Boy, you raise $135 million

Boy, you raise $135 million in one year, and all you’ve got to show for it is being called The Dumbest Dot-Com by Fortune magazine. That can’t be good for the ol’ IPO plans. Of course, when your company is based upon the idea of your customers sucking you dry via a multi-level marketing scheme, there’s nowhere to go but up.

Odigo and AOL are duking it out over instant messaging. AOL blocks access to their service and Odigo re-establishes that access. While this must be a pain in the ass for the business people, I would imagine the tech people at both AOL and Odigo are having a ball playing their little game of keep-away. I can just imagine the cheers from the Odigo tech team when they break through the latest AOL roadblock, as if they just snuck one past Ed Belfour to win the Stanley Cup.
