What we wanted to do was spill boiling oil onto the heads of our enemies as they attempted to bang down the gates of our village.But as everyone now knows, we had some problems, primarily technical problems, that prevented us from doing what we wanted to do the way we had hoped to do it. There’s little suspense in the story—the disastrous outcome is obvious from the first paragraph—but it works because of the poignancy of the apology.All of us have screwed up situations in our lives so badly that we’ve been forced to explain our actions by reminding everyone of our good intentions.

With apologies to Carlson: What we wanted to do was to build a tool that made it easy for everyone, everywhere to share knowledge, opinions, ideas and photos of cute cats.As everyone knows, we had some problems, primarily business model problems, that prevented us from doing what we wanted to do the way we hoped to do it.What we’re asking for today is a conversation about how we could do this better, since we screwed up pretty badly the first time around. From 1994 to 1999, I worked for Tripod.com, helping to architect, design, and implement a website that marketed content and services to recent college graduates.When that business failed to catch on, we became a webpage-hosting provider and proto-social network.Over the course of five years, we tried dozens of revenue models, printing out shiny new business plans to sell each one. Take a share of revenue when our users bought mutual funds after reading our investment advice!Get paid to bundle a magazine with textbook publishers! At the end of the day, the business model that got us funded was advertising.The model that got us acquired was analyzing users’ personal homepages so we could better target ads to them.Along the way, we ended up creating one of the most hated tools in the advertiser’s toolkit: the pop-up ad.It was a way to associate an ad with a user’s page without putting it directly on the page, which advertisers worried would imply an association between their brand and the page’s content.Specifically, we came up with it when a major car company freaked out that they’d bought a banner ad on a page that celebrated anal sex. Cegłowski’s speech explains why Tripod’s story sounds familiar.I wrote the code to launch the window and run an ad in it. Advertising became the default business model on the web, “the entire economic foundation of our industry,” because it was the easiest model for a web startup to implement, and the easiest to market to investors.
