As some of my regular readers might know, I find it useful to 'pause for station identification' so that it's clear who I am and what I do.
We be jammin'
My name is Charlie Schick, I am a product manager for Ovi.com, by Nokia (see details for more).
For the past few years I have used this site mostly to philosophize on the fusion of Internet and mobile devices. Hopelessly peripatetic, my thoughts and actions have lately been wandering farther afield (sorry folks) ranging from biomedicine, molecular manipulations, indiscriminate writing, the long now and a post-electronic age, various forms of performances thespian and corporate, and forcing myself to be more creative and do the story telling I want to do.
In the past, I've tried to not put too much of this other stuff here on this site. But, as I've hinted a few times in the last few months, I expect my writing and links of interest (found in my side bar) to start reflecting these interests.
As I've said before, thanks for reading my stuff. That so many keep coming back to this site, suggest that I do have something of value to you all. I hope that does not change as I drift from the topics that originally brought us together.
Standard Disclaimer (riffing off of Cringley)
Everything I write here on this site is an expression of my own opinions, NOT of my employer, Nokia. If these were the opinions of Nokia, the site would be called 'Nokia something' and, for sure, the writing and design would be much more professional. Likewise, I am an intensely trained professional writer (heh), so don't expect to find any confidential secret corporate mumbo-jumbo being revealed here. Everything I write here is public info or readily found via any decent search engine or easily deduced by someone who has an understanding of the industry.
On the flip side, this is my personal site. Please don’t flood me with ideas that you think Nokia might be interested in. Better to leave a comment or trackback relevant to one of my posts (emphasis: relevant). Or go visit one of the Nokia blogs.
