Some great perspectives here to why the team and I @ are so committed to our startup. We are creating a platform that enables everyday users like you and I to get more value from sharing personal data with those who want it. Our app will make it easy to anonymously leverage and monetize personal data including location, likes, interests and intent to get more relevant and meaningful deals, offers or ads. The best part is, you own your data so you get paid when its used. How is that for turning the tables.

I started thinking today about the size, and strength of the web/internet economy as a whole. Of course this led to more research into trying to find out the actual amount of revenue that the Internet economy brings in yearly. Some initial digging (google mostly) didn't turn up a good answer.

Some old Forester research turns up from 99 giving 2003 predictions of 1.3 trillion and some other flaky reports putting 2003 at 2.8 trillion.

Then I found in the attached link that the U.S government most likely has the figures I am curious about (Somewhere). I cant seem to find any published information. Now I am kind of curious to know what type of numbers (actual revenue not projected) we are talking about.

Anyone seen or have any idea where to find this type of data?

Great post. I believe highlighting your own failures as a leader can help your employees take more risks, push the boundaries of their own skills and ultimately develop the Entrepreneurial traits that enable leaders to become leaders.

If everyone was afraid to fail, human progress itself would be a giant failure.
