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:
Prismatic is a news aggregation and recommendation engine that generates a personal newsfeed filled with wide-ranging news that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Journalist Melinda Wittstock, harnessing both crowdsourcing and gamification, hopes to create a flourishing source of citizen journalism with her new reporting platform NewsiT .
Something I planned to touch on later, in part two (or three) of my Behind the Curtain series, but that seems very apropos to today, the day after the Boston Marathon bombing, is one of my primary rules for maintaining my sanity: ignore the news.
