I just found this video that I created a while ago, it’s titled “Life of a Technology Evangelist”, and it’s a collection of hundreds of pictures that I’ve taken during my trips. I’m sure you will enjoy it. Life of a Technology Evangelist 🙂 from Simone Brunozzi on Vimeo. Ah, by the way: we’re hiring Technology Evangelists in Asia and Europe. This is the Job Description for the one in India, but we have positions available in Singapore and Australia.

I just watched this one over lunch (yes, if there are only 24 hours in a day and you can’t change that, you can make a better use of your time): it’s a TED talk by Bryan Stevenson. It quickly became one of my all-time favorites. I don’t want to tell you anything about it. Watch it. Simple as that. Ah, by the way: it seems that TEDsters liked it as well. In fact, this talk received the strongest standing ovation ever seen at TED (according to Wikipedia).

I believe it will be an even more wonderful year. Can’t wait!
Tomorrow: South Africa. Can’t wait. Job opportunities at Amazon APAC.

Resonate: one of the best books on presentations that I’ve ever read. Unfortunately, I don’t know Nancy Duarte personally, and I cannot recommend her services (trainings, etc). But the book is pure gold. Buy it.
In the past few weeks, I’ve happily watched The Long Way Round DVD for several hours. (it also includes The Long Way Down, which is another trip).

If you don’t know, the Long Way Round is an adventure organized by Ewan Mcregor, a very successful british actor, and Charley Boorman, an actor as well. They ride motorbikes from London…
