Is Etsy the Next Google?
Haven’t even really processed this yet, but I like the boldness of the idea enough to pass it along: Is Etsy the next Google?
I will say I’ve heard more organic buzz about Etsy than any other company in the last several months — from real people, not tech-nerd blogs — and it’s only accelerated lately.
Update: Jason Kottke thinks “Is X the Next Google?” headlines are dumb, and he is probably right. However, as part of the proud tradition of Google-based hyperbole mining, I have a soft spot for them.
Update: “Hyperbole mining”? I don’t even really know what that means — it’s just the phrase that occurred to me, and it seemed right.
