My family and I have just got back from a holiday in the South of France. (My good lady reports on it here). We spent the first part of the break staying with Sig, Tittin and the three politest teenagers on the planet. Thank you all. Sig and I managed a couple of rides in the hills in the hinterland, not as many as we would have liked to, but the season is but a puppy.
The second part of the holiday was spent in a sort of hut on the beach. I avoided the blogsphere, so I’m not going to jump into whatever has happened last week in the enterprise echo chamber just yet. My reading was strictly of the paper based variety. (More on that in a later post I think)
I met Sig via his blog, in fact it was probably from Hugh’s “is Thingamy a SAP killer” post, via Hamish’s Cardboard spaceship Small world. We have become good friends through cycling and a common interest in simpler software.
Thingamy is well worth having a look at. Sig has worked harder than anyone I know to focus in on simplicity. He is the zen master of simplicity.
The application can run from a USB stick. I’m not a developer, but there is something aesthetically pleasing about small and simple. Have a listen to a recent interview with Sig here. If I was at SAP ventures I’d take out the cheque book. Sig is onto something.
(This week will be busy. Next weekend I’m off to Sapphire in Atlanta. Not to speak on ERP, or apply my charms to customers, but to blog. I’m really looking forward to meeting the EI folks in the flesh. Thanks Mike. )
