As I noted, USENETwas designed to have redundant feeds. Every site could get the newsfrom diverse sources, and if offered an article that had already beendelivered, it'd simply decline it. As such, we were capable of builda absolutely redundant news processing room, and have each system theone in Silicon Valley and the one in Waterloo, Ontario independently feedthe news to the buyer. They would accept it from whoever provided itfirst. We were capable of switch from one nation to an alternate with no ahiccup, and in fact now had a system through which either city could benuked and the inside track would proceed to flow. More in this later. During my ownership, we didn't switch to ads. There weresome sites with fancy ad sales forces capable of run ads and get highCPMs for them for a long time, but that was transitory. Only when Googleand Overture came along did a very sustainable ad model arrive. Idon't know if it was a right determination or not to wait see you later. Fromthe standpoint of crazy market valuations, it was a bad idea, sinceadvertising gave you this nebulous but large upside, as long as peoplebelieved in it.
