The Inktomi story is about a technology company on one of the wildest rides in the wildest era in the history of technology. After fast growth to the rare state of profitability, Inktomi joined the Nasdaq 100 as a representative of the Internet. Despite having real value, Inktomi was pulled down -- not by the dot coms -- but by the collapse of the telecom sector (including Worldcom and Enron). In this talk, Inktomi co-founder, Dr. Eric Brewer, covers the fascinating history of Inktomi, and gives an up close and personal view of what the Internet bubble meant -- both on the way up and on the way down. He shares his views on the Internet and on what a rational leader must do in an irrationally exuberant environment.
