launched in Vancouver.
Since the service launched “more than 3,000 venues and 1,500 users” have been added in Vancouver.
Yesterday I was interviewed by Gillian Shaw of the Vancouver Sun and was quoted in an article about Foursquare that was published today.
Here’s the quote:
Vancouver Web marketing consultant Adam Killam doesn’t mind sharing his whereabouts with friends on his social network. When he tweeted his intention to meet a friend at Earl’s in Yaletown and checked in with Foursquare when he got there, the manager sent free beer to their table.
“Especially being in the technology community, we all hang out in the same places and we want to meet. If you have a secret meeting in a shady part of town you may not want to share it,” he said, laughing.
I was recently interviewed by Business in Vancouver for an article on Cloud Computing.
Here is a snippet from the interview:
Although cloud computing has existed for a number of years, Microsoft Corp., Google and other IT heavyweights only recently began applying the label to their services.
Adam Killam, an Internet marketing consultant, noted that that Salesforce.com Inc. â€“ a company that delivers a customer management service over the Internet and whose name is synonymous with cloud computing â€“ was founded in 1999.
At that time, only larger companies had the connectivity required for cloud computing.
â€œNow the everyday mom-and-pop shop â€¦ can use an application thatâ€™s being used by some of the biggest businesses in the world,â€ said Killam, founder of the Vancouver Salesforce.com User Group.
â€œYou pay your $65 a month or whatever it is â€¦ and you get the same features and functionality that J.P. Morgan has.â€
