'Gray Googlers' strike gold - Yahoo! News: "The same thing happened with Gail Bjork, 63, who runs the Digicamhelp site from her home base near Tampa. She designed her site but made a friend online in Ireland who has since redesigned it for a more professional sheen. 'My background was art,' says Bjork. 'I was an art teacher. I didn't know about code. My friend does. So now she handles the design, and I operate the site.' Bjork is a former local school board member who ran a print shop with her husband. A camera buff, she started the site because her friends were always asking for photo tips. 'This started as something to help my friends, and I've gone from a 14-page site to one with over 700 pages,' she says. 'I'm legally retired now - but not mentally.' Her site brings in around $1,500 a month. Bjork's advice to others: 'For anyone, no matter what age they are, if they find something they truly love, write about it. You have nothing to lose but time. And it could really pay off.'"

Bike Buffs, Pedal Pushers Unite - 10/8/2007 - Tradeshow Week: "Las Vegas—Heading into this year's Interbike Intl. Bike Expo, anybody following the news might have had questions about the tradeshow's future. Heading out, attendees were likely to have few, if any, doubts about its success. Under attack from would-be competitors and cycling enthusiasts for most of the past year, and tethered to an industry rocked by scandals, Nielsen Business Media, owner of the show, managed to mollify critics and grow Interbike to record size. The show, held Sept. 26–28 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center/Venetian Resort Hotel Casino, filled 313,000 net square feet of exhibit space, according to Nielsen. The company reported preliminary total attendance of 22,000, including 11,000 buyers."
