- Most businesses self destruct
"Yes, you have to pay attention to what's going on out there, but I'd argue you need to pay more attention to what's going on in here. In your own company. In your own products. In yourself and your own vision." A-men.
- Creating Passionate Users: Code like a girl
Cute, mostly serious take on the need for everyone, not just the front end folks, to understand aesthetics.
- Ignore the competition
Damn. :) Best suggestions I've heard in ages - particularly in a world where it's just way too easy to get caught up in Featuritis. Brilliant.
- Michael Geist - Setting the IFPI Record Straight
Wonderful rebuttal of the points in the Anti-Piracy report. But given the ridiculous lengths corporations are willing to go to in order to keep the public stapled to the floor about copyright, I don't have high hopes that this kind of clear thinking will ultimately prevail.
- The Unidyne PC
Amazing casemod fitting a computer into an old microphone. Make sure you take a moment and look at the guy's other casemods too, which ae stunning - I love the Machine Age PC, and I've previously linked to the Humidor.
- Top 10 Dumbest Online Business Ideas That Made It Big Time.
I don't know if I agree with the "dumb" part, but they all are very unusual and likely would have been naysayed to death during the pitch. And yet, success! Just goes to prove it's out there, and there's not just one formula that will work.
- HotWired demo site from 1995 (browse the past)
Awesome. I wish we'd all been better about saving old versions of stuff. As the comment says, so much of pre-archive.org stuff lives only in the memories of those of us surfing with Mosaic. Sigh.
- Mother of Invention Inspires Studio for Kids
Brilliant. Gosh, I love entrepreneurs. Such fun, such good ideas.
- Beta Busts 5 Worth1000 Contest
Full of video games that never got made. Halo Kitty almost made me spit out my drink all over my screen. Too cute.
