GapingVoid asks on Twitter “Can anyone tell me, in 140 characters or less, what is “THE BIG IDEA” behind MSFT Silverlight?”Pretty good question I thought. What’s the big idea behind a company like Microsoft, who’s not really well known in the creative/desktop-publishing space, stepping into the highly competitive market of computer animation. A market where […]
Scoble has written some pretty positive stuff about Zude today so I went over to check it out. Zude is supposed to help the peasants build websites – a la MySpace but better – and while the video interviews on Scoble’s site are pretty cool, this is what I got when I signed up to Zude and asked it […]
Check out AllTop.com. Proably the niftiest feed aggregator around at the moment.

His most recent “ClipaSearch Pro” is definitely worth checking […]

This period of time is crucial in the life of an entrepreneur. Not only do decisions taken at this time impact upon the eventual success potential of the start-up, but more importantly they […]
This blog is intended to be a coming-together-place of snippets, thoughts and ideas about entrepreneurship, creativity, and simplicity. The main driving topic will be early-stage entrepreneurship, or in more conventional words, “start-ups”. The terminology is important however because I take ‘early-stage entrepreneurship’ to mean something slightly different from ‘start-up’. Or rather, slightly more focused. Typically, […]
