Monotheism 101– Fiji Edition

Pascal's View

  My theological work in Fiji was done. One of my favorite tropical drinks is dark rum, tonic, and a generous lime wedge, served in a tall glass with lots of ice.    I sat down at Navutu's beach-side bar in the beautiful Yasawa islands yesterday evening, ordered my favorite, and the bartender made some conversation as he prepared the refreshing potion.    This is what followed: "Are you going to go to church tomorrow?"

The Equity Kicker

The surfer is Sean Woolnough, the wave was in Namoto Island, Fiji, and the photo was taken by Stuart Gibson. I love this picture which was a finalist in the ‘Spirit’ category at the Red Bull Illume Image Quest photo competition.

The Importance Of Cultural Understanding In Business

Inspired by the traditional tattoos of Fiji, Samoa and New Zealand, this product was soon scrutinised and considered to be a violation of the indigenous people of the Pacific.

The Bastardisation of the Entrepreneur-in-Residence

Babbling VC

After exiting (and deciding to not spend the rest of their lives on the beach in Fiji) they were looking for something to do. I''ve seen this happening over the years but it seems to have come to a fever pitch in the past year or so. Ever more people I run across or who apply for positions have held the title of "Entrepreneur-in-Residence".better better known as EIR''s. This has become one of the most loaded terms in the startup world.

The Screwy Logic of Crowdfunding and Venture Fund Regulation

This is going to be BIG.

You know, because sometimes startups just simply don't make it [shrug] but you gotta watch out for those financial hucksters who are looking to take your money and run off to kick it in Fiji.

Smart Dashboard Modules: Insightful Dimensions And Best Metrics

Occam's Razor

The Fiji pens look a lot more normal. My last post, perhaps provocatively, called for a reduction of data in executive dashboards (digital, online, offline). More English (IABI, specifically) would lead to a smarter understanding of performance, and of course glory for data practitioners.

Of Sharks and Men

I went on my first shark feeding dive last week in Fiji in the Yasawa Islands. I've been a PADI certified scuba diver since 1991 and just recently obtained my advanced diver certification.  I've dived over 100 times, always in the ocean, and, of course, every diver is fascinated by, if not afraid of, shark encounters.

How About You Take The Day Off

Entrepreneurs-Journey.com by Yaro Starak

I got sick a couple of weeks before leaving Brisbane for Fiji because I had so much to get done before I left. I then got sick again in Fiji, probably as a result of the stress built up and releasing as I finally started traveling. I’m sitting down typing this on my mac air, outside on my verandah (or deck or patio depending where you come from), on a Wednesday afternoon. So far today I’ve done two “tasks&# that you would call work.

What living in different countries has taught me about life (and work)

Austin Startup

Over the next 6 months, I traveled to various parts of the country and abroad to countries like Fiji, Bali, and New Zealand, where I was captivated by the natural beauty of the region. Lately, I’ve been feeling uneasy. A sense of staleness.

Great business model

BeyondVC

Our “secret sauce” will be the label – yes, it will be our company name and logo that will differentiate our product from Evian, Vasa, Fiji, San Pelegrino and those many other indistinct brands. OK, so times have been tough in the IT market over the last couple of years. Luckily, it is starting to get better.

it’s really fun to play with the kids – reminded me of qamea in fiji with volleyball. Recently, I took my 11 year old (Andrew) to Beijing, China for 10 days.

the world without altgate

Altgate

@altgate Startups, Venture Capital & Everything In Between Skip to content Home Furqan Nazeeri (fn@altgate.com) ← Microsoft Buys 37signals For $300 Million The Coming Venture Capital Boom → The World Without Altgate Posted on January 1, 2009 by fnazeeri No, this blog is not going anywhere.  I was just looking at the 2008 Google Analytics data for Altgate.  It is an amazing tool.  I wish I had installed it when I first created this blog, but alas I didn't so I only have data starting in February of last year.  It's mildly disturbing that Google gets to keep all of that data, but I suppose it's a fair trade since the service is free. Overall, 2008 was a great year of growth in traffic.  At the beginning of the year, there were just about 500 unique visitors per month and by December that grew to nearly 10K.  There was a similar growth in terms of RSS subscribers, finishing with about 750 (although Feedburner "lost" about 400 of them this morning which I assume will be "found" tomorrow). One metric that jumped out at me is the global reach.  I was amazed to discover that of some 200-ish countries in the world, there has been at least one visit from each except for just 77.  Sure most of the traffic was from the US (about 73% of total unique visits) but there was also traffic from all kinds of places like India (2.3%), Germany (1.5%), Australia (1.4%), Slovenia (0.7%, who knew!) and Israel (0.6%).  Below is the complete map of the countries still without a visitor to Altgate…if you know someone there send them a referral!  I'll update you all when I get the list of those without Altgate down to a dozen or so.   Afganistan Haiti Rwanda Barbados Honduras Saint Kitts and Nevis Benin   Iraq Saint Lucia Bhutan Kazakhstan Samoa   Bosnia & Herzegovina Kiribati   San Marino Burkina Faso Korea, North Seychelles Burundi   (Urundi) Kyrgyzstan             Sierra Leone Cameroon Laos           Solomon Islands Cape Verde Islands Lesotho   Somalia Central African Republic Liberia Sudan Chad Liechtenstein Suriname    Comoros Maldives Swaziland Côte d'Ivoire Mali Tajikistan Dem. Rep. of Congo Marshall Islands The Gambia Djibouti Mauritania Timor-Leste Dominica Mongolia, Rep. Togo El Salvador Montenegro Tonga (Nukualofa) Equatorial Guinea   Mozambique Turkmenistan Eritrea Myanmar (Burma) Tuvalu Micronesia Namibia Uzbekistan Fiji Nauru Vanuatu   Gabon Niger Vatican City Georgia Palau, Republic of Yemen Guinea   Papua New Guinea Zambia   Guinea–Bissau Paraguay Zimbabwe   Guyana   Republic of Congo Lastly, something that Google Analytics doesn't do is allow you to see where visitors are going when they leave your site.  You can see which page they left from but not where they went.  This feature is rumored to be in development but I couldn't get it even with the custom reporting.  Anyone have tips on this?
