I will be interviewing Seth Godin at Yes We Trust Summit, come join me đź¤˛

Yes We Trust Summit is this year’s most ambitious privacy event, gathering marketers, compliance & tech executives around the idea that privacy drives trust and growth. Find our more on yes-we-trust.com.

A couple of years ago, I have shared – in French and on this blog – how much I enjoyed reading Seth Godin’s book “Tribes,” which almost energized me to the point of launching my company! Much more recently, I have also read his classic “Permission Marketing” and, I don’t remember when exactly when I watched it, but I also warmly recommend the hilarious “This is broken” TED Talk from 2006.

He will be one of the star speakers at Yes We Trust Summit, and I will have the pleasure to moderate the Q&A with the audience.

Joachim Gaucks “Toleranz” ist eine wichtige Erinnerung an das, was Menschen verbindet

Ich habe das Buch des vorherigen Bundespräsidenten (geschrieben mit der Journalistin Helga Hirsch) vor knapp einem Jahr in Düsseldorf gekauft, und es lange liegen gelassen.

Erstens, weil ich Abends und während meiner Wochenenden nicht immer Lust hatte, ein Buch aufzuschlagen, dass so ein “schweres” Thema angeht. Zweitens, weil mir damals die ersten Seiten den Eindruck gegeben haben, dass das Buch viel hitorischer und philophischer war, als ich es erwartet hätte (was in den späteren Kapiteln nicht mehr der Fall ist).

In den diesjährigen Sommerferien habe ich mich endlich dazu entschlossen, es zu Ende zu lesen… und ich habe es sehr genossen. Hier teile ich einige meiner Lieblingspassagen. Continue reading →

Articles I enjoyed in the last five (!) months: Switching jobs, the risk of VC investment & Parisian etiquette

paris etiquetteThe last blog post I wrote about my favorite articles dates 5 months back. It feels like an eternity.

These have been pretty eventful: I switched from one tech company to another, have taken time for myself between both jobs, picked up running quite seriously again, spent a lot of time reading, and – now – we’re in the midst of a global pandemic. Crazy. Let me share 10 tweets from the last five months… which may or may not be related to the above events. Continue reading →

Benjamin Franklin’s List of 13 Virtues

I have just finished Benjamin Franklin’s autobiography (full text here), a short and entertaining read written in 18th century English. Once you get used to the prose, it becomes very enjoyable to read. I learned a lot about the founding father, his life and travels (including that he started writing the autobiography just across the Seine, in 1784), his views, skills, inventions and various projects as a public servant.

Yet if you follow me on Twitter, you’ve noticed that I have been actively reading and watching stuff anyway. Here’s a digest of what inspired me most since the beginning of July. Continue reading →
