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.

According to The Los Angeles Times sometime in the next two weeks, a converted fishing boat called the Sikuk is due to sail from St. John’s, in Canada’s Newfoundland province, bound for a fjord in Greenland and a rendezvous with an iceberg.

Where most vessels give icebergs a wide berth, the Sikuk intends to sidle up close and — using a giant mechanical claw — begin ripping 1,500-pound bites of ice from floating bergs and depositing them in tanks below deck.

The product of this bizarre harvest is destined to become something called Glace Rare Iceberg Water, and it represents the latest turn in the lifelong obsession of a native Newfoundlander named Ron Stamp. Where others saw hazards to navigation, Stamp has long seen icebergs as objects of wonder and — eventually — as the key to his fortune.

“It is so tasteless that it actually creates a taste. The tastelessness is its own taste,” he said. “It’s like drinking air.”

Gourmet water — at $10 a bottle.
