Alumni Talks

Friends from HPS-R,

How about making this day more useful by offering school-kids a little insight into our professions
We have film-makers, doctors, bankers, traders, industrialists, entrepreneurs, open-source-contributors, educationalists and of course engineers. 
Talking a bit about where real-life took us after HPS would give school-children unique and memorable accounts that will etch into the young minds. 
We have literally travelled the world, and seen & done amazing things. We, and only we, can provide this unique glimpse in-person, of the breadth of the fascinating world that lays ahead of  those of our kin – the HPS school boy & girl.

The format could be 30-60 min sessions, split into multiple classrooms, in parallel talks. People attend based on their interest. This way max. breadth can be offered. 
If a few projectors could be arranged, visual aids can be used. Tell a story, inspire young minds. 

Of course this is more work that showing up for a good time, but the positive impact on children would be huuuge. There will be many, "wow, I want to be like that, I want to do that" moments. 

Plus, this should give our old teachers a glimpse into what became of us, incase they wonder, to their satisfaction.

Paypal's Ridiculous Business Practices

In Q3-2005 we discovered the power of online sales and started to market Wapsol's products extensively online. Just as importantly we decided to get into the trading business for WLAN accessories (antennae, cable, connectors etc) which entails buying from manufacturers and selling on online-retail. Needless to say ebay's 26 worldwide markets were lucrative points of sales.

We used Paypal for collecting most of payments from customers outside Germany. The numbers ticked up fast and we were hecticly building up infrastructure for shipping, online-support, product-portfolio and payment-systems.

One morning as I woke up in Germany I found that Paypal decided to lock up our account without any specific reason. There were no disputes or complaints from buyers or anything that suggested provocation. They just locked it. In it a few thousands of dollars of cash-flow and the account was listed as a favored payment option for some 100 pending auctions - now customers couldn't pay for …

SnagIT Problem Solved! (Hangs for minutes)
