When Google calls (Google Wave Project on Amazee) , everybody comes. Such as it happened last night with Google Wave. The Wave Guys and Lady had organized a TechTalk about Google Wave at the Google Offices in Zurich. And most of the people behind Google Wave were there!
Already at the entrance we recognized that this will be a big event with a lot of interested programmers and techies from very different companies. First we had some pizza and beer.
Yesterday it was once again time to learn from another Swiss Tech CEO. Wuala's co-founder Dominik Grolimund came to the Business Chuchi to present their story and learnings after a somewhat spectacular exit with French hardware giant LaCie this summer. Wuala will again present on 10 December, when their Marketing expert Oona Grauers will talk about Wuala's Marketing and Community Management strategy.
Yes, we are back from yet another trip up into the mountains, with a lot of strategic finetuning and great new ideas for Amazee to become even better! And for your sore eyes there are new team pictures coming up.
It was another happy gathering at yesterday's 10th Web Monday.
Yet another startup business has survived the intense Chuchi heat! Last night witnessed another installment of the Marketing Chuchi (Chuchi being the Swiss German word for kitchen), a regular meetup of Marketing pros from the Swiss startup scene. This time around it was Gbanga's turn to sweat.

For the first time I joined an INet Basel event yesterday evening - and it was worth every minute. Prof. Thomas Scheibel came in from Germany to present his team's innovation: the productio of artificial spider silk. His grand tour included an introduction to bionics and a good overview on the challenges, qualities and potential appliances of spider silk.
On Roland Studer's initiative we met for the first UX Book Club yesterday evening. The piece we all read was Nathan Shedroff's Design is the Problem. The focus of the book isn't really UX, however, the idea was to start with some literature that takes a fundamental approach to sustainable design. As broad as the book made us think, as difficult it was to create the "take-aways" for our everyday job in Web.
