The past year has been, well, interesting to say the least. IPO's announced, IPO's cancelled, financial consultants, bankruptcy lawyers, venture capital, monopoly money, a launch party one day, a liquidation sale the next. And what's going on with hvac.com?
Speaking literally, as of November 6, 2000, the site was still unoccupied (i.e., no site, no nothing). But to get the larger picture, let's recap: when my December 1999 article asked "Where is hvac.com?" apparently nobody cared. Back then, we talked about e-commerce, business process reengineering, and why the Web works for the hvac industry. The "basic" impression I was trying to leave you with then was, "Get on the Web."
