AT&T to stop mass distribution of White Pages

I believe this is a step in the right direction. I personally do not use the white pages much and do not mind having to go online to search for information. The yellow pages will still keep coming, though.

There is some opposition to the plan, though.

The Importance of Business Ethics

Just the other day, an interesting article about an interview with Turney Stevens, dean of Lipscomb University's College of Business, caught my attention. The article is about the importance of business ethics in small businesses. Although the article is not about technology use in small businesses, my recent experiences in my own business provided the impetus for me to post a link to this article for other small business owners to read. At Neo IT & Security, ethics pervades every aspect of our business and we are proud of it. The article is available on Business Week's website at http://www.businessweek.com/smallbiz/content/dec2008/sb20081230_999118.htm?chan=smallbiz_smallbiz+index+page_top+small+business+stories.
