The internet let a single person have more information at their figure tips than is stored in a library.  If a fifth grade was doing a report on lion and typed “lions” into Google he would get 104,000,000 results.  The problem with the internet is that there is so much information that it is impossible to find what someone actually wants.  Google has become a 200 billion dollar company by trying to develop a search engine that helps people find what they are looking for.  Even with Google however there is just so much data that it is nearly impossible to sift through the data.  Data is just noise to the use it needs to be turned into meaningful information so they can use it.

Wherever there is a problem there is the potential for an entrepreneur to come in and find a solution.  People are calling out for ways to find the useful information and block all the spam or useless data.  Websites like the Drudge Report or other information blogs allow people to just go to one website instead of looking for all the information themselves.  As entrepreneurs there is a great potential to become an expert in a specific area and develop ways to simplify and condense the information for users.  Blogs are a great way to write about your expertise in an area and if enough people are interested then you can leverage it to make money.  People need people to look through all the data that the internet provides and turn it into meaningful information.
