Just got back from Holmes County, and have a good bit of posts from that trip–among other things, I visited Raber’s bookshop, attended a New Order church service, and generally stayed out of trouble.  More to come.

But since it’s just out today, I wanted to share two things:  first, an Amish business article from CNNMoney.com.  It’s a nicely done piece by Geoff Williams, with contributions from a pair of Amish business owners, one in PA and one in Ohio.

Great quote from Ohio furniture maker Myron Miller:    “The smarter you get, and the more technology you use for your business, the more impact it has on families…”  The example he goes on to share is an interesting one.

I visited a bit with Myron while in Ohio.  He is very big on the issue of technology and how it can impact Amish society–especially the youth.

Also, there is a companion video, which was shot at a Pennsylvania Dutch market in York County, one which I often mention:  the Markets at Shrewsbury.  CNN came down for the day and we had a lot of fun.  You can find that video here.  You may recognize a few people!
