    So a new phone book of 200-300 pages got delivered to my place. BUSINESSES ONLY.
    These are theoretically all businesses that opted in to being in there, as one quick look at the restaurant section was 6 pages long, and for anyone who knows Montreal, we have an extensive list of great eateries from trendy independent fast food joints to 5 star class acts.

    Now normally I toss these out as information is a click away with big G, however I kept onto this one.

    These are all businesses that want to have their enterprise promoted and I believe they have to pay to be listed in this. Even if they do not, they still answered and accepted once solicited (if they did not straight up contact the book makers, to actually be in there). So on all aspects of the deal, they wanted to be promoted and took the required steps to be promoted.

    All in all, it is a gold mine really.

    Now I am looking at what I could do, to actually use this information and profit from this.

    I am wondering what ya'll would do with such information, and hopefully my story will incite you to look at sometimes overlooked information.

    Thanks
