Yahoo! News reached 40 million unique users per month recently. Today I was sitting around the conference with my co-workers chewing the fat.
When we think in large numbers, there are many parts of our distribution network that we can extend. What if we built a distribution network to place real time election results, or real time breaking news to allow bloggers to distribution that information. What if we were one of the only news sites that can scale to handle 100 fold traffic during a 9/11 type of event. What if 1/4 of the world needed to know about a catastrophe at the same time, would Yahoo! News step up and serve them? What if we could serve 500 million people, how about 1 billion people?
Dream big guys.
