Harry Max send these two links, here, and here. on web-based failures yesterday and they had me going down memory lane. From lamo things to Beenz to worthy ideas like WebVan. It is both funny and sad to see the absolutely crazy behavior we do. And so I remind you/me/everyone the simple lesson we must hold onto. Every successful company has to have a clear customer pain/problem that they MUST solve. No company, regardless of the zany notion or the fantastic technology succeeds without that.
