They specialize, on having it all. It’s either doing well in one part of whole, or aiming for completeness.
Yahoo managed to set up its hologram and fill it in, in a balanced fashion multi-faceted, simultaneously just like an organic being. All its parts function, all at one time, covering every aspect of Internet presence and marketing. There was no chance left to failure, for all was taken into consideration at any given time.
They first built a foundation upon expertise, later infusing it with proportionately expanding creative mechanisms, mostly adhering to known business aspects and common sense for advancement. Just as a profitable business model needs be.
Can this be replicated?
Surely, just as a human can be nearly replicated through ‘generation’, another project could succeed. However, this project could not take place of Yahoo, for that space is occupied just fine. A new project aiming at completeness would have to be something with a higher abstract idea, something with a higher aim than just Internet presence and marketing, and most of all, this new project would have to show humanity pioneering ways of ‘overcoming’ their current dilemma and not just better ways of ‘managing’ it, or escaping from it, while using this Internet media in depth.
Can this new project be described? Yes, it will be utilizing high technology to prove that technology is unnecessary, while facilitating access to real power to all of human-kind.
First, let me assure you, that this project is under way. Its details will be accessible to its members only via usual log-in first, or you don’t exist. Yahoo is my pet peeve. On one hand I respect them for their services and way they accomplished their all-round business so well. Then, there is other hand. Since 1997, I have applied to be listed by Yahoo… I truly felt that rejection each time.
