We continually emphasise trust as one of the key components of doing business on the web, and you need to work hard at it. Which is why the whole 'offshore sector' in Dominica makes me a little uneasy. Mainly because the one or two bad apples in the sector get the spotlight - I think of StockGeneration scam of a few years ago, and how it was the only time Dominica's ever been mentioned in Wired magazine.
I'd rather we were seen as a wired island rather then home to numerous dodgy schemes. At a time when we're seeking to encourage lots of e-business start-ups, we owe it to all the potential young e-business entrepreneurs here not to fuck it up for them even before they've started!
