A short critique of "Boo 2" at Evolt.

A short critique of "Boo 2" at Evolt. With a change in business model at Boo.com comes a new problem: 'pogo purchasing,' in which each product must be ordered separately through different retailers.

A former Boo.com employee describes some of the challenges they faced

A former Boo.com employee describes some of the challenges they faced. Multiple currencies, multiple languages, on-the-fly tax calculation, integration with multiple fullfillment partners, no development plan, and ignorance of technology issues on the front end. Blech.

What hasn't been noted much on the DEN and boo.com closings

What hasn't been noted much on the DEN and boo.com closings is the high-bandwidth aspirations both sites trumpeted. No doubt this is why much of Metafilter's readership is privately reveling in these failures. They subtly reinforce the Web's "minimum" ideals -- keeping multimedia to a minimum, minimizing file sizes and download times, letting the minimalist purity of HTML reign supreme. Should this really make us happy, though? I'm a big supporter of fast browsing and markup-language standards, but aren't we missing the point when we secretly root for the bleeding edge to fail?
