  1. Maybe we can take 1 start-up everyday and discuss about them (rojo.com for RSS, damaka.com for VoIP, pandora.com for Music, meebo.com for Ajax-IM)

    Thanks for thinking differently and stretching our imaginations – thats what keeps me coming back.

  2. Not sure if burying GYM is a good idea considering how much we hate AND love them and depend on them. Its like a parent-child relationship where no matter how much the child hate the parent, they are almost always looking up to them for everything. I don’t think there is a day that passes by when I don’t use G and M. Ooops, I am not supposed to talk about GYM. Sorry. Don’t bury me…

  3. Couldn’t agree with you more. There is so much innovation and exciting stuff happening around us that deserve attention. you carry the baton and lead the way like you always do… πŸ˜‰

  4. The first rule of GYM is, you do not talk about GYM.
    The second rule of GYM is, you DO NOT talk about GYM. πŸ™‚

    I really wish I could obey this. But it’s either GYM or another social networking/photo sharing Web 2.0 site. Sigh.

  5. We can probably cease talking about GYM but the bigger question I’m thinking is, can we _be_ without using GYM for a week?
    Om, maybe you could ask your readers to try this as a challenge. Ask them to give up using products/services from these 3 companies for a week. Get them out of their comfort zone. What alternatives do they eventually turn to. Allow them to do a guest post at the end of the week..

  6. This is a classic catch22. Spreading the no-GYM meme only increases our ‘precious attention’ towards GYM.

    To get to a real no-GYM point (which would be increddibly nice), we need nothing short of personal campaign conducted by op leaders around the world with clear dates to start the no-GYM period!

  7. I’m all in favour of focusing on the little guys for a while.. *cough* πŸ˜‰

    However the little guys are mostly dreaming about that mystical ‘exit’ involving GYM so you know even if nobody TALKS about GYM we are all certainly still THINKING about GYM.. anyway be careful not to stop talking about them for too long since the hype needs to be maintained otherwise the bubble will collapse again! πŸ˜‰

  8. confession time guys – the GYM addiction is worse than my nicotine addiction. I have started and scrapped three posts…. and chanted… self control …

  9. If you add eBay, Amazon and AOL (GEMAYA – cornered by Dan Farber), then you get all the usual suspects. Though you might want to add NewsCorp based on their stated acquisitive mindset.

  10. I’ve been living on a diet of nothing but M for a while now… of course, I do have a Yahoo messenger account, but I use trillian. Does that still count?

  11. If you visualise all thoughts of GYM being outside your mind, or trying to get into your mind(/head), then you can reject them, visualise them as being thrown back as if by a forcefield. Pretty soon you will be GYM-free. If they try to come back, reject them again. It works!

  12. My son dragged me into the Palo Alto Apple store to try to cleanse my mind! Heh!

    We also went to Fry’s to look at HDTVs. If you guys are missing what’s going on in HDTV land, you better pay attention. Best Buy and Fry’s were both packed with people buying $3,000 TVs. That’s a big opportunity.

  17. For obvious reasons I love the acronym (I write a techy fitness blog)…. however with that said, I’m more of a “G” girl. I visit google daily… I visit Yahoo as a second option only when I didn’t find enough on a subject… and I visit Microsoft once or twice a year only to verify links.
