Monty shows a little leg

My former journalist-contemporary, now budding web entrepreneur Paul Montgomery has lifted his skirt just a little with a screenshot and a bit of an explanation of his tinfinger project. There’s a business model somewhere in amongst that isn’t there, Monty?

  1. Sure is! Just not much of one on the news pages. The profile pages are where it’s at.

    Well c’mon. Flash us a bit.

  3. They’re not finished yet. Anyway, where’s your you-beaut idea that’s going to make you millions on the Active Web? It’s all very well playing the role of the dispassionate journo who just talks about it, but I thought these days you were a high-flying businessman who actually got things done. Surely with your experience and contacts you could deliver a built-to-flip startup ready made for Fairfax or News to mop up in 12 months?

    Flock, yeh. I should just abandon my old Web 1.0 project (which by way of noting, incorporated elements of social networking/blogging/etc before it became all cool and stuff) because OMG we’re getting into profitability and thats so Un-Web 2.0. I’m more than happy building a business that I dont’ need to flip, thanks.

    Which is not to say I won’t have a dabble…

  6. Yay!

    Yeah, walled gardens of content like ITJourno are uncool these days. However, “leveraging” a profitable business to build a new one is very 2.0. As the saying goes, kill your own sacred cows before someone else does.
