WebMagic CEO Greg McLemore speaks on the NBC Nightly News correctly predicting the upcoming demise of hundreds of Internet companies while Amazon.com would survive.
Pets.com today announced that it has put up for auction an authentic Pets.com Sock Puppet on Amazon.com Auctions. Direct from Pets.com’s recent Super Bowl commercial shoot, the genuine Sock Puppet, one of only a few originals, is available for bidding beginning today through February 3. All proceeds from the sale of the Sock Puppet will go to Pets.commitment, Pets.com’s philanthropic program.
Amazon agreed to buy 50 percent of closely held Pets.com.
Greg McLemore, a founder of Pets.com who currently is senior vice president for business development, said Amazon was chosen as a major investor because ‘they have a lot of successful experience in electronic commerce.’
