MassTimes.org, Amaze.fm, SermonSpice.com
NRO’s John Miller pointed to this site which serves Catholics away from their home parishes.
One reason I doubt very much the gloom and doom gang when it comes to the economy is because of the incredible productivity and ingenuity unleashed by the web. MassTimes.org is just one of a billion applications that serve to make lives easier and more productive. (Another is Amaze.fm, serving singer/songwriters. A third is SermonSpice.com, serving pastors who need visual assists in their services.)
Wherever there is an intersection of expertise, need and talented programmers, there is a new opportunity to serve, to increase the efficiency and ease of life, and possibly to profit, all of which grows the economy. The continued push out of technology and programming skills promises a remade world –if the freedom that allows the innovation explosions can be protected from the destroyers.
