Goodbye English – Hallo deutsch

Although I prefer writing in English, discussions at the Freigeist Startup Conference in Cologne today have shown me that it will be better to write this blog in German. So I will give German a test spin. I will continue to post most of my web findings on my posterous in English though.

This was a tough decision. However, I believe it is worth a try. The main reasons being:

  • Germans still prefer to read blogs in German and as I’d like to contribute to a German “lean” movement I should write for that audience
  • From time to time I want to post video interviews with various entrepreneurs and web people from Germany, these interviews will be mainly in German

I expect that for May and June I will be testing how it feels to write in German, then I will make a decision. What do you think, should I write this blog in German or English?
