This is the first post of the new year, and we’ve got some exciting news…
Pledge your support
As promised, we’re continuing development of the BCmoney MobileTV platform and concept, only under a new domain. We can’t give too many specific details, but we can say that we’ll be integrating some of the best open web projects out there into the new platform.
It will be built on the following three core technologies:
- Content Aggregation & Discovery service (ActivityStreams + oEmbed)
- Trusted Recommendation Engine (WebID + OpenRecommender)
- Digital Cash Micropayments (BitCoin + PaySwarm)
One of the most exciting topics on our radar for 2011 is “Crowdfunding“, or the financing of interesting and innovative projects by the community, rather than through a single investment firm or bank loan. Speaking of interesting projects, one content aggregation service we’ll be implementing in the new BCmoney will be OMP3. Also sure to deliver interesting innovations in mobile web application development will be jQuery Mobile.
Stay tuned, its sure to be an exciting year!

- Distinguish Between Venture Debt and Venture Capital

- Is Google Making It Harder To Run A Successful Business Online?
Ok, despite similar accusations of monopoly attempts and/or info theft from the likes of Washington Post, NY Times, Reuters, TechCrunch, ZDnet and others; Google-bashing seems like the thing to do. I'm certainly guilty of writing yet another sensationalist and wildly accusing title pitting Google's ever-encroaching yet seemingly undefined business model, against their supposedly well-defined "don't...

Transactions which are usually smaller and...

- Currency Codes dropdown and SQL table
I always find it useful to share publicly those tasks I find myself carrying out many many times, almost robotically. In fact, I'd like for there to be a worker bot (soft AI not hard, and software not hard... we don't need a Terminator style takeover) to do my dirty work for me.
Well, until such...
