Recently I have been having a regular day dream… well, it is more like fantasy.
It goes like this: I fantasize that I go back in a time machine to the year 1990, I am a child again, but I have kept all my knowledge of the Internet.
Here is the thing… for some reason I am only allowed to choose one idea to implement. What would you do? Bearing in mind you have seen the future.
By the way, buying domain names is not allowed, you have to create an actual site.
The obvious choice would be to create Google or Yahoo, but how would you do that? Do you know the inner workings of a search engine?
Then I thought about Digg.com, but I am not sure how effective it would be in the 90′s, also, you would get people copying you very early on.
It is the fantasy that seems to get more complex the more you think about it.
So what would you do if you could go back in time 17 years and you had to create one site?… bearing in mind that you would retain your current knowledge of the net.
Also, here is a weird thing: Imagine if you bought the Google.com domain in 1990, then the Google guys did their thing and noticed that Google was taken, so instead they used Googol.com, how weird would it be to own Google.com yet the world would perceive it to be almost worthless. Weird!
arrgggghhhhh, damn you Britney Spears… things were a lot easier when I just fantasized about her.
