The Internet at 35,000 Feet, Circa 2005

I’ve been a long time fan and supporter of the work of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City. In the mid 1990’s, I was an “entrepreneur-in-residence” there, which was basically a fancy phrase for “consultant” (I spent a day a month working on a set of programs run by Jana Matthews called “Learning Programs for High Growth Entrepreneurs.”) One of the tangential things I was involved in was Entreworld – a web site on entrepreneurship sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation. It remains one of the richest sites on the web for learning about entrepreneurship and I recommend it highly.

Periodically I write an article for Entreworld. Recently, they asked me to write an article about a “35,000 foot view of the Internet today from an entrepreneur’s perspective.” I wrote the article on a flight back from visiting my wife in Paris – I thought the title was appropriate given that I was on a plane at around 35,000 feet up at the time. The article follows and can also be found on the Entreworld web site.
