I live in Silicon Valley. I saw the whole rise and fall of the Roman Empire, so to speak. A lot of friends of mine worked for some of the companies listed here.

I used to work for Peapod, which was the competitor of Webvan. It did pretty well and it`s still around. It`s just that they use a warehouse to stock their products instead of sending out `shoppers` in regular grocery stores.

Maybe I need to put a big "WARNING: Reading Requried" on these kind of links so people don`t accidentally click and get disappointed.

Why don`t you ignorant, in-bred, gape-mouthed, fashionista, IPOD-toting, approval-addicted, mall-walking, IMing, MTV-worshipping, nonconformist-conformist trend whores stay offline? Shouldn`t you all be gossiping about your third period teacher right now?

If you can`t be bothered to read, don`t click on the link.

Welcome to the apocolypse--people too lazy to read the links they click on.
