Swallowing The WorldWideWeb


After having written about curious-, copying-, art- and franchising online business ideas as well as about how to find an online business idea, I finally come to an end by adding a post about online acquisitions. Acquisitions occur when one company buys another one and in fact, this happens a lot in case of online ventures. Google for example, since its foundation in 1998, has acquired the astonishing number of 98 companies and yet there is no end in sight.

But why is it worth doing and who profits? Will there be only one firm left in the future that rules the entire vastness of the internet? Continue reading


One day in my life!? – in retrospect

One day without modern communication systems. Sounds easy. Just one day. One little day. Can’t be that hard, right?


During this blog post I want to report about my self-experiment, which I announced 2 weeks ago  in my 3rd blog post (One day in my life!?). Why should you read my post? Nothing new? It is all been done before? Maybe you are right BUT:

Same, same… but different!?

Take a Look around

Doesn’t matter which situation in your life, there were moments you thought: “That could have been my idea”, “I wanna have that as well” or even “I’m gonna pretend as if it were mine.” For sure there were. Referring to my last post many founders face a lack of creativity, but circumvent this problem by stealing more or less the laurels of others. Copying is sometimes, if done properly and not in the frame of dissertations, an effective way to climb the economic Mount Everest. Can this also be said about internet phenomenons? Continue reading

I watch, you tube!

24hours a day. 7 days a week. 12 months a year. Result 31st december: Didn’t stop smoking, didn’t meet future husband, didn’t learn how to do the two finger whistle. DAMN IT!

You know, I started to take pictures and collect them in a nice photo album when I was 12 years old. Until today I filled 4 books with hundreds of memories, stories and faces. I even wrote a journal for some years and tried hard to keep track of what I experienced, saw and felt. Now the part for all the hobby psychologists: What the heck was I trying to catch there?!?
Anyway – guess facebook is the solution for fools like me with the eternal desire to remember, look back and live their memories. BUT STOP – no, this won’t be another post about facebook. Keep on reading and E-LEARN dear fellows:

I like.

As quite everyone seems to be interested in THE social network facebook I cannot avoid to write my third post about this topic again (my first post has already consisted of the ‘Internet’s gold child’). It is tracking me every day, every second, always. I can’t get it out of my head and this makes me crazy. I’m always thinking: A new facebook related post again? Is there no other interesting topic to write about? Are we all uncreative bloggers? Facebook here, facebook there, facebook everywhere?? Aaaargh. That sucks.

BUT. I was searching about different kinds of customer targeting, search engine optimizing (SEO), online marketing etc. and everything, really everything was leading me to articles, texts and posts containing facebook. Continue reading

One day in my life!?

My first two blog posts dealt with procrastination and how modern technologies and communication systems contribute to it. Thinking that issue over and over again my thoughts lead to following questions:

How would it be to life one day without modern communication systems?

Is it even possible to banish them out of my life?

Do I really need them and why do they seem to have such an essential meaning in today’s society?

And most important: How would I feel during that day? Lost or maybe relieved?

From that moment on, I wanted answers to these questions and by now I am getting mentally prepared for that day which will be during the next week where I will not use communication technologies. Continue reading

Facebook Addiction?

First of all, I have to say that this is my first real blogging experience. Last semester I have already created a kind of blog for our “Introduction to Business Application Systems” course, but I would not describe that what we have done as ‘real blogging’. It was not more than annoying recording of our assignments without any background or ulterior motive.

Now, it has another importance for me- my increasing interest in all different kinds of information. I want to learn, see, hear and feel so much more and what could help me better than finding interesting things posted by my group members, my fellow students or other people all over the world?

I want to share my ideas and information. I want everybody to have the possibility to read things that are important for me. I want to build a connection to people who are commenting my posts. I want to blog. Blogging for better communication and connection. But does this have any impact on my health…?


My whole day is based on communicating via Facebook, email or Skype. I really have to question myself if I will suffer from the “Facebook-Addiction in the future? 

I cannot wait to write my friends, to inform them, to organize meetings or parties via facebook. I want to look at new pictures and before I am going to bed I have to check whether I have new messages and notifications or not.

As I searched for the term “facebook addiction” I found really interesting forums where you can read many strategies to deal with your “disease”  and how you can overcome it. You should be able to determine your utilize of facebook, you should be able to be rational, to find alternatives, to set limits or to change you whole lifestyle.

But how do you know that you are suffering from the facebook addiction?

To answer this question I found a very clarifying video on youtube!

So, is the facebook addiction officially approved? As far as I found out- it is not. You cannot get a sick note because your live is contingent on stalking facebook profiles…

Lucky me! 

After watching the video and taking stock of myself I can becalmed state that I have some first beginnings but I am not (yet!) suffering from the facebook addiction.

So, be aware and do not change your profile picture over and over and over again :)
