BPUBS K2B - KNOWLEDGE TO BUSINESS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EDITOR: Steven Matthews, MLIS

Knowledge to Business (K2B) is an update service
for business owners and professionals. Twice a 
month you will be e-mailed links for business articles 
that have stood out as submissions to BPubs.com
[ URL: http://www.bpubs.com ]. 

EDITORS NOTE:

Happy holidays to you! Reading business articles may 
not be as important as getting your Christmas shopping
done, but this weeks collection should still prove 
interesting. Besides, it's only those strange "business 
types" that procrastinate by reading Fast Company.

Enjoy the articles,  Steve

"NO HOMEPAGES. NO INDEXES. NO SURFING... 
JUST CONTENT BECAUSE YOUR TIME IS 
WORTH SOMETHING"

You may have caught the BPubs homepage tagline
and wondered "what's that all about?"  Well... BPubs 
is crusading for a miniature revolution in the way 
search engines work - it's called "Content Indexing". 
You can read more about why indexing 'only content'
may become a trend in the way search engines are 
changing at the BPubs "about this site" page.
