If you haven’t figured it out by now, it’s not really about the data. Actually by the time a solution is created to gather, many new data requirements emerge. It’s a never-ending battle to which we all feel required to tackle in one form or another. Thoughts and actions create the data or potential for something useful that may (for some) cause an opportunity to satisfy a need or desire. Harvesting to form a purpose from what was and is, tends to be what all this technology is about.

As we all by our every action create new data to be assimilated, there will forever more be a gap or space between data being formed and that which has yet to be assimilated. For now it appears that it is impossible for new data and the actions resulting from to appear precisely at the same time and in the same space (yes, time does exist).  As we advance the space will just get smaller but may never be at once. For me this is great, absence of this singularity will continue to provide a welcome purpose.

As indicated prior, About2Buy (as most commercial efforts) is a product made possible by the enormous gap between pursuit and attainment. I mean really, how could one form a want/need and possession of  precisely at the same time? To be weird about it, that would be like living and dying simultaneously.  So as we build to provide our space-saving solution between buyer and seller, (upon the Internet) the gap between will be far smaller than it ever has been before.

Throughout the years much has been written about spaces, the gaps between. If I am here and you are there, what is between us. If that is there and this is here, what may bring them together. There is so very much which may be done with that to which resides between. Appears at times to be our primary purpose.

Much of the time concerns of what, why & how dominate. What is between, why is it, how do we remove or replace, the contemplation’s for these from those with purpose. To fill or replace that which resides is our role.

The Internet being so new and vibrant is the perfect  subject, beginning as a haven for holistic communication to what it is today. Wherever communication or a medium for exchange is present, it is certain that commerce will appear. The initial intent may have been to improved upon the connection between the many with, to those who want. But spaces need to be filled as our nature and history exhibit, for this is where opportunity resides.

The space between Seller &  Buyer may be expanding, if not how could so much within materialize. Connectors to which for a fee offer (with uncertainty) to nudge a seller in proximity of a buyer. Through limitless effort termed as marketing, advertising, lead generation, targeting and alike, this ever expanding space formed it’s barrier with a toll to pass. Now not many upon the Internet may see it in this way, be it not the 1st. time by the masses we have been so conditioned.

Now imagine the Internet as it is and a way around to it’s side. An alternative connection to every buyer and relevant seller, absent the wall, net or toll to pass. Connection as are under construction as we speak, a short path with little space for the purposeful to meet.

What is a destination, is it where we intend to arrive? Not just for travel, a destination for many is the desired end result. Examining this behavior in the products we seek, there are several roles:

(1) The Traveler – Conducts oneself more as a tourist, rewarded by the journey. The destination could be any along the way.

(2) The Commuter – Focused solely upon arrival at the destination. End point remains the goal.

In commerce,  (1) is a shopper, (2) is a buyer. Daily, there are a healthy amount of about the web, (1) “the traveler” is by far the most highly sought. Why would this be,  wouldn’t the “commuter” be of most interest? Well that depends upon your point of view, are you selling product or selling advertising? Not hard to realize upon the Internet, the prior promotes “buying”, the latter promotes “shopping”. If shoppers convert to buyers rapidly, less advertising is required. As a (remedial) result spending for will decrease, increased margins (for sellers) are the result.  Decreased margins for advertising also is the result.

So is devoting more time and effort to advertising the most efficient path for sellers to follow? Not really, in fact efforts as will definitively increase costs equal to the amount of realized gain. If this is what one prefer’s to do, we wish you well. If as an effort one would prefer to gain additional profit, than a more direct alignment to the consumer should be sought.

Sellers everywhere have but a brief moment remaining. If the “destination” does not become more-so of favor, everyone in one capacity or another will (without benefits) end up working for Google, Facebook and alike.

Noticed how systemic efforts often forget their purpose, so many examples to this. One might consider federal tax deductions of the many.  Originally, it’s most practical purpose was to award taxpayers for minimizing cost to the federal government. A way of saying “OK you saved the fed money by your actions” we’ll extend to you a discount on your membership. But of course interests beyond over many years removed this purpose. This and so very many others by example resemble the long-term aches and pains of our unionization. It all begins well, then over time through varied or less insightful guidance becomes something much less.

For our purpose, we look at commerce. What it was, what it is and what it may become, the latter has room for a more idealistic view. So in looking at the past,present and future of commerce in various capacities for over 20 years, a simple base theory remains constant and (in my opinion) will forever maintain its dominance. Commerce (for all practical purposes) is an exercise where anything of a perceived value is exchanged for anything of  perceived equal value. <= Notice the period upon the end of the sentence.

While commerce now may have become (as taxes) something else, it’s base theory is so dominant that when reintroduced becomes an undeniable force. This is the foundation of our venture, an undeniable purpose. The direct alignment of unadulterated commerce. The timing and infrastructure for (at this time of writing) is unprecedented.

Reports found 72% of us already feel like Big Brother is watching us when we get personalized recommendations on Facebook and other sites, and 56% of us say we feel “violated”. Another indicated that 89% of us haven’t bought anything on Facebook and that 44% of us aren’t interested in doing so. These are pretty damning figures for, supposedly, one of the hottest new industry trends.

What most experience now on the Internet  is what happens when profit  importance exceeds service. Fortunately, Only one has the ability to serve the other.

Is Titan the word to use here? Another could be champion, you get the picture. Either way we could imagine by hearing, a leader is described. You know the one we so very rarely get to be (on a grand scale) but often hear of in others.

As title suggests, referring to commerce and those considered “Titans” of. Who by what means granted such position and title. You know Amazon’s, eBay’s and alike, the billionaire companies that sought and conquered. Was it the press? or maybe the gossip forums formed by us which now proclaim themselves social networks. From who’s opinion it matters not, for certain it was ours who granted them so. Popularity by size of revenue is the vessel we use to propel, seeing not the real champion to which is our claim.

You see we have always looked to others and held high as the creator, when all along it was our adoption which caused it and every. As yesterday, the time before and again today I grant them. Maybe one day further “Our” will become “we” and “we” will unite to resurrect and take command.

It is commerce and all within that was lost, for we gave yield and forgot our worth. So now that we have powerful new tools of communication and tech, the time is here for all to gather. To do so separately is to not utilize our numbers. So lets join and group to move forward our quest, as we pursue our goods on our terms and by our way.

It is by way of About2Buy.com we march, to say no more no way to all the former. We do so for you have forgotten, that to push, pry, track, record and follow damages dignity as well as my confidence in. So perk up and listen, for I will announce to you and the masses my pursuits and intentions from here on in, if alike your urged to follow. I then will award and allow you to prosper,  for my business if not taken for granted will forever be graciously given.

If you’re a buyer stay tuned, privacy and  freedom are on the way. If you are a seller stay plugged-in, consumers a plenty are About2Buy.

Watching all the social internet noise my mind can assimilate, many a thing become clear. One consideration is to imagine the social compared to marriages, friendships and relationships. I’m sure psycho Therapists and alike are having great fun as of late, especially when observing the environments provided. More like ecosystems than any, they structure themselves as to create the actions and behaviors to sustain.

When said ecosystems reach a level of influence upon their users, many become bored and seek to deepen their relationship with. Now normally this is done to expand population and to comfort the financial bottom line through exploitation of. Don’t get me wrong the sites and tools of which I refer are quite attractive and useful to those who frequent. But as stated in earlier posts, many expansions enacted have but one fiscal purpose.

As some expansions of service are well intended, it is very important to balance the offerings and not to “Smother” the relationship. This as mentioned may describe the actions of many who are no longer. Users basically disengage (divorce) from overwhelming feelings like that of a smothered relationship.

Now while the Tech press, bloggers, social media, etc. have glorified the many and much released by Facebook (F8) recently, I have this strange feeling the relationship Facebook just adjusted may have initiated the “smothering” process of which does not usually go well. It’s kinda interesting how a certain type of personality when absent of  healthy relationship experience acquires this habit to smother. Internal feelings that speak “I want so much for this to work out”, I want you so very much”, “please don’t leave me” persist to destroy what may have been a perfectly good relationship.

OK, so we all are aware of (from our own life’s experiences) or been at the giving or receiving end of, but could such notion be applied toward an Internet social enterprise? If from this point of view one considers, it is not unthinkable to notice? Everyone loved the relationship they had in the beginning, what we have now is too much to handle.

As we learn, observe and prepare this extraordinary service called About2Buy.com, It is certain we will leave all guests alone to venture, discover and participate as they will. We will be here to share it with and careful not to push it upon.

“Living free” is unrivaled, Cheers!
