"Those wondering when the technology sector will get off its
knees should pay close attention to what happens to tiny startup
Eazel Inc. over the next few weeks."
"The company is on the ropes, running out of cash, and could go
out of business within a month. But if Mountain View-based Eazel
manages to regain its footing and find the new investors it's
seeking, the little-known firm could play an enormous role in
restoring growth to core technology markets, not just for a year or
two, but for decades."
"If the company fails, however, it will be another ominous sign
for tech firms, and for Silicon Valley in particular. The company's
fate serves as a key marker of whether the tech community will
return to the long-range strategic thinking that was responsible
for its creation, or whether it will continue to fall prey to the
delusions that have been its undoing in recent years."
