The Internet content business has been an interesting one to watch, because not many companies survived. C-Net and IGN are the only real pure-players I can think of. IGN was an interesting one because it grew out of some relatively independent gaming sites.
News Corp. bought them today for $650 million. All I can say is wow. I remember when they were nothing.
Now if only I could grow my content sites into that kind of empire and cash out!
