I think a lot of people are waking up and realizing the internet isn’t a joke. At least it’s not anymore. Create a useful tool or web product and people will be handing over their credit cards faster than you can say e-commerce. You can make a living on the internet, spread a message, find your future spouse, raise 4.2 million dollars worth of presidential campaign money in 24 hours, and stay updated with current events to the second.

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication.
Wikipedia defines Really Simple Syndication as:
“RSS is a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines or podcasts. An RSS document, which is called a “feed,” “web feed,” or “channel,” contains either a summary of content from an associated web site or the full text. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with their favorite web sites in an automated manner that’s easier than checking them manually.”
Basically, RSS is a way for you to...

You may find we don’t write on our blog every day like a lot of other companies. We try to focus on publishing quality posts about a certain area of the market that we feel strongly about. Although we probably should be posting more frequently, most of our time is spent developing web solutions that will be eventually released as open source or as a commercial solution for you and your company.

We released our open source authorization system today. It helps you manage your users on your website, taking care of the following:
- user registration (with optional e-mail verification)
- user login
- lost account retrieval
- password changing
- user session management
- password protecting certain pages or sections of your website
It is built using the CodeIgniter PHP framework so you will need that installed until we port it for general use. Check it out, there’s a fully working online demo and user guide with lots of documentation as well!

This is a jist of what Ed Dale teaches in the thirty day challenge. The process has enabled him to create multi-million dollar businesses online and now he is teaching people like you and me how to do it. After participating in his challenge, I learned that his principals not only apply to finding niche markets, but to business practices overall. After all, the people who benefited the most from the thirty day challenge were the ones who applied the thirty day challenge methods to their existing business. Instead of making $10 in thirty days, the existing businesses made thousands of dollars using...

Facebook is the new Microsoft Windows.
Before my time, Microsoft introduced Windows as a revolutionary new platform for developers make everyone’s lives easier. Apple came out with their aesthetic, remarkably easy interface that made (almost) everyone want a new Mac.
It wasn’t long before these big companies like IBM, Xerox, Microsoft, HP and of course Apple knew what was coming down the train tracks. These revolutionary new personal computers were going to change everyone’s life.
And they did. Bill Gates became the richest man in the world and Steve Jobs continues to lead...

We launched a great new web2.0 service the other day called ListRankr. ListRankr allows you to make lists about anything. For example, if you want to find some great Italian restaurants in your local area, you can go to ListRankr and view the list of local restaurants, in order of people’s preference. Users can vote restaurants up or down, mark their favorite (which counts as an extra vote), and read reviews about every restaurant in the list.
If the list doesn’t exist, create it! Then invite your friends to review and rank your list.
You can make a list for pretty much everything....

Need a website soon and don’t want to explore XHTML and CSS? Use this cool new online webpage designer I found the other day. Learning how to create website pages is a cinch with the help of WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors like Dreamweaver, only this webpage designer is web-based (cross-platform) and won’t cost you a penny! Plus, they were named one of the top 50 websites in 2007 by Time magazine.
If you go to www.weebly.com and sign up with your username and email you can start building your website in seconds. It uses a pretty AJAX interface, so that means you need...

First, you will need a text editor such as TextMate for Mac, Notepad or PHP Web Designer 2007 for PC. There are also two things you must learn after you read up on how to design a website. Those are:
These two components are essential to building a solid website. If you build a large business website without knowing XHTML and CSS, you will be banging your head on the desk from troubles with cross-browser compatibility, search engine optimization, maintainability and more later down the road. If you need help learning XHTML and CSS, you can visit W3Schools or search for...
