A new spirit and boost of innovation is certainly needed to battle global warming. What on earth are we going to do if the price of oil is multiplied by three times $150 per barrel within a couple of years? Can social media and communication technology combined make it easier for businesses to innovate distributed energy solutions? But what the hell does this have to do with rising gas prices? Is there any correlation between the barrel of oil and networking? Make a call, let's start talking about it.

Imagine the impact of doing business with people all over the world with powerful handsets that carry more intelligence as personal computers from the 90's. People are more informed these days especially now when we have web 2.0.

  • Wirby the Global Village in Finnish

Our world has changed, and today you have the option of building your businesses from your home, or from anywhere else around the world you choose. Helge V. Keitel writes about mobility, post-PC, digital lifestyles, social media, in his  Finnish Kauppalehti blog. He writes about the need to move to a new kind of services and innovative energy-intensive production. It's no secret the economy is suffering. Gas prices are over higher than ever, a trip to the grocery store means digging deeper into your pockets. Consumers have turned to online resources to find better deals of goods they need.

Online shoppers use more time comparing prices on Internet to find cheaper products and services. They aren't automatically hopping in the car and searching the aisles of a local stores. Bargains are googled and searched on a global scale. E-tailers have a prime opportunity to make the most of the droves of shoppers desperate to find a deal online. Tactics suggested by industry watchers include special — and creative — promotions, e-mail marketing, free shipping, basic product page optimization, alternative payment methods and better customer service. Today’s economy is not about new products and services.  It’s about referrals,  getting people aware of what you're offering.

  • Idea generation using Wiki

Since nearly everyone in the developed world now has a mobile phone, most of the next billion subscribers will come from the developing world, in particular from China, India, Latin America and Africa. For the last couple of years, businesses have resisted the idea that consumers would shop online to save money on gas. But, with the prices as high as they are right now, we've most likely reaching the tipping point. The question then, for online retailers, is whether you make buy online, free shipping, save money on gas part of your marketing message. Is it helpful to remind people that they are spending so much money on gas? Shipping costs are going up. If you are offering free or discounted shipping, will it further erode your margins?

  • Blogging occasionally about Social Collaboration in Finnish

Europe is working to increase the use of natural gas from Russia. Finland has a gas pipeline from Russia. Haven't you ever wanted to be a risk taker? Someone who has some fashion flair, is sexy and has no problem flaunting it. If you're that person you need to visit the downtown of Loviisa. The city is small but we have great stories to tell you. We've some cool services. Personal referrals have a powerful impact on consumers but most of the people here live a slow-motion off-line life. It's a pity, but traditions are deeply rooted.

Cities of more than 100,000 people were not developed until the days of classical antiquity, 3,000 years ago.

Homo sapiens has been around for at least 25,000 years, and for almost all that time he has been a rural creature, his habit dominated by the need to find food.
