The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith

by access2
Two events made 1776 a remarkable year. The first is the well-known Declaration of Independence by the Second Continental Congress. The other, which ultimately has had a far greater influence on the world in which we live, was the quiet publication of The Wealth of Nations by Scottish philosopher Adam Smith. Calling Smith an economist belies the fact that prior to The Wealth of Nations "economics" did not exist. His book is the foundation of the academic discipline.

MeCommerce

by erinmystic
For this nugget I focused on MeCommerce (http://mecommerce.goodstorm.com/). How do they get people to sell items on their site? First they attach the user by making it about the user. They share %50 of profits which seems as a fair amount. It is called MEcommerce which also makes it about the user. They emphasize being free and how easy it is to sign up. Also they show an example of a webpage with it set up. Though everything helps, probably the biggest motivator is money. The set allows the user to sell products relevant to their sites and get paid for them. MeCommerce seems to me to be a promising alternative to ads.
