i want my Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream and i want it now...

living in atlanta? missing kozmo? meet zifty! they're closed for the holiday today, but if you've got a hankering for snackage, movies or the essentials of life (and you live in cental atlanta), then zifty might just fill that portion of your life that's been empty since april 11, 2001.

has anyone spotted any other companies attempting to reproduce the kozmo experience on a low-coverage, one-city-only scale? even with all of its instant gratification, does this idea really stand a chance?

KozmoPr0n! Problem: You're ready to rub one out, but the adult video store is a lengthy 2 blocks away! For those of us living in Manhattan or Brooklyn, quality DVD porn is now just a phone call away, a la Kozmo or UrbanFetch. (something tells me this place will stay in business a bit longer...)

While it's hard to say when the dotcom bubble began to burst, it's now officially clear when the internet stock bubble ended, which would be today. With the NASDAQ taking the first dip to 1996 levels, it's time to grab a Webvan-delivered 40oz out of your orange Kozmo-surplus bag and tip it in honor of all them Pets who still can't drive.

From the ashes, rises the phoenix. A company named WhyRunOut has taken over where Webvan left off (or they just bought my personal data from the webvan firesale). Hopefully they'll expand slowly and get profitable, it'd be nice to see Kozmo and Webvan like services come back.

A spam lawsuit is won

A spam lawsuit is won against now-dead delivery service Kozmo. It's a pyrrhic victory, as Kozmo is now dead and the award was only $77.50. But it should give us all hope.

Kozmo's website is back up

Kozmo's website is back up but this time with an interesting memo:
". . . any rental item you do not return by April 16,2001 will be deemed a purchase and your credit card will be charged the full retail value of the item."

the site came back up yesterday. not much notice for returns . . .

Kozmo is dead.

Kozmo is dead. I know they weren't making much money, they spent too much on advertising, and they were eventually going to go away, but they're possibly the most convenient and useful service on the web (amazon being the only thing close). I'm sorry to see them go, they were the greatest thing in the world when you're sick or when it's too late to go out for videos and ice cream (kozmo.com is unreachable already).

According to MSNBC, Kozmo delivers to predominantly white parts of town.

According to MSNBC, Kozmo delivers to predominantly white parts of town. This is a thorny issue all around. The company claims to target areas of high internet usage, but there's a whole host of factors that would lead to huge racial differences in those areas. I still believe one of the greatest things about the internet is that it's a place where race really doesn't matter, but unfortunately the barriers to entry aren't exactly colorblind. MSNBC went so far as to produce some interesting maps that support their claim pretty well though.
