Online Advertising and the New Business Model, Revenue Model Paradigm Thingy

  I enjoyed this column by Bill Thompson on the BBC News web-site because it questions, and begins to through a bit of light on something with which I’ve been puzzling for some time.  If increasingly clever on-line advertising is going to fund so much of the web and software in general in the future […]

A-Wooooooo

It was lunch-time and there I was, walking through the streets of Soho in the rain.  So what was to be done but go looking for the place called Lee Ho Fooks … where I got a big dish of Beef Chow Mein. No little old ladies reported mutilated…though perhaps the chef should have been. […]

Creativity, The Life Path and the "Sex & Cash Theory"
