Green marketing
http://blog.futurelab.net/2006/08/ecomagination_etc_green_market.html

Who cares about the echo chamber? Who cares if they like your product or not? What every startup should be thinking about above all else is their market. How are you going to make money? Where is that money going to come from? And do everything in your power to make your product, your marketing communications, your brand, everything about your company, about one thing: Appealing to and serving the market that is going to make you profitable.

Problem websites – Climate Camp


Looking at our logs for VOTV at the climate camp it seams we got almost no traffic from the climate camp website and UK IMC.

Around 5% of traffic came from http://www.climatecamp.org.uk
Only smaller/occasional traffic from IMC http://indymedia.org.uk

Seams strange as the content was very good and have good traffic from other websites?

At the 2007 EG conference, Kevin Kelly shares a fun stat: The World Wide Web, as we know it, is only 5,000 days old. Now, Kelly asks, how can we predict what’s coming in the next 5,000 days?

Kevin Kelly has been publisher of the Whole Earth Review, exec editor at WIRED, founder of visionary nonprofits, and writer on biology and business and “cool tools.”

To The Limit

The revelation that Comcast is putting a number to the ambiguous ‘fair usage’ terms widely used by broadband service provider. It has been set at 250GB per month for residential users.

I make that around 583 hours of streaming at 1Mbps. I would suggest that anyone watching more than this has issues, so this seems a fair level, at least until ‘HD‘ services are made available, then this reduces to around 75 hours, or 2 hours a day.

It’s a fair level, in my opinion and brings clarity to an obfuscated industry. It also throws down the gauntlet to ISPs around the world, who, I suspect, had hoped for a much lower bar to enable them to improve their ARPU.
