The Times They Are A-Changin’

Barack Obama claims historic presidential nomination

First African-American nominee for President of the United States of America

I do like this quote from Representative John Lewis:
“Barack Obama is not an African-American nominee. He is the Democratic nominee for president of the United States,” Lewis said. “T hat’s what this struggle was all about — to create one America, one house and that is what Barack Obama represents”

Another teen makes some $$$

A 15 year old sold his discussion forum, ZuneBoards, for USD 62,000.

Typically we hear about those multimillion dollar deals from internet start-ups helmed by 20-some year olds that are sold to big companies like Microsoft, Google, etc.

I wonder how many of these smaller-transaction sales are done.  It’s heartening to see that someone who creates something as simple as a message board forum can generate enough interest to warrant a big sale, even while a teenager.
