So boo.com went down the tubes (though the site still seems to be up). Boo hoo, who would have thought? But you know, this whole shakeup is a good thing. Perhaps people will start to realize that usability matters, that business models matter, that you can't just slap a www before a name and expect a company to materialize overnight like a fungus in a dark damp place. I hear it's gotten harder to get money around town these days. I hear that deals were pulled as pens were pressing down on papers. This is a good thing. Maybe people will turn their brains back on now and look to funnel money into interesting ideas and endeavors that actually improve the way we use the web.
