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 Boy Scouts of America do good, we all know that. And now they do invention.

According to Fast Company, the 100-year-old organization has teamed up with MIT’s Lemelson program, founded by the father of modern invention in America, Jerome H. Lemelson, to provide a new merit badge: that of invention.

Aside from defining what patent infringement and intellectual property is, there’s the practical aspect to the test, where scouts are expected to build a clay model and then a working prototype of their invention.
