I wrote about this a few months back in "3 Things Microsoft needs for a Surface Phone launch"
The only surprise is that this does not seem to be built by Foxxconn ... the firm Microsoft sold off the feature phone capabilities too. Perhaps they just haven't disclosed that yet.
There is still a LOT of money in the untapped masses for mobile phones --- both smart and dumb.
I know Microsoft's will be there.
You can still make it ... details are here.
Humans have finally unlocked this incredible achievement:
We now have an attention span shorter than a goldfish.
I got to talking about this at the #LIFTSocial event yesterday and figured I'd reprise this post for those that wanted to see it.
Knack has offered this for ALL orders placed before Sept 30th.
Just use this discount code: Shuey25
Note: I'm only helping a local Seattle startup here.
More details can be found in this post I wrote about the new biz Laura Jennings has started. Take your 25% discount ... a few times before the end of the month. I think you'll like what you see.
How are you standing out in your career?
This Thursday is the Fall Kick Off meeting of the IAMCP Seattle --- Join Us!
If you are a Microsoft partner you need to be here.
#IAMCP #IAMCPWIT #STEM #STEMWIT
Also, take advantage of a 25% discount they provided thru Sept. See the post for details.
Thanks to Kirsten Andresen for the introduction to Laura and the Knack team. I really enjoyed learning about the business and was pleasantly surprised to see and hear that there is a strong intention to source locally.
As I mentioned in the post ... I was happy to hear the team has already discovered local talent Strideline for their unique and creative socks.
Here are a few on my thoughts.
Do you have a Knack for style?

I helped found and am on the board of the Social Media Club Seattle. I have helped organize the Twestival Seattle events and I spend a lot of time thinking about how Social affects Businesses and vice-versa.
I am a veteran of the Enterprise Content Management industry. Over the past 20 years I have worked with customers and partners around the world to design, develop and deploy solutions that exactly meet their needs. Currently I am the Director of Strategic Alliances at Winshuttle where we help optimize complex business processes in SAP and Microsoft SharePoint. I have also worked for Microsoft, Kodak, FileNet (IBM), K2, Captaris, Open Text, and Kofax. I travel a lot, as well as speak and write about ECM and the intersection of Social, Mobile and Cloud Computing and how companies are putting these tools to work in their businesses.
In my spare time I like to get out and ride my Mtn Bike, Wake Surf, ride my Stand Up Paddle (SUP) board, and spend time watching and helping our kids in all of their endeavors.
