Yahoo Helped By Failing Dot Coms
from the climbing-on-the-corpses dept
By now you’ve probably read elsewhere about Yahoo’s strong earnings. Here’s an interesting article, though, that points out why all these failing dot coms may have helped to make Yahoo’s earnings stronger. I agree with a large part of this analysis. I’ve always felt that the “dot com” space is not an “industry” of its own, but a tool that can help industries. It’s obvious that there is value in the internet, and I get nervous anytime anyone talks about an internet “industry” because they tend to automatically lump the good in with the bad.
