Mark Cuban sure does. He posted his memories of the early online content site in his blog this week, including video from 1999.

“We were serving audio and video live and on demand to more than 1mm unique users per day in 1999. I don’t even remember how many audio and video files we served per day, without 100mb or 10min limits, encoded up to 700k,” he wrote.

Cuban noted it is nine years since “we went public with what was then the biggest first day jump in stock price in IPO history. ... Just think if we had put up a discussion forum and called ourself a Social Network.”

He also includes the PowerPoint demo from his IPO presentations in 1998.
