Achieving the Personal Paradise – Looking for Your Success Stories

I recently spent several weeks living and working from a camp on a deserted tropical coral beach in Taiwan as an experiment in remaining productive in challenging - and idyllic – places. It was a truly wonderful experience that ten or even five years ago would not have been practically possible.

Trust Networks One, Job Security Nil

Everyone an Entrepreneur

Today we launch the first-ever version of Aegora - a minimal, invitational Alpha, its features comprising perhaps fifteen percent of our "ideal" fully-realized vision. After flipping the switch and going live last night, it still feels strange to see Aegora "in the wild" rather than behind a safe, password-protected barrier.
