2001: The Year Of The Dot Com Merge
from the consolidation-is-the-way-to-go dept
A look at some of the more popular deals in dot com land over the past year. It seems that with companies dying left and right, companies (and some people) made all sorts of deals to keep various brands or comapnies alive. Webvan may be gone, but Egghead and eToys live on (in brand only as parts of Amazon and KBToys). While people always talked about consolidation in the dot com hey days, it seems that desperation finally forced a lot of companies into merger sprees. Somehow, I would bet that it’s not over yet… After all, aren’t we still waiting for Barry Diller’s big move?
