I finally reached one of my goals for 2011. I have started to amalgamate my corporation’s assets with my sole proprietorship. This will make the ongoing management and accounting duties much easier for me. Copia Enterprises will be rolled into Promaginy. This has coincided with a relaunch of Promaginy.com with a new website design which I am quite pleased with. Check it out. To help me keep some focus since I can be a little manic, I decided to create brands that will be run under Promaginy so that it gives me a defined focus for my various interests. For example, the eCommerce holdings held by Copia Enterprises Corporation will come under a new eCommerce brand, Enlightenet. An example of this was the launch of TheStockOptionsCourse.com. A new gaming brand, Gamenigma, will focus some of my energy on Flash and Browser gaming niches. An example of this was the launch of UG2.com. And as before, I will continue my close partnership with Complex Games and also find ways to cultivate my Tamaya Refuge fictional setting. This is just the start of a series of exciting site and product launches. Stay tuned.

Unfortunately, he did not deliver on two levels: 1) This book was not as well received as his first book, and 2) This book did not accomplish what it claimed to do. I have always been intrigued when I see writers attempt to take a complex topic and try to simplify it. Daniel Levitin makes his own attempt by saying that entire human experience can be captured in six different songs: friendship, joy, comfort, knowledge, religion, and love. Each has a different function, but all serve to bind us together and make us stronger as a species. He reinforces the truism that music is what makes us human. While I can’t disagree with him, music is only one function that makes us human, an important one, but not the only one. I can’t help but feel that because Levitin […]
