A Few Business Ideas To Avoid
from the what-happened-to-Business-2.0 dept
I’m not quite sure what’s happening over at Business 2.0 these days, but they’ve been publishing some positively wacky articles lately. It’s almost as if they’re parodying themselves. The latest is a short article about three “failed” business ideas. The “ideas” listed are pretty funny (my favorite is the anti-stupidity drug), but I’m not quite sure what the point of putting such a parody-type article in the magazine is. Maybe, after realizing that the market for business tech mags has completely gone away, Business 2.0 is trying to reinvent itself as the next Onion? Update: Immediately after posting this, I started reading an article at the E-commerce Times which is like the real version of this parody as they list a “junkyard” of failed e-commerce ideas.
