What the Internet Can't Do


If you've read this blog at all, you know what a proponent of the Internet I am. Not only do we use it for our business in all kinds of primary and secondary ways, we use it for personal use too. For instance, just recently, we were having a disagreement about actor Morgan Freeman's career. Look it up on the Internet, problem solved. Need a recipe, look it up, problem solved. It almost makes me giddy sometimes when I think of all the hours I used to spend in a library looking things up.

We hope we have added to your ease by providing beautiful art works, and fine handmade things on the Internet as well.

And while you can almost find anything on the Internet (ah, yes don't we love Wikipedia), there are a few things left to that you must solve with your own resources. Like where are your car keys, or your ipod ear buds, your sun glasses or that important file you needed an hour ago.

Alas, we still need our short term memory to function.--Ruth Mitchell

I love the comparison about "still needing our short term memory to function"! I lose things like car keys and earphones all the time!

I do agree that the Internet makes many things easier and more efficient, including sharing and promoting artwork! Online art communities/galleries are a great way to network, buy, and sell art online. Masterpiece Solutions’ new online art gallery, Masterpiece Online, is a comprehensive website where artists and galleries can sell their artwork. This multi-million dollar gallery has changed webpages from www.archerexchange.com to www.masterpieceonline.com, and with this site change comes with some handy new features, including:

· Redesigned website
· Enhanced consumer navigation
· E-commerce and low-cost lead generation options for galleries
· New social networking capabilities
· Google Site Search
· Comprehensive Integration with Art Gallery and Artist Management Software (Masterpiece Gallery Manager and Masterpiece Artist Manager)
· Merchant Integration

Thanks,

Emily (Masterpiece Solutions)
