The New Business Model
In this new era of information, business promote the new (now) standardized and stereotyped model of the cyber “door-to-door” salesman, armed with lap top, cell phone, palm pilot; ready day and night for a next good war against the next competitor’s web page displayed. In this new world of “brief cased guinea pigs” totally “overloaded” by the quantity of digital information, where technology is the weapon against the neighbor, the good old “dollar buck” is the only reward; rewarded and quantified to the best “optimized”, “suited and tied” digital business slave.
a = (1(small business) + 2(good idea) + 3(great potential) + 4 (determination));
factorX = ‘no money’;

Where on this dynamic LCD/CRT two dimensional world that is the modern computer world of today, a “promising” small business can go without the factor x? Without a website, who are you?

Is it the “new business model” that I am looking for? Or I still need to struggle against the stereotyped description as above during weeks and a lot of PDF printed forms? to get…whatever?
Then it all comes together: wOOmba.NET, what about providing one free internet solution that offer everything a small business need to “start up” on the internet, then I start rumbling with my favorite type of “IBM lemmings” to give to thousands of people around the world the opportunity to have access to the proper tools in order to save time and money, and be successful with their small business.
Today wOOmba is a constant growing community born from theses little enterprises that think like us that the internet should be a “free and open minded” business tools for companies. Sometimes the best idea don’t come from giants, but from simple people that sees things differently, and grouped together make something gigantic…
