Dejavuville? Dan Fost of the SF Chronicle profiles Louis Border’s (of bookstore fame and webvan infame) new “old” idea, Keep Media, something I described recently as a poor man’s Nexus. Louis tells Dan this is different than webvan because he learned it doesn’t take lots of money to launch something on the web. This time, he says, he only has 32 employees and some consultants, which suggests that Louis didn’t learn as much as he thinks he did from the webvan experience. There are some good quotes in the article, like when he says, “Prove the market, then grow.” Actually, I like the concept of Keep Media and hope it succeeds.
