I agree that the world is shaking at the moment due to the financial turmoil still affecting the whole world even the start of 2009. But instead of worrying of what will happen to us, let us all create new opportunities out of these troubles as I believe greater things await for us after these hard times. Let us all be optimistic that 2009 will be a year of great tidings for everyone.

I agree to the optimism and at the same time feel that only the 'Real Gold' will shine in this period.

This is the time when everyone is looking out for the any possible soultion/help for the respective situations.

Only the ones with the ability and confidence to provide transformational outsourcing will be able to reap the benefits.

2009 belongs to these souls to perform and others to watch.

There is an old Greek sculpture labeled Time, carved circa 330 BC by Lysippus. Here is the translation from latin, which he carved on the statue :

What is thy name, statue ?
- I am called Opportunity
Who made thee ?
- Lysippus
Why art thou standing on thy toes ?
- To show that I stay but for a moment.
Why hast thou wings on thy feet ?
- To show show how quickly I pass by
But why is thy hair so long on thy forehead ?
- That men may sieze me when they meet me
Why is thy head so bald behind ?
- To show that when I have once passed, I cannot be caught.

I share your optimism for 2009, Matt & Phil - let us seize the New Year with all its chances. Tempis fugit - Time flies. No great scholarship needed to translate this much latin , but to translate its language into life, we need a higher order of schooling.

With a prayer for more - Shanti, Peace, Islam - in 2009, for you & your family & friends.

Best Wishes,

Don't forget, January 6 is Three Kings day and they're bringing gold (and the smelly stuff).

Seriously, if this "bust" is anything like the "DOT.COM bust," it is going to be a great time for new and exciting technologies. We are looking forward to a lot more demand from startups. And that's the real "gold."

While everybody else is moaning and stressing, the real game changers will be quietly at work. Hook yourself up to one of these teams or, better yet, start one of your own. It has never been easier and cheaper to get a startup going.

If you think that Web 2.0 has been exciting with all the added interaction across the web, wait until late 2009-early 2010 and you'll see what the next wave brings. I don't know what it will be, but something as momentous and expansive is going to arise from all this.
