“The Internet is more about focusing on the opportunity, not the risk. As a result, you have a lot of people more focused on growing top line instead of controlling bottom line. If it works, I think this type of thinking leads to huge companies. If it doesn’t, you get flameouts or buyouts.”

Excite senior VP and cofounder Joe Kraus, quoted in Chris Tacy’s New York Times CyberTimes column, 24 September 1997
