In a world of unsure certainty, there is one thing that seems to be getting more and more certain. That would be Drupal. The potential life energy that can be created through designing networked systems using Drupal is unmatched in any other system (except for "life" itself). This is why I have not written any blog posts in the past year or so (because my inner-drive has been over-powered and morphed due to the possibilities that are now available (Thanks to Drupal!) to experience & understand/control. The potentials of life are hidden deep within networked systems. These networked systems are made of a nearly infinite # unique "stimuli" that when combined...Read more

ISyNews.com will soon be a tv news digg rss aggregator mashup! I designed this whole site in 1 day! It works as a great beta version for later mods. Digg.com is a great website in general, but I wanted to develop some smaller communities focused upon certain topics of common interest. All they have to do is choose nearly any rss feed & the ISyNews mashup will split the individual rss entries apart & grab videos (for full-screen embedding on site) + pics (for thumbnails). Marketing.. I Syndicate my Own News (choose your sources wisely) I See News (with your eyes) This IS the News (with popular logic) Is it News? (with finite resolution) etc.ISyNews - I see...Read more
The person-to-person auction format on Ebay.com may be coming to an end, especially if they don't change their rules and regulations to protect the integrity of the marketplace. This is the problem Ebay users are facing across the globe. The increased quality of counterfeits and growing organized piracy organizations bring a very questionable future to Ebay and similar sites. I would just turn Ebay into a Business-To-Business Auction website, where supplies may be purchased in wholesale with long-term guaranteed seller-buyer identification. This would save ebay the troubles of having to become to localized and fragmented, while ensuring future growth. Setting up a...Read more
There is a new product around making all industry sectors buzz. This product is truly a new opportunity that has never seen market truly until the last decade of human history. Domain names are an emerging new product and industry. The marketing strategies of domainers (one who buys and sells domain names) have evolved drastically over the past few years. One key element of marketing domain names that is different than marketing any other legal product, is the inability to be able to directly market (approach them personally) a domain name to a person/ business based upon relatedness of keywords. This can bring about legal cases where a domain name must be forfeited...Read more
3 Types of Real Estate physical real estate Property/ land/ buildings business real estate Wall Street stock digital real estate Domain names physical real estate Property/ land/ buildings are a decent investment, but there are many properties in a geographic vicinity (not truly unique) & monopolizing this type of investment is expensive. The housing-bust across the US makes this option look worse long-term. This market is also tied closely to the US Dollar, since the physical real estate is located within the United States. business real estate The stock market has a very questionable long-term outlook.

Evolution of the Information Economy set free by restriction causing natural dispersion ''ETHICS AND CONCLUSION FOR RESEARCH PAPER ON THE RECENT STUDENT LOAN SCANDALS * '''I wrote the following after reading up some more and trying to reach a conclusion that the teacher hasn't heard before (thus we get a higher grade). Basically these paragraphs say that the current education system is based upon restricting information (with debt burdens) for financial gain by misleading through distracting students with irrelevant inward memorization, while compared to the opposite freedom based self-education system(incubator lifestyle) of learning information which creates...Read more
I found this article on the Digg Founders Profile after signing up today. http://digg.com/political_opinion/The_Information_Economy The Information Economy By Cory Doctorow, in The Guardian. MY RESPONSE TO THE ABOVE ARTICLE (READ ARTICLE IT FIRST!)"The thinking is simple: an information economy must be based on buying and selling information. Therefore, we need policies to make it harder to get access to information unless you've paid for it." I disagree heavily with this idea. Buying & Selling should never be the focus of work, but rather the life experiences. People who just want the $$ will just push their minds to work up until they reached a certain pay...Read more
