You can't have one without the other. The Swiss have a saying "God rules in
heaven and money the earth. Even the Devil dances for gold." I don't think I
have any illusions about the importance of the bottom line for business
people, After all I have been chasing the almighty dollar since I was 14.
Though I must admit with limited success.
I am not a cutting edge or a first adopter. But when I went into the
hospital for 18 days eariler this montth I brought my laptop. I had 1,142 mp3
music files, 500 movies, and 40,000 books. I hardly watched the TV at all.
Over the past year I only went to 2 movies and bought no cd's. Bought
several hundred books though. Bought 600 PD DVD's. Of course I am a sample
of one but if I am a trend then the corporate-boys are in big trouble.
