Business Model Alchemist

As business people we have a powerful tool in our hands: the knowledge of how to build, run, and manage businesses. Let us be ambitious and put that knowledge to work for things that really matter. But please don’t get me wrong. I’m not talking about so-called “social corporate responsibility”. Nor am I talking about “pro bono work” for social projects, or about “giving back”, a phrase that so many successful business people like to use. No, what I am talking about is the ambition to build sustainable business models that have a social, environmental and/or development impact ...

The original founder of Enix, Yasuhiro Fukushima , is currently the largest shareholder of the corporation. The company also owns Taito Corporation and Square Enix Europe
Sharpening the Saw for 2010
There are two resources that I would like to recommend that provide some insight on how to prepare for what looks like another difficult year in 2010.  One has an unconventional title and the other is unconventional in almost every way you can think of, but both offer important ways to help entrepreneurs sharpen their saws.  Due to the worries and challenges of the prolonged recession, consumers are looking things that create better value for their spending.  The first resource is a book looks at how to create better value through customer service.  Barry Moltz and Mary Jane Grinstead's book B-A-M!: ... market research, surveys and trends
SBS - Social Bookmarking Soulmate
I am a firm believer that every person has not just one "soul mate," but that it is simply about being at the right place at the right time. In perusing, I think I may have already found not one, but three, social bookmarking soulmates. In this blog I will just profile Flaithbhertach, since he [let's just say it's a he] was at the right place at the right time, the first one I stumbled upon. After going through 13 pages of Flaithbhertach 's bookmarks, I felt that we had a pretty strong connection - I had read many of the articles that he bookmarked, was familiar with many of the online music ... market research, surveys and trends


A Reuters Alchemist at Work in Colombia (Updated) | Political ...
On Monday, Colombians reported a thick, acrid smoke in the skies above Bogota and the pollutants have been analysed in a Caracas laboratory. On the condition of anonymity, sources in Caracas told us that gas samples were secretly captured by a Venezuelan aircraft that flew low over the city, disguised as a U.S. airplane (not an uncommon sight in Colombian skies). The Colombian government learned the true identity of the aircraft hours later and President Alvaro Uribe charged Venezuela with a violation of Colombian air space. The gas samples taken revealed toxic levels of mercury, sulfide, lead ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Hey, Answerman! DMCA MSRP WTF
any questions about scanlations this week! I think the Answerfans segment got it out of everybody's system, thankfully. At least, probably until something else newsworthy happens again and people start running around like extremely nerdy chickens with their heads cut off. But for now, at least, I've got other pressing issues at hand: Why do you think Minami-ke has yet to be licensed in the US? It has had 4 seasons in Japan, so we know its popular. It is similar to Azumanga Daioh , which I think did very well here in the USA (least I know several people who own the DVDs). It may more or less fall in to the moe genre, so ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
iPad - the end of our world as we know it?
Did the earth move for you? If the news is any guide, we experienced an iTremor over the past few weeks. Reams and reams of coverage focusing on the launch of a couple of consumer items. Yes sir, Apple reamed us good and proper.  As someone with mouths to feed, it's the iPad that's gotten my hackles up most. Specifically, the media's euphoric stampede into Apple's oily embrace - in the fervent hope the iPad will save newspapers and magazines. Only last week, Mathias Dopfner, head of German media house Axel Springer (publishers of Die Welt and one of the largest newspaper publishing companies in Europe), was market trends, news research and surveys resources
