Web Services can be more adaptable but with a price.
Is that price worth it?"
In the recently published The State of the Live Web April 2007, Sifry reports that the number of blogs in the top 100 popular sites has risen to 22, compared to 16 in Q3 2006.
Sifry wrote that this is "further evidence of the continuing maturation of the Blogosphere. Blogs continue to become more and more viable news and information outlets."
But he would say that wouldn't he??
Three young entrepreneurs aim to raise capital for business and change the country while doing it.
April 4 2007: 1:32 PM EDT
Vancouver, WA- Three young entrepreneurs searching for capital for their startup business are taking a unique approach to fund raising, they are calling on all Americans to help them out. What does America get in exchange? The opportunity to write a book detailing what Americans want to see changed in America. Who will get that book? The president of the United States, and the candidates for the 2008 race.
Jason Timm, Nick Ewing, and Michael Brown of Vancouver, Washington have launched HelpWithChange.com. For a one dollar donation every American is invited to contribute what they want to see changed in America. Everyone is then able to vote on the ideas for change they most agree with. The top suggestions for change as voted on will then be included in the book which will be delivered to the next president of the United States on his or her inauguration day.
The site which was launched on April 4th will be taking suggestions for change, and the spare pocket change that goes with them for the next three months. The top ideas for change will be selected on July 4th.
When asked what inspired them to do this the trio replied "We want to put ourselves in a position to have our American dream come true, that being the birth of our business. Who better to include in that process than America itself?"
Jason, Nick, and Michael all cite the lack of anyone wanting to listen these days as a driving reason behind this project.
"It takes so much effort to get someone to hear what your business idea is, and to have them show interest in funding you", Michael states. "The same seems to go for the American people as well, sometimes they just feel like their concerns fall on deaf ears at the political level."
