    OT - Doc

    Hey Doc –

    Regarding your upcoming website/blog, I would like to offer a small piece of advice.

    I suggest that you take a page out of Steve Jobs’s playbook and deploy what I call the “Opium Theory”.
    As you probably already know, Steve placed FREE Apple II computers in all the elementary schools across the nation.

    You let people have FREE access for some period of time, just enough to get people “hooked” :-)
    Then you can start soliciting on-line advertisers once viewership reaches an acceptable level, and maybe even charge for access?
    Flightnurse should be able to provide some level of mentorship in the development – yes?

    And, depending upon your level of energy & commitment, you might even start training others to conduct on-line courses for a fee.

    Just a thought………..

    All The Best,

    PS - Banks once deployed the same concept, when they first introduced the ATMs’.
    Now look at what has happened :-)
