Oh, Baby. There Ya Go

As I Sit Here . . . wondering how to make money with this stupid site (whether it be The Blog or WiseCounty.com), I thought about Mark Cuban and how he became rich at the time of the inception of the Internet. First, I looked up how Cuban made his fortune when, his company, audionet.com/broadcast.com was purchased by Yahoo in the late 1990s. The figure astounded me. Out of curiosity, I looked up what Google payed for YouTube.com a couple of months ago. Here it is: Google paid $1.65 billion in stock for YouTube.com Yahoo paid Cuban and his partners $5.04 billion in stock for Broadcast.com
