Re-posted with his permission.If you liked my previous talk(s), you might want to come to a new,more technical one-day course. It will be held at Caltech onNovember 14. See http://photo.net/teaching/one-day-tools.htmlfor details. The class is free and when you're finished you'llbe able to easily build something like amazon.com, ebay, or photo.net in a matter of days with open-source tools.If you liked my previous one-day talk and think a friend orcolleague would be interested, please tell them that the coursewill be repeated on November 13 at Caltech and November 20 atUniversity of California Berkeley. They can register at http://register.photo.net The ArsDigita Community System that you saw demonstrated at the previous courses is getting steadily better. It is being pushedforward partly by our students (at five universities now) but also by ArsDigita.com, which is up to $12 million in sales and 40 developers (proving that one need not be smart or lucky to succeed in the Internet business). Seehttp://photo.net/doc/version-history.html to keep up with the improvements.Finally, if you know any 18-year-old kids or younger, please tell them to get ready to apply for the ArsDigita Prize (they can check http://arsdigita.org for details but the bottom lineis that they get $10,000 and a trip to MIT if they build a tasteful non-commercial Web service).
