The Economics of being an emerging online business model

It started back in 1999’s stock market collapse, the rise of the dot.com empire’s and yet we were nobodies.

Came 2001 right after 9/11 then 2004 when two major online business empires almost ruled the world online to include advertising.

Enter 2006, good riddance to more pro-small business models like Google,  Yahoo, Windows, Live.com,  My-space and Facebook including our book notables like Abebooks, Alibris.com, Biblion.co.uk, Choosebooks, Valorebooks, A1 books, Tom Folio.com  and the ABA (American Booksellers Association) when venture capitalists in Silicon Valley where the king of the jungles influenced by the big shot major online players.

Yet, 2007 came start of the great recession after 1931 and a gradual change in the socio-political climate of the world in terms of technology and business.  Fall of 2008 made history having the 1st online high tech 44th President of the United States, a darling of the poor, a new robin hood in technological times and realization that even micro enterprise start-ups have the potential to someday experience the lives the king’s and emperors of silicon valley.

Today, 2009 brings a new generation of emerging online business models ala the dot.com period where emerging start-ups which was snob by venture capitalists before came to rule the world.

The San Francisco Antiquarian Book Fair – A Way to Connect Internationally

While finalizing details to revived our Rare Books site, an antiquarian friend reminded me that tomorrow is the opening of the SAN FRANCISCO Book Fair for Antiquarian books at the San Francisco Concourse.

This year, they will have about 200 exhibitors locally and internationally. First Editions, rare manuscripts and rare books are somewhat the equivalent of Rare Art for the Bookselling industry. It takes a lot of ethics, professionalism and honesty to be in this group.

They are open from 10 AM – 7 pm and then on Sunday from 10 AM – 5 pm.
Admission is about $10.00 but with return privileges.

So if you are book enthusiasts at heart, come visit the show and experience the once in a lifetime
rare books worlds.

Books are a way for people to connect as well from different facets of SOCIETY.

Good luck to the world of rare books exhibitors.
