The Death of a Company

December 18, 2006 at 10:00 am 6 comments

I learned late last week that perhaps the final daggar has been stuck in the heart of what used to be BlazeNet.  Customers received letters stating that there service was to discontinue as of 12/31/2006.  This could be the end of BlazeNet.

BlazeNet will live on thanks to the Internet Archive.  Here are one of the first and last BlazeNet Pages.

Wonder if Mike Scpanik ever looks back at his handy work?

    I currently working on shutting off the PRIs (modem lines) for BlazeNet.

    It makes me sad, and a little defensive when I have to talk to somebody about it.

    It’s bad enough that it’s going away, but to be the one doing it…

    I am currently working — that will teach me to proof read my comments first…

    Sorry for the design of the final BlazeNet site… it would be nice to go into the history books with something a little more visually appealing. The direction from Marketing was “Lenny Kravitz” and it all snowballed from there.

    The whole Sus-Pfz sale blew. The whole deal is just a shame.

    Brett, Lenny Kravitz? More like a Pheonix sports team. Maybe the Phx WNBA team website.
