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.

Bloomberg Businessweek is reporting that the president could order emergency measures to combat cyber attacks under legislation introduced by three senators who say the Internet has unleashed a new breed of cyber-terrorists.

Under the legislation, the president’s specific powers would be developed with companies and wouldn’t allow the government to take over private networks or give it more surveillance authority, the lawmakers said.

“The Internet can also be a dangerous place with electronic pipelines that run directly into everything from our personal bank accounts to key infrastructure to government and industrial secrets,” Joseph Lieberman, a Connecticut independent who heads the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said at a news conference.

“We cannot wait for a cyber 9/11,” Republican Susan Collins of Maine said.

Lawmakers are trying to craft legislation to boost U.S. cyber-security following reports of hacked government computer systems and Mountain View, California-based Google Inc.’s January threat to leave China in the wake of a computer attack.
