ebags.com? There's still a site called ebags.com? What, is it 1999 again?

That's beautiful. How long did it take you to find a handbag shaped liked an airplane? The first link has some of the most interesting vintage handbags I've ever seen.

The 9-11 bag is atrocious, both in theory and in execution. Some will see it as a tribute, some as a way of insensitively cashing in on a national tragedy.

some people see buying starbucks coffee, or nike shoes as cashing in a a national tragedy. How is this any different than earthquake shirts in California or anything else that commemorates a disaster?

Its a pretty a typical american response to hide in the dark things that make us afraid of the real world. Is a staunch reminder that we are now really a member of a world polictical situation (terrorism toward the west) that has been going on for decades really such a terrible thing?

perhaps by acknolleging these things happen we can get people to think about how our leaders policys effect our lives.

Ebags is one of the success stories of the internet: they kept their costs down, didn't grow too fast, didn't take venture capital, didn't go public, and are massively profitable. They're being sited as part of the new paradigm for ebusiness.

Wait, did I say paradigm?

And I misspelled "cited." I blame it on the spellchecker, it's making me soft.

I can't believe ebags.com's still going - I've still got their branded freebie bag from the May2000 "World Internet Summit" in Barcelona, kept for humour value.

-on preview: the joke's on me, they're "massively profitable" - who would have guessed?

I could interpret it that way except that it has an image of the explosion. How can that be seen as a tribute?

I thought ebags.com was surely a gay porn site.

Ebags! Yeah, talk about success story: they made money selling bags to other dot-coms! I've still got one from my former dot-com employer.

Ahem.
