Build a business case: developing custom apps

Virgin boss and oh-so-nearly-non-stop-round-the-world-balloonist, Richard Branson, is staring in his own Webcast next Tuesday to let ordinary people quiz him about his life, the universe and everything. Aides close to the UK entrepreneur said they want the broadcast to be "even bigger" than similar events hosted by Prince Charles and UK Prime Minister Tony Blair. The audience can ask him just about anything they want -- everything from his daredevil lifestyle, the Virgin business, his desire to go into space... The Webcast ties-in with the official opening of the online version of music retailer Virgin Megastore in the US, although music buffs in the UK will have to wait a little longer before the store is open for business this side of the pond. Branson is no mystery to facing the cameras. Apparently, he has a part in the new Austin Powers movie, The Spy Who Shagged Me. ®
