My Life so far…

I am now in my 40’s – hit the mid point with out much fan fair – I am currently residing in picturesque Singapore.

SG Skyline

Born in the Land of the Long white Cloud New Zealand I spent most of my growing years in a small town called Stratford which is under a beautiful mountain called Mount Taranaki – it was called Mt Egmont after the person who climbed it first but now it has changed to Mt Taranaki. When i could escape (just kidding) I ventured to Wellington and Auckland, until even these cities where not big enough for me and over to Sydney I went – wow 20 years in Sydney was an amazing roller coaster.

Now i am in Singapore and love the Asian style Singapore offers expats. Gone are the heady days when expats lived in luxury (some still do but not so many) – Being in Singapore allows me to travel to other Asian Destinations which is what i really enjoy most – low cost enticing resorts by the sea. I am not very good at learning a new language so I only speak english – I hope to learn mandarin soon.

I enjoy meeting people and I think they enjoy meeting me as I have an amusing and entertaining personality. If you would like to impress me all you need to do is send me chocolates !

    Hi,

    I chanced upon your blog when I search for Secondlife and Singapore.

    I had been exploring SL for quite some time. Had a plot of land which I had turned it into a marketplace. Xin Pa Sat (if you search “singapore” in SL). Of course the name comes from our real life Lau Pa Sat.

    I am interested to market or even sell real world products and services in the marketplace. I saw in your profile and some of your articles that you are moving and exploring into that as well?

    I am currently approaching some real world shops (small ones, the big ones with lots of capitals for marketing don’t see any value in that) that does their commerce online and are offering them to setup shop, or adverrtise, within the market place. Do you have any in mind that you feel the virtual world environment may be a plus for them rather than ebay or yahoo auctions?

    Thanks.

    Andrew – great blog…

    I am trying to emerge from being a tech laggard by getting more involved online and blogging. I have just discovered Second Life recently and am very curious. Specifically, I am curious about the key success factors / strategies for companies to effectively leverage the virtual world for brand recognition or even realizing extra profit. I ask because I came upon many articles dismissing the hype and citing failures as in the case of American Apparel.

    Thanks for the content!

  17. Hi Andrew!

    Great meeting ya at the Blogger’s Event last week.

    I did the fun poll on the side about Mark Zuckerberg, and although i know no one takes that little poll seriously, but i’m still surprised by the results where majority voted him “a geek” and “very lucky”! Humph. Ok i’m just making a fuss cause i thought he was pure genius and another Bill Gates (both answers ranked at the bottom!)

    It is scary and exciting isn’t it? The internet (or would you say web 2.0/social media per se) are proving that these young punks can easily beat huge corporations with decades of history in a matter of only a few years.

    Remember Shawn Fanning of Napster? Now there’s Cameron Johnson (http://cameronjohnson.com/), some 23 year old guy who started a profitable business at the age of 9. While most of our younger generation indulge in online games and become a slouch potato watching reality shows, there are also the few taking note of this phenomenon and devising ways to make tons of money. 😀
