“The Network!” Newsletter Issue # 197

Is YouTube the next Google?

Now before you go laughing me into oblivion, let me remind you about some of the young companies The Network! has previously discussed:

  • AOL – You know the story
  • Netscape – August 9th, 1995 IPO, interestingly only 1/10th the size of Google
  • Mailblocks.com – Acquired by AOL
  • Netflix – I practically told you to get your VHS tapes from them
  • Linkedin – Keep your eye on it
  • Google – 8th largest IPO in history at the time, August 13th, 2004

Yahoo’s Treasurer just jumped ship to be the CFO at YouTube.com. As you probably know, YouTube.com, like its photo sharing predecessors Snapfish, Shutterfly, etc., allows you to post your video to the web, up to 10 minutes, which turns out to be a long time for an amateur video. No, I’m not calling you an amateur; I’m calling ME an amateur. I just posted my first video on YouTube.com go there and search for “Mom got a new car” and you can watch my Mom get her surprise new car for Mother’s Day that I wrote about in The Network! an issue or two ago.

Well, if you haven’t tried YouTube.com, try it and see if you think it’s the next Google. If it is, you heard it here first, once again in – The Network!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tell a friend!

“Be who you are and say what you will, those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
