Lately there's been a lot of speculation about whether the smaller Web 2.0 companies (e.g. Flickr, Bloglines, Feedburner, SixApart) will be able to foot it with the BigCo's (e.g. Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Amazon). Many people think the smaller companies will be acquired by the big co's - and this is actually a viable strategy for a smaller company - or be squashed by them. So it's refreshing to see one of the smaller company honchos come out and say: hey, we're not afraid of competing with Google.

Google’s earnings are on everyone’s lips - and with a reason. Read Google By The Numbers over at Business 2.0 website, and you will be impressed. What caught my eye was the amount of money Google generated from what it calls the “Google Network Sites,” and how it is basically helping foster a financial ecoystem. Google calls it “traffic acquisition costs.”
