Home of the Brave

Met two founders of Perlentaucher.de (English version: signandsight.com) on my way home from Göttingen yesterday – T. and N. – very colourful characters – gotta introduce them to the students. A great place to learn about online business. As an IT operation, they are fully committed to OpenSource, with a number of home-made systems that could be interesting.

We had a long discussion with many tangents about the ups and downs of online publishing – great resistance mixed with envy by the traditional publishing houses (newspapers). The Perlentaucher (German for “pearl diver”) looks like a great experiment, which could become a great business, too. In 6 years of practice, they probably have seen it all.

They need a blog (or do they?). Money. People. Perhaps write a book about their journey.
