Heftmaid, October, 2010 They were selling Mornflakes in the tiny post-office shop in the hamlet where I was staying in Devon, a few weeks ago. Itÿs the only time Iÿve ever seen them for sale anywhere. I surmised from this that the money Mornflakes had spent on getting Minciu Sodas to do itÿs PR was very well spent, and that they would surely be rivalling Coca-Cola and Nike in brand recognition stakes soon. After all, I recognised them.
Leon Benjamin, February 14, 2010 We partnered with a group of independent thinkers based in Lithuania, Minciu Sodas led by Andrius Kulikauskas. This network spans many continents and countries. For a modest fee Minciu Sodas harnessed the individuals in its network to ... Iÿve been working in the online community space since 2001. In that time, Iÿve never seen such a successful approach to seeding and community outreach. Nor have I seen a report as comprehensive as this.
Ugo Merkli, February 6, 2011 I love the sketch by Kulikauskas, very helpful and self explanatory.
Pamela McLean, Dadamac, January, 2011 ... I thrived in Minciu Sodas and look back on my time there as my online equivalent of studying for a higher degree - non-accredited of course. Over the years I have got to know Andrius much better, online and face to face, usually being very appreciative of his originality and focus (and sometimes, I confess, being infuriated by what I see as the "over-development of these strengths" from originality into excessive-non-conformity and from focus into apparent-inability-to-listen-to-my-viewpoint-if-it-conflicts-with-his-own.) I include this negative observation because people who know us know that we are not always in agreement and may think I am not sincere if I only say postitive things - but I am very sincrere in all the positive things that I say. My life is immeasurably richer for knowing Andrius. Like many of his friends and contacts in Minciu Sodas, I have gained new ideas, new knowledge, new insights and so much more including many highly valued friendships. This happened as I moved forward in Minciu Sodas, exploring answers to my question, thanks to his interest and support. In my experience Andrius is a man of great intelligence, creativity, open-ness, integrity and vision. As I see it he pushes the boundaries of all kinds of ideas, many that I agree with in theory (as ideals and as future possibilities that I am working towards). However he lives out his ideas in practice. and in the present to the best of his abilities. I believe that many of the ideas and strategies that he has pioneered will become mainstream (just as it seems the ideas of the "health-food cranks" of the 60's have helped to influence the now commonly available vegetarian and organic options in restaurants and supermarkets). In my experience Andrius really does walk his talk - which is rare - and not necessarily comfortable (for him, or for others) - but is greatly to be valued. I am glad to know him.
Jerry Michalski, Sociate, May 9, 2010 We talk a bunch about openness and transparency, but I donÿt know anyone who walks that talk more than my friend Andrius Kulikauskas.
