The New York Times is reporting that the SEC is just now getting around to suspending trading of DrKoop.com and WebVan.com stocks. Apparently, both dot-com bubble casualties are being kept on life support in the hopes of being picked off by bargain hunters looking to jumpstart a public offering, or some such convoluted capitalistic plot.

Anyway, the whole thing kinda got me misty-eyed about the heady days of yore, when overpaid IT geeks right out of college spent their work days cashing in stock options and playing video games, instead of developing a realistic business model.

I had a sudden urge to order a bunch of groceries on the web, follow up with a toy-buying binge, and bring it on home with a visit to the hilarious hijinks on Z.com.

I had to settle for Ghost Sites: The Museum of E-Failure.

They're all there: 1click-vacation.com, Kozmo.com, and, of course, nrrd-e-grrlz.com.

Damn, now I'm getting all nostalgic for riot grrls.
