Great post, DotCom!

>>But the real growth [in streaming media] will happen in 1999 when we start to see greater bandwidth in the home because of cable modems and DSL.<<

Bingo!

>>Does Real Networks qualify for Gorilla Status?<<

Nope. A company's products have to get to the tornado before it can be considered a gorilla. Until then it's a gorilla wannabe.

RealNetworks has terrific market share now, but there is still the possibiity that it will go the way of Netscape for the reasons you mentioned.
