    I am simply amazed at all the varieties of services offered here now on BHW. 2 years ago, it wasn't really like that. I think its an awesome development and that it has improved the site a lot.

    But this has also lead me to think the glory days of IM might be coming to an end and I reference google's change to their algo again this week which will hit a lot of people.

    It all has similarity to the gold rush days that the people selling picks and shovels and pans made all the money, while very few prospectors got rich.

    Could the increase in BH services indicate we are nearing that threshold? Easy money has been made?

    google is just updating their '' caffeinated search '' nothing more and nothing less . the '' gold rush '' like you call IM , started long ago since first e-comerce sites started to pop-up , since then more than a decade pass and virtually nothings change . Peoples always will buy every piece of shit out there , no matter if is bad product/weak or simply worthless service . What and how google chance their search engines have nothing to do with IM in general ... (we) always adapt to the changes , humans in general adapting well to any kind of change over there :) ...

    You guys maybe better start and see this like '' progress '' . I`m simply scared about the day when (we) humanity in general will not face anymore progress ... !!! ( what and how might look the world if engines didn't had any progress in last 50-60 years ? / what and how can look our world in general if we didn't had to progress what comes with personal computers in general / what and how this world can look if no electricity wasn't there ... and examples can come endless ... )

    it's called progress guys :) don't be afraid about it ! :)

    Every time something changes on human culture, habits or material conditions new opportunities arise to make money.

    I canĀ“t name a fastest changing environment on Earth than Internet.

    So...
