Mortalita' Internet

Penso che possa essere interessante riaprire le danze con una iniezione di
realta' su quanti siano effettivamente i morti e feriti della web
decompressione...ovviamente le previsioni riportate sono da prendere con
le pinze con cui si maneggia il plutonio...

".... According to Webmergers.com's July Shutdowns Report,
32 Internet companies closed their doors or declared
bankruptcy last month. However, July's number of
"dot.bombs" is 30 percent less than June and the lowest
monthly total since September 2000. Despite the much
maligned dot.com collapse, the total number of failures
only represents between 6 and 8 percent of all dot.coms.
In addition, buyers have spent nearly $32 billion this
year to acquire Internet companies, a figure that aligns
with the tenacious optimism of many research firms
regarding the future of e-commerce. eMarketer predicts
worldwide e-commerce (B2C and B2B) will grow from $550
billion in 2001 to a whopping $3,203 billion in 2004;
and Forrester Research forecasts global e-commerce to
reach as high as $6,880 billion by that same year, just
to name a few.
