Greatest USA National Anthems Every Performed

<r>As a boy I was deeply scared but aesthetically enthralled by DDR and USSR national anthems. Swimming championships with all these big women on dope + propaganda. <YOUTUBE id="0yDrtNEr_5M" url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yDrtNEr_5M"><URL url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yDrtNEr_5M">http:/...

In addition, they won WW II in mid XX Century and Finlandized many countries in the Europe and Asia. On the contrary, Communism / Fascism collapsed everywhere. US are even Finland...

My Dot-Coms Anniversaries project on IndieGoGo until 10 Nov

<t>2020-2026 will be hopefully fireworks time, but the venture is going to be operative (and looking for money) from the beginning. The first monthly report, at the end of Jan 2013, will be free in order to show the product and hopefully gain followers. The goal for 2013 is to aggregate a single com...

My Dot-Coms Anniversaries project on IndieGoGo until 10 Nov

<t>I can't beat the corporate and the B2B services, then I am going to target the general public. I would not write here, in a public forum, the format of the monthly report because, yes, that could be stolen easily by competitors. I need to put one issue out and let the product reveal itself. Let's...

My Dot-Coms Anniversaries project on IndieGoGo until 10 Nov

<t>I do not think that a public subscription model (selling the news / reports monthly or at the end of the year) would work in the first-second year of activity. As for the format, .pdf files can be made less prone to piracy but you can't beat them, as every publisher knows. Printed copies could be...

My Dot-Coms Anniversaries project on IndieGoGo until 10 Nov

<t>Ok let's say that we're smart enough to play with the web 2.0 and try some business/venture out there.It's late 2012, the general public must buy your thing, whatever it is, and we do not really need money to start-up but exposure.Therefore, KickStarter or IndieGoGo are the places to go. KickStar...

EURO 2012
