I followed Oliver Blanchard’s post to Decisive Flow the other day. They run a web design business specialising in small business. I like the fact that they seek out cool tools to play with and present them in interesting ways — and I especially like the way that they bring new technologies to small business as a way of providing innovation to an often overlooked market.
Today, Natalie linked through to Fleck.com. The article was actually about a more adventurous approach to business travel, but I was interested enough to find out more about the mysterious Fleck. And as I am always up for a bit of adventure myself, I gladly signed on for a dose of web democracy. Not only did I get a nice email welcoming me to the beta program, I was also able to participate in one of the silliest web surveys ever.
But while I don’t yet know whether Fleck is anything more than a bit of fun, it was an amusing detour in an otherwise straight lane sort of day.
Thanks also to Boris from Fleck for the personal email sent via his Blackberry. It is always refreshing to see that the web doesn’t have to be so serious.
