Just woke up from an afternoon nap, and part of my dream was about a company called Air Vantage, that didn't own a single plane but negotiated deals with airports, small airlines, and individual pilots, and offered low fares to customers. They used a viral marketing campaign via direct mail and the Internet to get people advertising for them by word-of-mouth. That's what I remember anyway. I looked up the name using Google, and it has various meanings, only one of which is a now-defunct airline, or rather, an air-freight company by the looks of it.

Thanks in no small part to my blog reader Sean, my Mandelbrot Set Howto was selected to be a Featured Article. Cool.
