The Net Can Be a Lonely PlaceWritten by John Calder

That sounds strange, doesn't it? With more surfers, marketers, and potential customers coming online everyday, how on earth can Internet be considered lonely?
For busy marketers working at home full-time, or new marketers who aspire to that, it can be that way. The marketing forums are there, and they're great places to give and receive information, bounce new ideas around, and even occasionally engage in off-topic discussions. Email is perhaps more focused and personally relevant, but in end, electronic display isn't all that different from a forum. And you may have an email list with many thousands of subscribers, built through relationship marketing. But even that is done by email or your web site, and there's still no real personal relationship there. If you have a "name" within Internet marketing community, you may do business over phone or a voice over IP service, which at least gives some live interaction with another person. But very few are in that position, and most Internet marketers do very little business if any by phone.
Besides all that, marketers are often very busy, especially those working on their business after working at a full-time job. This leaves little time for socializing, and it's all too easy to brush aside opportunities for non-business social gatherings. This can be detrimental to our long term well being. Humans are by nature social creatures - we apparently have a deep-seated need for true social contact with others. Not everyone needs same amount of contact of course, but even misfits and loners among us still have a need for personal interaction.
What is Color?Written by Robert Kennedy
What is Color? Color is light. Light is energy and travels in waves (according to theory) Light waves originate from a source such as sun, a light bulb, a fire, etc. In these sources of light, there are many different wavelengths. Wavelength is measured from crest to crest in nanometers (billionths of a meter) or in mill microns (Millionths of a millimeter). The human visible spectrum of color range is considered to be between 380 mill microns and 770 mill microns and is part of much larger electromagnetic spectrum.
Sir Isaac Newton established that a beam of "colorless" light passing through a prism is refracted or bent into separate bands of colors, in seventeenth century. These are known as colors of visible spectrum. Each color has its own wavelength. When all wavelengths are combined "white" light is produced. All individual and combinations of colors are inherent in white light. In nature this is seen as a rainbow.
HOW WE SEE COLOR In "white" or "colorless" light all visible colors are contained. With each perceived color light energy travels in waves having a dominant wave length which differs from wave length of any other perceived color.
Human eyes or vision acts as if it has "color receptors". One set of receptors is sensitive to red wave lengths of light, a second is receptive to green wave lengths, and third is sensitive to blue-violet wave lengths. When red and green receptors are stimulated we see yellow. The various colors of spectrum are seen depending on strength and mixture of wave lengths which strike our receptors.
