Cuban: Internet is dead — it’s for old people

Mark CubanInternet entrepreneur Mark Cuban spoke at Cable & Telecommunications Association for Marketing meeting in Washington DC this week and declared that “The Internet’s dead. It’s over.” He also noted that “The Internet’s for old people.”

Cuban will be 49 next Tuesday.

“His basic point: The Internet has gone stagnant. The only “new application” on the World Wide Web of recent vintage was, in his view, YouTube — which, unlike Cuban’s Broadcast.com, ripped off the creative content of intellectual-property owners to build its video-based business.” (link)

Of course, he’s talking about the old Internet. You know, the one that’s not a truck but rather a series of tubes.
