|In today's 'free' economy, we have become so used to getting things at no apparent cost to us, that many people actually start to believe that companies doing work for nothing is sustainable. At the end of the day, the sad fact is that money does need to change hands at some point because the landlord, electric company, grocer, needs to get paid, and, even businesses with apparently low cost business models have to live as well.
Twenty years ago, people wouldn't have dreamed that they were entitled to get something for nothing, but the Internet had to prove its low cost 'proof-of-concept' by giving stuff away and now the idea seems to have pervaded the rest of the economy.
Next time you are thinking about asking someone to do something for nothing, why not ask yourself 'what do I have that I can give in exchange', even if it's not cash.

GAPINGVOID SALON - MIAMI
Starting in a few weeks, I'm going to be holding a salon two or three times a month at Gapingvoid Central in South Beach. If you're local, or plan to be in town and would like to attend, please email us here, and we will let you know the exact dates and give you first dibs on a spot. The groups will be small, probably only 10-12 people, so space will be very limited. We'll be talking about Tech, Wine, Art, and all the other good stuff we like to geek out on etc. It should be fun, Thanks!
