The Original Dot Com PR Firm Shuts Down

from the bubble-over? dept

On the same day that PayPal goes public (and actually does okay), it turns out that PR firm Niehaus Ryan Wong is shutting down. Niehaus Ryan Wong was famous for the way they hyped up Yahoo to amazing degrees in the early days of the bubble. I remember the articles about how they were geniuses. I also remember the articles about how incredibly expensive and arrogant they were (and how Yahoo would tell them certain clients they weren’t allowed to take). I think the death of the original dot com hype-meisters on the same day that a dot com (finally) went public, officially signals that we’ve moved onto the next phase of whatever mess we’ve gotten outselves into. Focusing on the bursting bubble is over. Now let’s see what’s next.
