Standard pattern for SEs, at least in Silicon Valley: growing
bureaucracy, egotism, and "portal dreams." Original techies get
disenchanted and leave. Louis Monier in AV's case. Second-rate
imitation tech types take over and try to deliver the CEO his
billion dollar IPO. Meanwhile search functions collapse.

Look for more in the coming year!
