I believe learning should be free and fast.

Fast as in:

  • There are no enrollment hops until you reach a course. It starts immediately, online.
  • Videos make their point right away. They are short and concise.
  • And Fun: Learning must be fun, e.g. not solitary but a social activity.

For these reasons I am building Tech Buzz, a site for learning tech fast and free, - now focusing on tech areas towards building an online business.

Update: Launching an online software service shouldn't be hard.

So I took this tutorial some steps further to build SaaSBox. It lets you launch an online web application / SaaS about 4 weeks faster.
