After a very hectic working period I am back with some reviews of the year 2007 and some predictions. I will jumpstart with my top 12 favorite movies for this year.
But first a recap and a necessary explanation for my readers. In November, there was among others the third Mobile Monday Amsterdam event (again successful with 220 attendants), my presentation on Nijenrode University on digital marketing within the Metaverse (this link on SlideShare for the whole presentation), my whole-day workshop at HRO on the Metaverse, different columns for Emerce, Reclameweek, Marketingfacts, Energize, ICSB as well as FEM Business ranging from marketing, communications, trends, web 2.0 and the best books for managers on digital media. Furthermore, my Twitter life didn't stop due to its incredible richness and innovativeness (last night was special due to the spontaneous OLPC campaign (One Laptop Per Child) resulting in 17 free laptops for the poorest in our world). Furthermore, I have visited Valencia in Spain (great city, architecture, food and atmosphere outstanding Felipe Science Museum, especially on genetics) and Paris (LeWeb3 event with some fantastic speeches by Nokia (their OVI release is a key milestone on the evolution of the mobile internet relative to Google and Apple), Doc Searls, Joi Ito, Hans Rosling, Jason Calacanis, Friis, Dave Winer, Ragmaswami). Here can see all the videos / presentations from LeWeb3, recommended viewing. On top of that was my 'normal freelance 40-hour work week' at Direct Wonen doing my digital marketing and redesign tricks, so you can probably imagine why there was no time left for me to blog :-)
And now...my top 12 movies of the year 2007:
- Das Leben der Anderen / The Lives of Others
- Pan's Labyrinth
- The Prestige
- 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days
- Sound of Sand
- Last King of Scotland
- Becoming Jane
- Sketches of Frank Gehry
- Eastern Promises
So what are your favorites of the year ?
