DotCom bubble version 2.0.

It's kind of nuts for company that currently is making a $100 million dollar loss and that has no real business model other than hope ppc and impression advertising is going to pay for everything at $10 billion.

Facebook had the same problem and is only just now turning a profit based on revenue from advertising, the question is whether it's sustainable long term.  Many sites have been #1 for awhile then died off in the long run (see yahoo, aol, icq, myspace, bebo etc).
