Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.


Halo fans can now buy themselves a little piece of history following Microsoft Australia’s decision to auction off a giant Halo 2 billboard.

The advertisement first appeared in Sydney’s Kings Cross area in late 2004, becoming the first non-Coca-Cola ad to feature in the spot for 30 years, and a giant Master Chief lorded it over the local population for five whole months.

Now the billboard’s been split up into eight pieces, and each piece is being auctioned off on eBay – with all proceeds going to charity, namely the Make-A-Wish foundation.

The first auction kicked off today and the bidding is currently up to AU$255, or just under £110. But Xbox bigwig Richard Hirst reckons the sky’s the limit: “We have no idea how high the bidding will go for each piece but I am pretty confident the huge Halo 2 logo piece and the piece featuring Master Chief’s head will be much sought after,â€? he said.
