This is the site Ideablob mentioned in the Firing Up FeedBurner post . According to that post, the del.icio.us posting of Ideablob had received 19 clicks which was just one below first place position. As of today it has received 51 clicks, more than twice of the former first place.
The are no illusions as to the impact of this weblog on the world of Web 2.o, so if it is the best used site for this weblog it is because of its own usefulness and popularity. I can only imagine what it is doing at other sites. It also supports Barger's point .
1. A true weblog is a log of all the URLs you want to save or share. (So del.icio.us is actually better for blogging than blogger.com.)
It also not only provides funding for business oriented entrepreneurial efforts but social-entrepreneurial efforts as well as the following post from Entrepreneurial Mind demonstrates.
The Entrepreneurial Mind: Social Enterprise Latest Ideablob WinnerA social enterprise is the latest monthly $10,000 Ideablob winner.
Marci Bossow Schankweiler of North Wales, PA is President and founder of Crossing the Finish Line (CFL), a Blue Bell, PA-based non-profit organization that provides excursions for young adult cancer patients and their families. Schankweiler founded CFL after her first husband passed away from cancer at the age of 30. She plans to use the prize money to help fund a home for cancer patients near Orlando, FL.
This also came from Entrepreneurial Mind
One of our students here at Belmont is a finalist for this round of ideablob.com voting. If you haven't been to the site, think of it as a monthly American Idol for business ideas with voting taking place at the website.
Andy Tabar is one of our student practicing entrepreneurs trying to build his web-based business. It is easy to vote. Just go to the ideablob.com website and register. After you have go back to the main page for ideablob.com and vote for Andy's entry "Expand my global tech company" idea. Please go to ideablob.com and vote for Andy!!
So, since I am getting a number of hits on this I am going to post Entrepreneurial Mind post on del.icio.us to see if I can't get at least a couple of vote for Andy. Supposedly voting is open to January 7 though it may be too late.
But it is not really that simple
Also looks like a great idea.
Utilizing newest neuro-science/mind-body medicine/quantum physics, I would present a non-invasive, cutting-edge complementary therapy for stroke patients.
Data destroyed by stroke, exists in other areas of the brain in different forms. By contacting parts of the brain previously less directly employed, but still connected to stored data, we reach out to old functions by recognition of past action, impression, perception and emotion. Once accessed, new pathways are created to retrieve information.
Stimulation by light/touch/smell/laughter/nature/art/music..allows the brain to access alternative routes leading to the back doors of lost information affording a more rapid return to function.
This idea appears to have more votes. I have to wonder though to what degree has this "technology" been tested so that the question of licensing can be better addressed. If it is viable, should IdeaBlob be the source of funding or are there more relevant sources of funding out there? Being even an "armchair-virtual" venture capitalist is not all that easy.
