Inspired by @mindblob and by the fact that I’ll be presenting at the wawest conference , I decided that it’s time to get back to this blog.

I haven’t been doing nothing in the meantime. Not at all. I was here, moderating a huge mobile battle,  here, learning about how to get married web 2.0 style, here, challenged to think about how to change the world, and here, enjoying a warm summer night with the best tweeps ever . I haven’t stopped learning or enjoying my life either (taking my first sailing lessons, waw!) . I HAVE stopped blogging, though. For quite some time.

The reason : there is a new man in my life. Alexander. 10 months old at the moment. So here he is, staring at the sea with my other man.

I cherish our moments together. I love to watch my son grow up. Bottom line .. Important things first. Of course.

Having more or less found this difficult-to-find-balance-between-work-and-family, here I am … back to blog.

Ready steady Go

The Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences in Brussels has always been one of my favourite museums. At the moment, it is hosting the exposition ‘Survivors of the X-treme’, showing how animals survive in the hottest, darkest, coldest, in other words the most extreme environments. Last weekend, we went there with our nephews of 3 and 8 years old.

The website is travelling the world. And that’s no surprise. On Eternal Moonwalk, you can see people and other creatures doing the famous Michael Jackson moonwalk. And if you are inspired, you can film your very own moonwalk and add it to the website. Result right now are thousands of movies from all over the world. Some so funny and creative that you just have to keep on watching.

Eternal Moonwalk is an initiative from the Belgian radio channel Studio Brussel. The idea is Belgian as well. Behind it are Group 94 and Mortierbrigade. Proud to see a Belgian initiative conquer the world.

Sometimes, the things you learn from YouTube films can be very practical and save you a lot of time and effort. Watch and learn how to open a banana. Properly. Like the monkeys do. Via Zofie.

We were out of bananas, but I’ll give it a try once we have bananas in the house :-).

werchterTomorrow, I’m attending the famous Rock Werchter Festival with my sister. Very much looking forward to it. With artists like Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and 2ManyDJs it will be hard not to enjoy the music. Moreover, the weather will be very sunny, which will only enhance the atmosphere.

big rubber duck in HasseltIn the harbour of my hometown Hasselt, there is a brand new attraction: a huge rubber duck floating on the water and enjoying the summer sun.

The duck announces the beginning of a challenging art project in Limburg, called ‘Zoom Out’. The project wants to unfold the borders of art, architecture and landscape. Moreover, it wants to find out in which way art can be used in public spaces.

I’m pregnant, yes I am. Our baby, who we call ‘babes’ while in my tummy, is due around the 23d of November :-).

Even though being pregnant means being very tired, I have done quite some geeky things meanwhile. Like visiting London with the Girl Geeks (I only had the suspicion back then that I could be pregnant), like going for an @twunch lunch, like attending the interesting conference ‘Social media in Belgium: building brands via social media and blogs’. Like announcing on Twitter that I’m pregnant. I loved the reactions. Some wished me luck with ‘our tweep’ (Twitter person), so babes already has a nickname: tweep.

While in my tummy, babes has already visited a lot of places and met a lot of people. That’s why I started a set of photos on Flickr, named ‘while waiting for babes’. Too bad I haven’t taken more pictures, but there are still 5 months left 🙂 .

The pics (with comments in Dutch) can be found via this link or you can have a quick look at the slideshow here:

  • Last Wednesday: geeking with the girls. Lovely, as usual. Especially lovely, ’cause it was the first time with no males at all. They were banned. Yes, they were. Nivea sponsored this edition and gave us all some great beauty tips ànd a make-over. Nothing for real males in other words. Sorry that the dinner’s heart and soul, Clo, couldn’t make it. She fell ill. Next dinner is on the 10th of March. Topic is ‘mobile’.

When starting a presentation or task, I often browse through the website Brainyquote. It is a huge online database of quotes, quotes and quotes. You can search by author, theme, keyword,… It always helps me to get inspired or to get my starting point right. Recently, I have discovered the quotes of the American journalist Sydney J. Harris.

“The two words ‘information’ and ‘communication’ are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through.”
