Could someone please define for me what, exactly, constitutes a "Real Business," and how, exactly, livejournal is not.
Should it not go like this:
%group_of_people% == %group_of_people%
%group% == %group_of_people%
if %group_of_people% == make_money
if %group_of_people% == form_company
if %group% == incorporate_company
(yes, well aware this would not work in any known programming language)
If a group of people start a site, start making money from said site, pay themselves and those working with them a wage to sustain their standard of living, form a "parent company" or company name that holds the project of said site under it, and incorporate that company to protect their asse(t)s, would that not be a real business?
Perhaps I missed a post, somewhere, explaining this?
