The Franchise King’s Weekend Round-Up, October 9th, 2010

Some of my more pro-active royal subjects have been scouring the www for interesting and informative stories all week, and here's what they came up with;

I'm starting to wonder of small business loans are starting to get approved. You know; approved. Rieva Lesonsky shares some data on this Small Business Trends post.

There's a new blog for you rocket scientists; Escape Velocity. I'm kidding; It's not for rocket scientists. It's for folks that want to do things better. Chris Brogan has assembled a star-studded team to help him "launch" this. Liz Strauss, Chris Garrett, Carol Roth, Jonathan Fields, and Chris Guillebeau, are writing here.

Jason Calacanis shot off an email to the fine folks (who don't seem to care about your privacy) at Facebook. Actually, he sent it right to Zuckerberg. He strongly suggested to Zuckerberg that he let folks opt-in to the new Groups. I guess that Jason doesn't really want to join any Facebook Nazi Groups or anything similar, unless he actually wants to. Read Jason's email. Opinion; The folks at Facebook don't really care about your privacy. Read this blog post.

Finally, for those of you who comment here, I just changed to a new commenting platform called Intense Debate. I think you'll like it.
