Am I The Only One? No really

Reality Blogging?

I See A Story Everywhere, In Everything
I See A Story Everywhere, In Everything

Last week I posted about an entrepreneurial idea.

What if everything you did could be considered a business expense?

My Accountant friend looked at me, while we were jogging, as if I had lost my mind.

I can’t expense a hair cut, but what if the whole experience was part of some bigger picture? A look at an ordinary life, trying to change the world, one blog post at a time?

People said Napster’s business model would fail, plus, they said, it was illegal.

Anyone subscribe to Napster or Rhapsody music service?

Just because no one has done it and everyone says it’s not legal, doesn’t mean the world (or one lone soul) isn’t ready to embrace it.

No, Seriously, I Do
No, Seriously, I Do

Think Like a Failure?

Cybrarian.  Never heard of this person, probably.  No worries.  I had never heard of it until this month.

Librarian.  Everyone’s heard of this person, probably.  The librarian is in charge of the library – the place where books are kept.

How many of you can see it coming?  The day when books will be relics on display in museums. It may not happen in the next 10-20 years, but it will happen.  And it may even happen sooner.

The music industry never saw it coming. They should have led the revolution, instead, they were victims of it.

Free music file sharing over the Internet.  Preposterous!  Exactly.

Cybrarians can see it coming.  Amazon’s Kindle is the first ripple of the cybrarian tsunami.

Surf’s up, dude.  Catch a (digital) wave.

Speaking Of Napster…

A few hours ago, I posted below about Seth Godin being someone I think everyone should be paying attention to.

And in this morning’s post (below), Napster was used as an example of how a time-tested, dominating, business model was dismantled by a few forward-thinking people.

Click here if you have any sense at all.  This further illustrates the importance of benchmarking, of surveying the landscape, of constantly checking the radar screen.

If Seth Godin’s blog post, “Less Than Zero” doesn’t make your head spin, go buy some WD-40.

Seth Goden and 37signals

Seth Godin is like a new BFF.  Why?  Because if I…..

If I have to explain it to you, you may not get it.  Click here to go to his blog.  Highly recommend you read Seth Godin’s blog every day. It’s simple to subscribe to it and you can have it waiting in your in box each morning.

But maybe you’d rather just stick with a plan that’s certain to be safe.

Anyone here remember how Napster destroyed the Music Industry’s decade-old business model?  The Internet is changing all the rules.

Next on deck, 37signals.

Here’s my prediction, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you’ll most likely become a victim of a Napster-like competitor.

Or, you could just stick your head in the sand.
