It was a new market, anything seemed possible. A level playing field where entrepreneurs thrived , where ideas and invention were rewarded. No longer. We now live on an old school market where old brands that desperately fought against the creation of the net are heavily rewarded. Where new idea's are buried in a pile of black and white algo's . Where competition is thwarted. Where one search engine deem the survival of a site or idea.

Invention is stifled in Google's new market and the internet star buried in a mass of brands with poor websites.......

Did Google Kill the Internet Star?

Google created the Internet Star. Mobile is killing the Internet Star. But Mobile is primed for new stars.

I'm trying to stop conceptualizing the Internet the way it used to be in 2003. I believe building for and monetizing for 2003 style Internet consumption rapidly slipping away. Even Google is sprinting to catch up. It's 1999 all over again, but on mobile devices.

The problem with Mobile is that it is a bigger hurdle to jump over, and there are multiple gatekeepers that have to be contended with.
