1998: Internet Bubbles
1999:  Web Scramble

Get Web or Get OutTm.jpg (743 bytes)

Fearing that by remaining ignorant of the scramble for position on the Internet that they would miss out entirely, a number of immense companies are only now waking up to the idea that they face two choices: Get Web or Get Out...

As a result, traditional market dominants, including AT&T, Walt Disney and Microsoft; are now doing all they can to get a foothold in this zero-gravity sector, primarily by purchasing or merging with those companies that powered the Internet to its current level.

While 1998 was the year of Internet companies rising in market capitalization as bubbles to the top of the financial world, we suggest that 1999 will be the year of the sleeping giants, who now awake, will mark their positions in the industry. By merging with these Internet bubbles, these real-world giants have become a significantly more attractive subject to Internet area investors while at the same time incomparably solidifying the Internet bubble's overall stability.
