This is a note to myself for my web promotion plans this week:
Most companies would never put up links to their competitors on their web site. It is rarely done. Well, get over it. Every site should have a page which links to all of their competitors, and furthermore, the page should offer some benefit to the end user.
Found at a very credible web promotion source.
This one made my day. And a cup of coffee, of course.

IT industry creates the youngest veterans ever. Here is a quote from a web site that I better not link to:
My name is XXX and I am a 21 year old veteran of the IT industry.
Tim O’Reilly retries the definition of his term “web 2.0”:
Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the internet as platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform. Chief among those rules is this: Build applications that harness network effects to get better the more people use them. (This is what I’ve elsewhere called “harnessing collective intelligence.”)
I have a lot of respect for Tim’s work, but I have to say here that this definition sucks. It’s too long and, well, indefinite. Gladly, Tim quotes Google’s Eric Schmidt with a shorter definition:
Don’t fight the internet.
I like this one better.
We have a new kitchen monster. It makes scary sounds and generates clouds of steam. It is comfortable with connecting deadly components, such as water and electricity. It smells. A lot. And that smell forces us to run, run as fast as we can…
…towards kitchen. To get a fresh cup of filtered coffee.
Yes, we bought a filtered coffee machine. I couldn’t resist the habit of drinking tasty coffee at home, after I’ve been addicted to it in the office, Starbucks, and even at some of my friend’s. Instant coffee just doesn’t cut it anymore, and Cyprus coffee is too tedious to make.
I know that filtered coffee is as bad for me as unfiltered, but I just can’t resist the temptation of hot, tasty, aromatic energy fix. That’s beyond my will power…
