INFORMAVORE's SUNDAY No 478

My Dear Friends,

I still hope you will multiply successfully and disseminate INFORMAVORE’s SUNDAY everywhere even if the time
of this type of newsletters is, more or less, over. I am thinking
about how to increase the immediacy of the information I am
sending to the world. But first I want to arrive to issue 500.

You can find many good papers here- especially about thinking
and social sites.
In the real World, the Crisis is still our bad neighbor and the world
is increasingly suffering from chronic Probletence-  but eventually a very resistant dictator was lynched and has learned that the inevitable happens. But not only such things happen and this makes the world really interesting/

Very truly yours,
Peter

    1. I guess the current recession has crippled the entire world's economy.Many organizations have turned to other means for promoting their websites and products.One of these methods is through internet.I encourage social network users to actively support INFORMAVORE.

    2. Thank you! Actually they are people who read INFORMAVORE
      but nobody encourages it, When it was in Romanian it had
      around to 7700 readers per issue; now in English it has
      (very) few hundreds.
      Nothing can change this, it seems. I am ready to sell the newsletter.
