2011-12: Looking Back, Looking Forward – Part 1

As I write this on the last day of 2011, the Year is about to transition. A New Year is a good time to reflect on the recent past and think about the future.

My life can be thought of as three compartments – business, some of the political change part, and the personal bits. Let’s start with the business part.

I wrote recently about Netcore’s business on the blog. The year had started with great hope, but the regulation changed in the SMS business has dampened some of that enthusiasm. As we rebuild the mobile infra and marketing business, the email marketing business is showing great promise has become the growth engine for us.

Our inability to make MyToday work was more a reflection on some of the decisions we made, but there are some interesting new ideas that we have been thinking. The mobile web opens up a lot of opportunities, and perhaps we can apply some of the work and learnings in a new context. Life’s empty moments continue to be there – and all we have for company is the mobile device.

Continued tomorrow.
