The Carnival of the Capitalists is one of the longest-running blog carnivals on the web. It covers all kinds of business-related topics and usually gets at least 50 entries sent in – recently, hosts were allowed to filter. I took the freedom to make this edition of the carnival relevant to Micro ISV’s in the Palm OS business – if you didn’t get included this week, next week’s host will probably like your post better!
I took the freedom to divide the posts into categories for easier locating – this has served us well for the Carnivals we hosted before – never change a working system!
