E-Commerce Times Talkback
See Full Story
The demise of a stock ticker symbol does not have as much national and global
significance as thousands of lost jobs or millions of lost investment dollars.
But for the e-commerce romantic, it hurts
to see these symbols of bellwether online businesses disappear without fanfare.
It saddens me, to watch a chapter in my life fade away. I to loved the success, and the positive up-turn the dot COMís provided. I found a way to hold on to the dream that once was, framing my entire dot COM stock portfolio, looks COOL to me; my girlfriend thinks Iím weird. Personally I think that pets.com sock puppet looks great on the edge of my desk!
hysterical. rent the movie dot.com or start-up.com and see a couple of guys literally blow away millions of dollars that was borrowed from investors. it boggles the mind. if you did that with housing or credit cards, you would be forced to declare bankruptcy AND maybe go to jail.
i think i saw one too many companies come in with a vague notion of what they could do, but were more than willing to sell and take the money while they were at it. reality hurts, but at least no one gets taken for a ride.
