Next 6 months are going to be crucial


Tomorrow we will head home for Denmark after 4 wunderfull weeks at our summer home in Piemont, Italy. It's been a perfect summer with lots of sun and warm weather. Today the temperature reached 33 C in the shadow.

Family and friends have been the center of my attention for the past weeks, but there has also been time for some deep thoughts over my personal situation. It has now 6 months since I stopped as managing director for Strålfors Information Logistics in Denmark and the search for a new job has to be intensified. The job market is still very tough - also on CxO level - so I'm not too optimistic.

On the positive side, the turnover in my e-store - nikonphotoexpert.com - reached a new monthly record in July. The margins are slim but it's developing in the right direction. My ambition for 2nd half 2012 is to double the monthly average revenue from the first half 2012.

Last - but not least - I have an idea for a new e-commerce company, that I'm investigating.

More to come....

"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

SnapScan 9000 - be prepared for a laugh

Can you guess who the nice young man is in the image? It is me as a high school student - important years - where my passion for photography really took off. My god - 35 years has passed since those happy years.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
