  1. Well beyond our wildest dreams!

    I remember my first quarter in the Internet ad business at DoubleClick. That was Q4 1995. The total market was just north of $75M for that quarter. We were a pure media rep in those days owned by and ad agency. Our first ad network buy was $7K in April 1995. No one had ever heard of GoTo or Google.

    Amazing!
