Interesting Wired article — a VC trying to dig up all the old dotcom ideas to see which ones may fly now. Essentially the environment has changed with more broadband, consumers willing to buy on net, effective internet search, and lo! eyeball revenues in terms of Adsense.

Interesting thought, and an exercise absolutely worth doing. I just would be cautious of that last one… Remember “context of advertising” — just putting an ad on a page is not remunerative enough.
