"In 1994, Barksdale had to resign from AT&T to accept an offer from Clark to be Netscape's CEO. Barksdale flew to New Jersey to tell AT&T's then-CEO, Robert Allen.

"Bob Allen told me I was nuts," Barksdale recalls. Three years later, Allen resigned, his company flailing. Dozens of big-name, big-company executives followed Barksdale's path to Internet companies."

My first 4 .coms were registered in '95 and, get this, they were free. That was in the Mosaic Era.
