Wow, 11 years ago we had a great idea...

This post reminded me about the our group @POSTnet.

In the spring of 1997, Winamp was released. It spread through the office like a virus. As a group of tech support reps, we had very little work that required real attention. That meant we had lots of time to talk, never mind our constant IRC usage, we had a great idea for a portable media player for this new music format: MP3s. I think had we been in an area with real VC and a business minded coworker, we could have been a dotcom bust or the ipod... oh well.
