I once heard a story about a Romanian man who was appealing his own death in court. Now I won’t tell you this whole Kafka meets Sawyer tale, but basically he had left his wife and family and she claimed he was dead to remarry.
But here’s the kicker:
When the man tried to rectify the mistake, regain his identity, and get a passport to return to Turkey where he had set up a small company… the Romanian court denied him claiming that he filed his appeal too late.
So here was this man, standing in court, fighting to prove he was alive.
Ahhhhh. The sweet morning smell of bureacracy.
And the truth is, up until this point, bureacrats have largely stayed out of the online world. As far as businesses go, there are way less rules and regulations online than offline.
But this won’t always be true. And in many ways it’s fastly changing.
Which has led some to call this age the dying days of the “Wild West of the Internet”.
So, whether ye be Outlaw or Lawman, soon there may be a bounty upon your head.
So I recommend staking your claim and striking the motherlode sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, I’ll be out west, sharpening my picks and shovels.
