"The new Netrepreneurs" (e.biz, Cover Story, Oct. 1, 2001)
"The new Netrepreneurs" (e.biz, Cover Story, Oct. 1) erred in saying CNET Networks Inc. received "a paltry $5 million" from NBC for Web portal Snap.com. NBC paid $5.9 million for 19% of the portal, and then later paid $32 million for 60%, taking control. Later, after NBC merged Snap.com with other Internet assets and took them public as NBCi, CNET sold its shares in that company for $112 million. In "Strong words. Tasty, too" (e.biz, Oct. 1), a quotation by Geoff Yang of Redpoint Ventures was accompanied by an incorrect photo. Here is Yang's photo as it should have appeared.
