A Cyber-Death Recalled: Boo.com
The indefatigable Morbus, master of the dark, unquiet waters that constitute the disobey.com domain, e-mailed me with news that Boo.com has been dead for five years now. "Five years!" I replied. "Man, do I feel old."
From what I hear, Boo.com's founders have had, over the past five years, little luck marketing their hard-luck story to Hollywood and the book world. They did publish a book, but it did poorly. And their proposal for a big-budget movie based on their professional incompetence went nowhere.
Few people remember Boo.com today, and that's just how it is on the memoryless expanses of the Boulevard of Broken Links.
