Want to know how to make money in this internet age? The trick apparently is to completely fabricate sales. Apparently an internal Critical Path audit has found $13.4 million of announced revenue from last year that was completely made up. That accounts for almost 10% of their revenue. They also determined that of the $1.8 billion (admittedly mostly stock funny money) that they spent on companies last year, almost all of it is going to be written off.
