1998: Internet Bubbles
1999: Web Scramble
|Get Web or Get Out
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.
