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:
Every now and then, a group of former PayPal employees get together to
catch up on life and work. It might be at a backyard barbecue, a
birthday celebration at a classy San Francisco restaurant or a simple
late-night reunion at someone’s house.
Almost inevitably, the conversation turns to business, and soon enough,
a new start-up is born or has found a financial backer. This is what
happened last year with YouTube, the Web video company that Google has
agreed to acquire for $1.65 billion. It also happened the year before
with Yelp, whose Web site lets users review doctors, dry cleaners and
other local services.
