    Inktomi's wild ride: A personal view of the internet bubble

    IPO June 10, 1998

    Opens at $18, closes at $36. Later the peak was at $241

    They made one of the first searchengines, Hotbot. An interesting note how Microsoft didn't recognize the importance of searchengines in those early years...
