I just read a rather depressing piece of information: for the first half of 2010 the rate of new business start-ups was the lowest it's been in 24 years. According to a blog post for the Wall Street Journal "the 3.4% first-quarter start-up rate and the 3.9% in the second quarter mark the lowest first-half since (executive coaching firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas) started recording data in 1986." The reason for such a dramatic decrease from last year is less than obvious Read More
I read yesterday that the U.S. Postal Service wants to increase its rates. Not only are they seeking to increase the cost of stamps by 2 cents, but they also want a 5.6% increase in standard mail rates. What justification do they use for these proposed price increases? They need money.. Read More

It's been really difficult to find time to blog for the last few weeks, and I have a feeling it's going to get worse before it gets better. I'm taking a couple of evening classes that have turned out to be more time consuming than I expected, plus I've taken on a slightly larger role at work. Add in a little time for exercise (including the mountain bike I bought recently), and a very little time for relaxation, and I'm spent! I definitely enjoy blogging, especially when inspiration strikes, but lately it seems like I've been rushing through it so I can move on to the many other things I need to accomplish.. Read More

It looks like Yahoo! agrees that location-based media has great potential.. Read More
