Heh, funny you should mention that. Was looking over my BBSucks page the other day and used "BNM" - almost forgot what it meant.

i'm reading an article in inter@ctive magazine that uses the term "clicks-n-mortar" to refer to businesses (such as borders.com) that have online and concrete presences

I was in a lecture on Monday that discussed whether University's should invest in BNM or concentrate their resources on technology, such as greater emphasis online classes. I thought it was cool that colleges and universities can have concrete and online presences too.

I wanted to make some statement of the difference between mortar and concrete, but I don't want to paint myself more of a geek.
