I?ve always been a skeptic when it comes to technology, especially computers and the Information Age. I used to think it was crazy how people would put their total faith into a machine, some even more so than in their faith in humanity. Human beings are flawed, imperfect creatures. I say this in a positive way because if humanity were completely positive and perfect we would have nothing to learn, and life would lose its vitality and mystery.

Computers are not infallible pieces of nature?s perfection Continue reading →

and always will be. While there are many scams designed only to take
your hard earned money there are also many legitimate home business
opportunities for entrepreneurs who want to earn extra money working at home.
The problem has always been that it is difficult to get funding for a
home business and if you do not have the necessary funds for initial
inventory, equipment, marketing and promotion it can be almost impossible
to get your business off the ground. The Internet has changed all of that.

The world is on the brink of a phone revolution, with a growing number of people cutting their telecom bills by making free calls via the World Wide Web.
A recent sign of this is that EBay, the online auction website, is so sure the idea will catch on, that it has paid $4.1 billion for the Internet Phone firm Skype Technologies.
Shortly all the millions of people who buy and sell goods on eBay will be able to use Skype’s software, to talk to each other free and also make cut price calls to other landlines and cell phones.
Internet Phone services such as Skype are specially valuable for people who make a great deal of international telephone calls, as even these are free as long as both caller and receiver use the Skype software Continue reading →
