Inktomi's Wild Ride

Earlier this week I went to a talk by Eric Brewer, a professor here at Berkeley and a cofounder of Inktomi. He gave a really interesting talk about incubating a startup at a university, spinning it off, (most interestingly) attempting to lead it through the tech bubble and subsequent crash, and finally selling it off (to Yahoo).

He gave a supposedly very similar talk "Inktomi's Wild Ride: A Personal View of the Internet Bubble" at the Computer History Museum. They have the video online.
