Pearl Seigel – Digital Nomad Extraordinaire

Hi there, by way of introduction, I’m: Pearl Seigel – Digital Nomad Extraordinaire

At this point my right brain screams for attention … my left brain the logical analytical (sometimes boring) brain points out:

Three Words … Digital Nomad Extraordinaire … address each one separately and methodically define, explain etc

As often is the case my right brain wins hands down … lets focus on “Extraordinaire”

The Free Dictionary throws some light on the word “Extraordinaire” …

Adj. 1. extraordinaire – extraordinary in a particular capacity; “a woodworker extraordinaire”; “a self-starter extraordinaire”

extraordinary – beyond what is ordinary or usual; highly unusual or exceptional or remarkable; “extraordinary authority”; “an extraordinary achievement”; “her extraordinary beauty”; “enjoyed extraordinary popularity”; “an extraordinary capacity for work”; “an extraordinary session of the legislature”

Well, I am certainly extraordinary … In many ways!!

There’s my mode of transport, take a look:

 Moving on to the Digital Nomad part. I was one of the first people to attend the University of Cape Town’s Business School’s Nomadic Marketing course

 It was there that I met Dave Duarte Program Director of the Nomadic Marketing and a lecturer for UCT GBS Executive MBA

Also Maximilian Kaizen and the Ogilvy Digital marketing crowd

It was there that I learnt about wikis, blogs, facebook, twitter, Creative Commons and more. Being an early adopter espciall in the areas of techno-toys … I was in right brain heaven!

I have been interrupted … a message from Mars … “I never could stand rocket” .

To clarify my early adoption policy does not include taking a rocket to mars

Rocket to Mars

Rocket to Mars

After that rude interruption back to the Nomadic Marketing, learning about Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) was part of Dave Duarte’s mission … a mission he really achieved, the Google rankings say it all, click this link and you will see that Dave Duarte’s 2008,features before the UCT GBS Bizcommunity search result and we all know the nimber of pages Bizcommunities avvertising spend can multiply

The digital part and here I wish all software, includind WordPress would have spellcheck … blogging as one deperatelly dyslexic blogger … I joke not!!

Running out of time … I wonder whether I can still catch that Rocket to Mars!!!
