Follow me on Twitter and other news

You can follow my microblogging now on Twitter. Check out my profile or order directly Twitter RSS feed. Next week I will be in London at Omniture Summit 2009. Very interesting event coming up. If you want to meet and hook up with me, please drop me a line. I will write a recap with photos as soon as possible.

The next Web Analytics Wednesday will be held in Helsinki on TUESDAY May 26. If you or your sister, friend, co-worker or colleague want an invitation, send us email. And be ready to sign up because we have ONLY 100 seats and they are gone in couple of days. I'm pretty sure that some participants (maybe including me) carry on the event to Wednesday's first hours... : )

The next WAW will be about search metrics & analytics and there will be spekers from Eniro, Tulos and Deferon (case study). This time it will be held mostly in Finnish, sorry foreigners, but we will have apanel session in English, moderated by Steve Jackson and the whole WAA Finland board participating.

Regarding to search marketing and measuring, there will be my interview in the Firm magazine (in Finnish) and it should be out on April 24. If you are interested about eZ Publish content management system, we have a free seminar with Naviatech on 29th of April. I will speak little bit about open source stuff in general first and later on how to do search engine optimization with eZ Publish.

We have planned a Web Analytics application vendor list article in collaboration with Vierityspalkki. Please comment this post or let me know otherwise if we should do that, or you want me to write about other subjects as well.

My Resignition - April Fools' Day

I'm very sorry if my joke during April Fools' Day caused someone bad trauma. : ) This is the one I'm talking about:
"This is very short and kind of sad post. After four and a half years with Naviatech, I have decided to move on with analytics business full time. Today, I have given my resignition to the board of Naviatech. I don't know yet who will replace me as a CEO and I don't know what I'm going to do next. It's time to have a longer vacation and time with my family..."'
Atleast this created a peak of visits in my blog, as you can see.

These were the outcomes from my joke:

Phone calls: 3 (including board member and a client)
Facebook comments: 3
Facebook messages: 3
Fooled Naviatech people: 12
Job offers: zero

For some reason there are clear peaks also in the search volume with "april fools day" every year.
