New dotcoms?

There are some interessting thoughts out there about new dotcoms or [new rules enterprises][2]. I wonder what’s so new about it? Using the most possible automated IT has always been a directive for IT in the past and throwing the credit cards in a bowl and work six months for free seems also be “old school”… So, to me it seems to be a revival of plain old family business.
