Thor was the first to (legally) put music on the mobile phone and the first to integrate mobile music in a social network (Microsoft IM) with partners Sony Music (then BMG) and Microsoft MSN back in June 2004.
From acquiring 85 000 subscribers in a month when launching music to mobile phones to today’s complex social media, Inbound Marketing and SEO – he believes in a programmic approach to digital communication.
After discovering Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) 3 years ago – Thor is convinced that anything that requires paper based proof today will be digitalized with DLT in the (near) future.
