The combination of simplifying the use of RSS, securing and personalizing RSS feeds will change the way financial services companies communicate with their clients.

Email is out, spam has killed it as an effective and reliable way to communicate in the virtual world. RSS is a more reliable and less obtrusive way to keep client up-to-date on their accounts and services.

And mark my words: it will become the answer to identity theft!

Micro Persuasion: Bye Bye Email Marketing, Hello RSS February 5, 2006

I wonder if this would be a viable idea for financial service account servicing. I suspect we would need to wrap some security around RSS (unless there is something out there I don’t know about) and we would need to set-up custome RSS feeds per customer account, but this is very interesting.

Customers will find ways to do things. If you fight the trend, and the value is compelling enough, you will lose.

Create a reasonable and intuitive business model and you will grab market share. Continue fighting and you will lose market share.

Is Apple bringing us a tablet? Damnit, I just abandoned my HP tablet to get the power and grace of the new Mac. New Apple patents. Oh well. Note to self: work harder, make more money, to buy the latest technology!

Sounds very familar to what my boys say: “Daddy works, to make money, to buy me toys 🙂 I wonder where they get it from 😉

Publishing 2.0 » Bubble 2.0 Is a Bubble in Media January 30, 2006

Great commentary on the convergence of Web 2.0 and New Media.

I think this is a significant, yet often missed point, as to why less capital is need in a lot of new Internet focused businesses:

Chris Anderson kicked this off by pointing out that technology adoption is still increasing rapidly and that, with expensive networks already built, it’s much cheaper to build software to capitalize on them — this is precisely why there is a bubble.
