The web has been built around a market economy, and requires it because people require it to live.

Quality information and education. Entertainment and inspiration. Economic gain and social networking.

These all exist on the web, this is the way of the world. People will choose what they want, and I believe those of us promoting quality information and products have nothing to worry about.

“If someone comes up with something better than AdSense and kills it, the world will be a better place.” – Matt Cutts

Nick Wilson of Performancing quoted Google’s spam warrior Matt Cutts in October 2005 from the Web 2.0 Conference in San Francisco. The statement couldn’t ring truer still today.

“There’s a ton of room left for experimentation,” he said. “If someone comes up with something better than AdSense and kills it, the world will be a better place.”

There is nothing happening on the Web today that provides publishers, advertisers and users with a relevant, targeted platform to interact and easily communicate with each other (other than blog networks, tools and tagging networks like Del.icio.us of course ;)). Wandering shopping malls hoping to find what you’re looking for is fast becoming a fun “pre-web” activity, and has not been the primary way consumers shop for quite some time. “Going out” or having “face-to-face meetings” has also not been the only way people communicate or collaborate for years.

Today we look for what we want and we can’t stand clutter. If we want information we don’t want to see products, and we’d rather hear someone we respect recommend a product rather than be bombarded by overly-aggressive ads. If we want a product we’ll either go looking for it, to learn about or buy it – or we’ll go to favorite blogger on the topic and see if he has anything to say about it. Even Time magazine gets it with the person of year for 2006 being “YOU” – the personalized information retrieval and boundary-less instantaneous-and-ongoing-conversation era.

So advertisers want to join the conversations. People talk about products, services, businesses, people, places, things… and they’ll do it if you pay them and they’ll do it if you won’t. Good people will always talk honestly – its integrity and its nothing new – and good people will let their audience know if they are being paid to talk.

We are getting closer to an time not of *information cluttered with ads* but *information we can trust* (because people like us will create and spread it).

Steve Pavlina – another Nomad

While manifesting my own destiny I find myself “stumbling” into like minds. It’s easy to forget we are responsible for our own reality. Deep down we all know we are. This is one of those few “truths” I am well aware of and continually manifest reminders to myself. I thought I would do the same for you by introducing you to Steve Pavlina of StevePavlina.com and his post on The Law of Attraction.

If you find this Steve, keep spreading the love and wisdom brother.

Subjective reality is a belief system in which (1) there is only one consciousness, (2) you are that singular consciousness, and (3) everything and everyone in your reality is a projection of your thoughts.” (thanks Steve Pavlina of StevePavlina.com). His post regarding The Law of Attraction is a must read for anyone who’s ever thought about choice, responsibility or ones ability to manifest their own destiny. “It’s your entire collection of thoughts that dictates how your reality manifests.”

The icing on the cake:
“I too am just a manifestation of your consciousness. I play the role you expect me to play. If you expect me to be a helpful guide, I will be. If you expect me to be profound and insightful, I will be. If you expect me to be confused or deluded, I will be. But of course there’s no distinct ME that is separate from YOU. I’m just one of your many creations. I am what you intend me to be. But deep down you already knew that, didn’t you?”

Great post in inc.com profiling Ken Hendricks, the 107th most richest man. Great guy. The article is definitely worth a read.
