Day 100 of visiting 100 blogs in 100 days...

Day 100 of visiting 100 blogs in 100 days... finally takes me to my last blog!
I was looking for a blog that was clear, concise and compelling. So I've settled on Signum sine tinnitu--by Guy Kawasaki. The subtitle: Blogger. n. Someone with nothing to say writing for someone with nothing to do. (Like visiting 100 blogs in (more than) 100 days.

Guy Kawasaki is a legend in the Apple cult, as he was the Apple Evangelist in the eighties.

"When I saw what a Macintosh could do, the clouds parted and the angels started singing. For four years I evangelized Macintosh to software and hardware developers and led the charge against world-wide domination by IBM."

I saw Guy speak at a PalmSource Devloper Conference a couple of years back and his engaging talk centered around what Silicon Valley venture firms were looking for in terms of companies that were attempting to make a case for their startup business plan. That's when I've learned the importance of keeping PowerPoints down to 12 slides - i.e. be clear, concise and compelling, not only in your pitch, but in your software as well.

Guy has some great postings: my favorites include - The Art of Customer Service, The Art of Branding, How to Be a Demo God and How to Prevent a Bozo Explosion. Check them out -

His posts reflect years as a evangelist, entrepreneur, investment banker, and venture capitalist. So here's a blog that just as good as reading a book or sitting down with a mentor. Enjoy!

Guy is one of my favorite bloggers and a very inspiring man, to say the least! He certainly knows the meaning of customer evangelism and provides many tips on the subject -a subject I find very fascinating as well!
