If GeoCities became a Social Network Site…..

Last night I was on System Showdown talking about tech. They asked my thoughts on the Microsoft/Yahoo merger. I basically shot from the hip and said that Yahoo should stop “Dropping Landmines” and focus on not being bought out by restructuring.  It got me to thinking again on what Yahoo could change. I remembered that some time ago, I talked about what Yahoo could do to turn things around. One of the things I mentioned was if Yahoo Geocities became more of a Social Networking Hybrid.

What do all of these items have in common, well, they all are or will be shutdown. The internet grows daily – new websites start, and new websites fall.  Sometimes you can pick up the pieces and turn it into a profit, sometimes it’s just a name in the dust. On Monday, DivX Stage 6 – a popular video website and used to pirate a lot of videos, has decided to close it’s doors on Feb 28th. The site let users upload their favorite videos to share. Some of them were legal, home-made videos. Others were pirated movies and television series. You could watch them right there, or you could download them and watch them later – considering if you had installed the DivX codecs. –Hear the...
