Before Kevin Systrom and Mark Zuckerberg, there was Todd Krizelman, one of the youngest Internet sensations of the first dot com boom. In 1995, as a 20 year old student at Cornell, he cofounded a social media company called TheGlobe.com, based in New York City. TheGlobe.com allowed users to engage with one another through chat and games, while also being able to publish their own web pages. On its first day going public, shares flew from $9 to $97! But, in 2 years, the stock would only be worth $2.

This fantastic profile piece is a great read about Todd, how he overcame obstacles, the origination of MediaRadar and our current success.
