The man behind this program is Buzz Bruggeman. I met Buzz in a Microsoft sponsored Windows Vista and live.com session, during the CES 2006. I had exchanged a few e-mails with him before, but should really had spent more time. Now that he is in Seattle, perhaps during the next MVP Summit when I am there again?
A short definition of Buzz Bruggeman? He's a connector. Just read this interview, published on Naked Conversations, a book by Robert Scoble and Shel Israel.
In the Blogosphere, the Connection King is Buzz Bruggeman, and no one who has met him has ever wondered why he’s called ‘Buzz.’ He works rooms at tech conferences, keeps an ongoing email dialog with scores of people, each of them influential in their own way, totes a bag filled with an array of the latest beta devices and software for distribution to friends and industry insiders. In the case of this book, he connected Microsoft’s Andy Ruff who thought of it and its two authors. He's likely to have been that “informed source” in a recent tech-related article. In short, when you really want to know what’s going on, what’s hot and what’s not in the PC industry, Bruggeman is the go-to guy.
Why am I posting about ActiveWords and Buzz Bruggeman? Because he has just posted on his blog that a version of ActiveWords for Windows Mobile Smartphone is being planned. And the folks at Omega One are probably going to participate in this project:
The other day I met up with Andy Haslam of Omega One. I was introduce to Andy as a guy who we might team up with to build ActiveWords for Windows Mobile 5 smart phones. We had a great time talking, I learned a lot about the Windows Mobile 5 market, and as in all things, good stuff begins with a conversation.
Good stuff: more smarts on a smart device is what we need!
