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 History of Social Collaboration

A generation ago, only a select few could send messages “online.” (And those messages consisted primarily of light green text on a black screen.) Today, a short forty years later, no longer do people need to wait for the morning paper, or for the late night news to find out what is happening in the world because the same basic technology that allowed those first green messages to grace the screen have now evolved to a point that almost everyone on the planet has the internet in their pocket and immediate access to all of their friends, colleagues and news via Twitter and Facebook.
