Wilhelm Research The definitive site on print longevity. I visited Henry Wilhelm in Grinnell, Iowa when I crossed the country in 1973. He's gone on to do some great things like slamming my former employer, Eastman Kodak, for making inferior products. They deserved it. Kodak could have made much longer-lived films and papers at a slight incremental cost, but the bean counters won the day. In the long run the stockholders (me), employees (me, again!) and customers (what, again?) lost out.

Multi-level marketing (MLM or network marketing) You can't live on this planet without being offered one of these "investment opportunities." Before you take the pyramid plunge, check the following sites: http://www.mlmwatch.org/http://www.rickross.com/http://www.freedomofmind.com/http://www.cageyconsumer.com/. I highly recommend Amy Chen Mills' delightful article, " Shaking the Money Tree " about Equinox International. Also Timothy Harper's tawdry tale of New Age sociopath Taansen Sumeru. Charles Ponzi 's biography should be required reading ( Smithsonian's brief version ). MLMs are like the hydra-headed monster of ancient Greek mythology. You can't kill 'em, but you can defend yourself.
