As I sit here at the PC thought I would take time to ask are you overwhelmed? As I awoke this morning my brain was hurting from all the internet information that I have researched over the past months about internet marketing, promoting, product sourcing and you name it I have done it.

Forget the fact that my nickname from my friends and family is Ms. Information, watch it now careful how you say that, we all from time to time get overwhelmed.

With the MySpace, Facebook, Youtube, MyBlogLog, eBay, Amazon, Ecrater, Craiglist, MSN, Alexa, SEO, Yahoo, Google, Wagglepop, Ioffer, Jott, Twitter, stand-alone websites, subscribed newsletters, email, blogging, e-books, forums, membership sites, video, talk radio shows, Web 2.0 now web 3.0 (‘the intelligent Web’), my friend your friend and every bodies friend, it’s a wonder that there are still strangers in the world. PHEW!!!

I just sometimes have to stop and punt, relax and take the load off. Being a research and information geek, love the stuff, it was bound to happen sometime and more times than we would like to admit. I tell ya there are times when I just can’t take anymore! OMG! Information and technology just keep expanding and expanding. The more there is the more I have to know. Forget knowledge is power how about knowledge is addicting!

Yeah I know there are ways to reduce this overwhelming feeling but oblige me for a moment in my vent to say it is just sometimes to much!

The first part on the way to recovery is yes to admit it and then sit back and work through it the best you can.

Now isn’t this ironic that I am blogging about this and using the exact technology that is a part of my overwhelming feeling. Believe it or not there is some therapy here just being able to blog about it and get it out.

Well now that I have done that time to get back to the information and research seeking mode. I heard someone say, “If you ever feel overwhelmed just think you could be deceased.” Kind of morbid but there is some truth to that, huh?

Here’s to you my overwhelmed friend, now go and relax! 🙂

Craiglist vs eBay or eBay vs Craiglist!

Well it’s time for me to update my blog and boy is there a lot in the world going on.

What is going on here? Another lawsuit we face on 4-22-08 with Craiglist and eBay.  Seems that Craiglist is saying this is “unethical” and is unfounded”. Delaware’s Court of Chancery Tuesday, alleging that Craigslist’s board of directors has entered into transactions that have “unfairly diluted eBay’s economic interest in Craigslist by more than 10 percent.”

Craiglist owner says this was out of the blue no dialogs from eBay about any of these. I just shake my head at all of the legalities we can really never know what goes on behind the scenes of big corporations. Can it be better to sometimes not even want to know about all this? I suppose if you hold stock in eBay or Craiglist it would be of importance to you.  But for most it goes on the list full of other lawsuits that come and go in the wind. One thing is for sure Craiglist is a biggie so big that eBay decided to have part ownership even if it is a minority investment of 28.4%. The eBay administration felt that Craiglist was a company worth benefiting from or they never would of bought it. As we know there have been talk over the years of eBay taking over Craiglist but only the paint and flies on the wall really know what really is cooking.

Bloggers are coming to the rescue for Craiglist stating its the competion factor and should Craiglist be really so concerned about minority shareholders, and the success of Craiglist or better yet competition is causing such a lawsuit. Bloggers are telling the Craiglist to hang in there they will come out shinning.

Here’s something to think about sue the company that you are a shareholder with. Now how does that sit with you?
