The news of this is all over the net of course. I’m only mentioning it here because the numbers are astounding. In 19 months, a team of what was ultimately 56 people managed to create 1.6 billion in value in a company. Zero to 1.6 freaking billion, or roughly $28 million a person, in less than 2 years. One hopes numbers like this will wake up the content companies who are obsessively focused on locking their content away behind DRM – the market values open and free trading of content to a basically unimaginable extent.
