The Osborne Computer Corporation officially announced the Osborne Executive portable computer, the follow-up to its extremely successful Osborne 1. This is the computer that according to lore, took down the company. Known as the Osborne Effect, the legend is that by leaking the announcement of this computer earlier in the year, dealers cancelled all orders for the Osborne 1, effectively destroying the company’s cashflow and hindering operations going forward. This resulted in the cancellation of the company’s IPO and eventually to bankruptcy.
Business Computer Network had this concept to provide free software (ala AOL), free modem (yes free), to any and all PC enthusiasts and hopefully professionals (B2B). The idea was to index (spider) vast online information services (content/data) and provide a means to search (search engine) the index and make it very easy to access a wide array of information (web). We made it cross platform by designing a common viewing framework (browser) that would interpret a markup language (HTML/XML).
