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.

The New Jersey laboratory where Thomas Edison perfected some of his most famous inventions is reopening with a wealth of restored material.

The Thomas Edison National Historical Park has undergone a six-year, $13 million overhaul.

Edison built the lab and other buildings in West Orange in 1887 and worked there until his death in 1931. He used the lab to develop and mass produce inventions such as the phonograph and movie camera.

Many artifacts that were locked away or were in disrepair have been restored and will be displayed, including a Steinway piano.

There’s also a research wing that has been returned from the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich., where it was moved in the 1940s.

The reopening is scheduled for Oct. 10.
