Opening the Floodgates… Again!

Posted: August 18, 2005 in Uncategorized
John reminded me that Netscape turned ten years old on Aug 9th.
 
Time flies, eh?
 
Netscape, of course, should be remembered as the little company that opened the floodgates to the entire online world.
 
Almost exactly ten years later, Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU) — a little company many are calling the Chinese Google — is opening the floodgates to all of China.
 
True, both were not the first or the only. 
 
But, history will look at both upstarts — with small revenues on torrid growth paces with seemingly outrageous market values — as the companies that popularized the major commerce movement of their time.
