If I start a new business what will I put on my website?

If I start a new business, I'd love to start a coffee shop. First of all, I will put what kinds of coffee flavers that I serve, and I will put the beautiful pictures of my shop and various sorts of coffee. When I do web search, the awesome pictures always fascinate me, so I believe it is one of the effective ways to advertise. Also, I will put where the coffee beans come from. If it is possible, I hope to put who grew the beans with their pictures. I would like to guarantee the products in this way. People might feel they are decent to see the manufactures. I will insist on the high quality of the coffee beans. Well, I'd love to put that you can save 50 yen if you bring your own mug cup. I also hope to put some coupons that people can have a cup of coffee by free if you order another cup of coffee. I will put the request corner, and I will do research what kinds of new tastes people want. It will make me closer to the customers. It is essential to put the pictures with the clerks' smiling, because nobody want to get unfriendly service. Finally, I will show that we do fair trade with the manufactuares. As this is a serious problem in coffee business now, I have to show the honesty by the declaration of "Anti-unfair Trade." I will get some alternative people in this style, and I can make the good impression on the other people socially too. Of cource, I have to give people abundant information about the coffee and some sweets in detail, but I believe it is more important to get the trust from the people. If they visit my shop, they will know the price, the taste and the atmosphere. However, they would't come there if they have their suspicion. I have to put the real things on the web site. There are innumerable similar sites on the Internet, so I should show our own special efforts to serve super tasty coffee on the web site. I will put that the customers can use the computers on each table if they want. I will put that if you order more than two cups of coffee, you would be able to use the internet by free for 30 minutes per each cup of coffee. Also, I will cooperate with other coffee shops and cafes. I will set some advertisements of other shops by the small visions. In stead of that, the other shops' websites put my advertisement. I often find and decide to go to another shop to see the other shops' web sites. It often happens, definitely. I will serve online shopping, such as holiday ( seasonal holidays) gift packs, coffee and tea equipments, blend bags. It means the customers can buy these products at home. Also, they can send the gifts to the people at home. I looked the coffee industry and the web page of other food businesses. I got this idea from the web site of "Star Backs." I thought this was a very good idea, because they don't have to come to my shop if they want to enjoy having some coffee at home. I would serve that the different tastes of coffee are delivered once a month for a year. I think I might put "free standard shipping on all orders over 60 dollars." The developed technologies could help me succeed on the new business.

Dear Sensei

Thank you for your comment. I was so pleased to see it. Well, you asked me why I thought the rights should be taken over by another person after the auther of a book or song has died. I mean that those rights should be protected by the original auther even after he or she has died, because I really think the authers should be able to have the ownership permanently. That is why, I assume the term to become public property depends on the owners. If they refuse to allow their songs and books to become public property even after they have died when they are alive, their hopes should be come true. Nobody can rob their rights, and all people can do is to follow the authers' ideas. If there is another person asked for taking over the rights by them, the person has to obey their belief. That is why, I've got a feeling that the authers have to think about their rights of writing more seriously. I hope many authers like to have their works become public property as their final decision. I suppose they could do that if they really love their songs and music. When they accept the seggestion, their works can be enjoyed more by innumerable people. It is an ideal philosophy that impressive works should be shared by everyone.

Another point was online shopping. I have thought the most credit card trouble is on the Internet. I cannot believe there is something different cause. What's it? Is it much bigger market than the Internet? I would love to know that! Please tell me what is the most credit card crime. I trust buying something at stores. Why can I trust the products? The reason is very simple, and I believe it's right. Because I can see and touch the goods at stores directly. What is more, I can see the clerks when I pay for the money although I know the products are not made by themselves. I can communicate with the salesclerks. I cannot trust the products in only pictures on the Internet. Even if I really liked something on the Internet, it might be different from my image. Also, I don't want to record my home address and my telephone number on the site. My personal information may spread by accident. I know I am a kind of conservative person, but I don't want to waste money by buying unsatisfied products as the result. I would like to buy everything after I saw directly. I guess this concern came from my distrust of the Internet. The huge resources have the both side of positive aspects and nagative ones, and I don't have enough knowledge to make sure which things give me advantages on the Internet. I definitely need to make efforts to get enough knowledge about it. I suppose it gives my life more sources if I learn about the Internet very well.

Sincerely,
lala

Title: Internet Security, Too much troubles?

Actually, I don't want to pay for every copy of books, movies and songs. However I would like to protect my right of writing if I make the works. I know it is a selfish opinion, but I guess I will try to protect the right of writing of my work when I make them. Personally, I agree with people who originally made the works. They should be owed their right, definitely. If they agree with that their works should be shared with many people in free, we don't have to pay for them. Even if they insisted on protecting their rights, we cannot refuse their opinions, because they made the works by themselves. I would like to regard the authors' rights as important. If the author has already passed away, the people who took over the works should protect the rights.

I don't think some information should be free, because too much information on the internet. It means nobody cannot control such huge information. It would be impossible that somebody has the power to control the indistinct world, so I feel some precious information shoud be protected by being paid for. I guess it can help authors protect the rights of their own works that people pay some money for particular information. However, I've never bought goods online. The reason is because I cannot trust the internet shopping very much even if I knew I would get some products more reasonably than that I bought at a store. I'm afraid of the indirect shopping, and I think this indistinctness that the internet has is always frightens me.

I think freedom in the information society has too much troubles, because the right answer never appears in front of us. This information society asks us for being responsible instead of giving freedom. I feel many Japanese people are not good at protecting themselves in their responsiblity. That is why, even they don't try to know about these things that we learned in the class. It is critical for Japanese people to get lots of information today, but their attitude to work on these complicated things is very poor. They like to get good information by driving the computer "automatically."

I learned that I needed to try to make sensible decisions to live in this information society. I should never be controled by "freedom." When I know how to drive the internet by myself, I might be able to control "freedom." For me, the most difficult part is that these complicated issues never have "Right Answers." All of us has to think about how we can get our own freedom by organizing too much information very well.

The issues on the internet
There are some rules to protect children on the internet. For example, my space do not allow children under 14 years old to join it. Mix do not accept children under 18 years old. However I wonder if 14 years old is the enough age to protect themselves. They are junior high scool students, and I guess it is very difficult for them to control the Internet. Even adults do not have enough knowledge to protect themselves. However it might depend on the values in each country. Generally, American children are more independent than those of Japan. I am 19 years old, but still my mother tell me to take care to go to university every morning. My American friends would laugh to know that, and I also think Japanase adults are too conservative in lots of points. Why can't such adults protect their children? I think this is a very interesting point. Japanese people are the very careful and conservative nation, but they cannot protect their children on the Internet. In my opinion, this is the biggest problem. They worry about their children, but they cannot find the ways to protect them. I guess it is because they do not understand the Internet very well. Actually, I know about it much better than my parents. Many parents need to be knoledgeble on the Internet. Even if they were very conservative, they would not solve the problems unless they improve their skill. They can read the articles of "Net Nanny," and they can ask the site to help them. Also, the goverment should have enough materials to warn dangers. They should encourage parents. I get sure that if the goverment and parents help each other, they can protect children. It is needed to work on the issue in the society. They should think about the issue more seriously.

Common Sence Rules
I read an article about "Common Sence" on the internet. I wondered why it was difficult to keep rules on the internet, because we do not have so many troubles to have common sence in our life. I thought that it might come from our poor knowledge about the internet. Even my highscool teachers did not teach how to protect myself on the internet. I had not gotten enough education about the internet until I took the class of English and the Internet in junior college, but it was really needed to use a computer in my life. I had to use it to do my assignments, to aply for jobs, to get lots of information. I did not have any alternatives to choose if I use a computer or not. I guess many people use computers without having common sence now, because they might be very besy to do thier work with their computers. I know the situation very well, but I would like to ask parents to get general rules on the internet, and I want them to be responsible to protect their children from unhealthy websites. I think the responibility is one of the most critical things to teach how to use the internet. Children cannot see which sites are harmful, so it is really needed that parents protect them with common sence. I felt that parents and their children have to have a close relationdship. Although it is a kind of hard that children talk about their problems to their parents, they absolutely should talk about various things with their close relationship. At first, children have to trust their parents, they would talk about their troubles not only about a computer. Parents need to be respectable adults for their children. Ideal parents know how to tell them common sence on the internet not only knowledge.

What must Japan do?/ How is Japan vulnerable?
Now, Japanese people do not have enough information to know dangers on the internet. I am also one of the people who do not know how to protect themselves. In my opinion, Japanese goverment should have the law to inform dangers to the nation. The government should have the system to inform dangers. They can distribute a magagine to warn dangers to each household periodically. If I get such a magagine, I would have a great opportunity to get information that shows the ways of protecting myself. Also, the government can make the TV programs to inform gangers on the internet. Newscasters could tell us the dangers happning on the internet day by day. Then, the Japanese nations should response these movements. They are required to check out them, because these things would consist of the consideration between the goverment and the nations. If people pay more attentions, they would gradually know the dangers on the internet by these materials. Japanese people should be more agressive to protect themselves. Personally, I think the passive attitudes of trying to protect themselves cause the vulnerability of Japan. Japanese education should grow students who have the responsibilities to protect themselves on the internet. They could give them various lectures supposed to let them know dangers on the internet. The goverment should have the obligation to protect the nations by using some materials. Japan is vulnerable, because people do not have enough information to protect themselves. What is more, the government needs to be more responsible about the internet in order to make the good environment for using the internet. If the both of the government and the nations get nore careful with terrible dangers on the internet, Japan could change this situation that Japan is vulnerable. I hope Japanese peole have the good relationship between the internet and them, and I think peole should try to protect themselves on the internet. If the Japanese nations get the ways to control their computers very well, Japan would not be vulnerable anymore.

The Technology Generation Gap in Japan
When I was a junior high school student, my father bought the first computer for my older brother. My brother really needed a personal computer to look for a job when he was a senior at university. That is why, my father bought it for him. Actually, my parents cannot use English at all still now. When the computer came to us, my brother used it very often practically. Then he taught me how to send e-mails to my friends. It was my first experience to use it, and I felt the personal computer was so smart! I got so surprised to know many possibilities which a personal computer had. I got impressed to get lots of information on the internet. I tried to teach my parents how to use a computer, but my parents could not get the skill. They refused to learn about a computer. My older brother and I use our computer almost everyday, but my parents never use it. They always tell me that they are old. I know many Japanese people in my parents' generation cannot use computers. Personally, they should try to know about personal computers, because I think that if they don't try to know about it Japanese people would not the real skill of computers. They should try to get the skill to grow young people. This is the big issue for all Japanese people. It depends on the efforts that the big generation gap becomes much smaller. They are really needed to make a great effort to make this internet society more general.
