I talk with my guys at 9rules a lot about the big picture. Right now many people see 9rules as a blog network, however we never really saw it as that even when we dreamed the idea up about one year ago. We’re moving our way towards building a community of the most brilliant people on the web — whether they’re businesswomen, designers, developers, entrepreneurs, technologists, scientists, or anyone else. Forget the concept of just a blog network, 9rules is now a place that can build on the combined talents of our massive community. Anyway, back to the big picture 🙂
Sometimes I wish I had a linklog where I could post links and small bits of commentary, but because I don’t my 3 readers will have to suffer through this mishmash of the latest tech news in a regular blog entry 🙂
I was watching TV tonight and kept seeing funny ads for a service called Vongo. The ads were pretty nebulous, so after the movie I tried visiting their website:
Not a browser failure, but an OS FAILURE! Kinda odd too, considering they stuck “Mac OS X” in the right hand “Minimum System Requirements” column. There’s a little red circle next to Mac OS X though, but still, the name of the column shouldn’t be contradictory to what their error message is saying. I’m guessing that Vongo uses ActiveX…. any Windows Vongo users out there know what’s up?
“Building to flip” is a term that means that you’d build a company, product, or service specifically with the intent to sell it. This strategy is not often the best strategy, since you remove customer from the equation and simply try to make the service attractive to prospective buyers. Good for you, bad for all of us. But is this always the case?
