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.

Economic Times:

For over 10 years, an itch on his nose had been annoying Henry Evans. Many take such basic functions for granted, but not Evans. When he was 40, a stroke left him paralysed and mute. He can only move his head and partially move one finger.

Evans could finally scratch that itch last year, and what’s more, even shave, with the help of PR2, his personal robotic helper. The robot is now starting to help Evans around the house, organising and fetching things.

The ultimate goal of this project – led by Georgia Tech and PR2’s Silicon Valley-based maker Willow Garage — is to help the elderly live independently. Our world is, after all, ageing rapidly, primarily due to increased lifespans and declining fertility rates.
