If I had told you a year ago that a coupon website would ever be worth more than a billion dollars, you’d have told me “No way!”
But it’s true.
You probably heard that last week that Groupon.com shunned a bid by Google to buy the coupon site for 6 Billion Dollars. That’s right — Groupon turned down Google’s 6 Billion Dollar offer.
Why do I mention this?
Well, stranger things have happened. Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, even Google itself, all rose from the brilliance of someone’s brain to be worth many billions of dollars. They’re all ideas whose concept is so simple and whose purpose is so clear that it fills a void in the online world’s collective mind and habits.
I have a feeling it’s going to happen again.
