Probably all remember thriving website "prv.pl." Half of the Internet was her alias. She was a leader on the competition offering a much poorer wizards and free web hosting. Currently, the only tolerably operating service groups Pino, who had in his collection 7 titles which are the foundations of Polish Internet. About what happened to them, read this article.
From zero to millionaire
Browsing the once-popular Polish websites, I feel like I watched the landscape after the explosion of the atomic bomb. It seems to me that I see the ruins of buildings, which wasted potential. Buildings that have experienced violent implosion and left behind only the raw smell of crushed brick. The trip to the historical Precambrian layers of the Internet often is depressing. The one I made yesterday, forced me to a night of reflection. For more than four years on the home page of the Group Pino has not been credited or one literka. Not one word. This stagnation was initiated in early 2013, when we were informed about the insolvency of the group. It was valued by the Official Receiver for a modest 500 thousand. Golden. This amount was a blatant contrast the fact that the company has recently dominated the rankings Megapanel. He served Polish internet users truly innovative solutions, such as the Precambrian Internet. Already in 2004, Pino worked on original projects to measure today's Facebook, Blogspot, YouTube and Twitch.
Pino Group's achievements and her hairstyle from the previous decade
"Patrz.pl" is a service where you can publish, watch and rate movies. You'll find anything, what comes to mind: landscapes captured in the Bieszczady Mountains, advertising criminology at UTH or clip showing a cow running a remote-controlled bumper car. Some materials even been viewed 5,000,000 times. Unfortunately, the publishing on "Patrz.pl" Internet users, regardless of the possibility to upload HD, consistently maintained quality movies at 240p. Among other things, they are used by the site they experienced absolute degradation. Currently satisfying to "Patrz.pl" the result is about 30 views. So … some 166,000 times less than before. Similar emotions caused me to visit PinoTV. I remember starting my adventure with the Internet, I tried to lead their own television. It sounded very proud. PinoTV had advanced for its time tools streamowania. In the vast majority, around this site they focused regional journalists. Formed programs, entertainment, and even a musical. Their authors have fought for the favor of many gathered audience. It was the first real threat to the existence of traditional media in Poland. Today the portal is empty. While the intentions once its events while realizowało approx. 600 online television so now, 9 September at 19:39, do not run or one livestream. A similar fate befell the primitive social networking sites "Moblo.pl" and "osobie.pl." It is sad to look at forgotten by their ranking algorithms most popular users, in the first place is a woman last seen online 8 years ago. Indescribable view is her profile picture decorated by fashionable hairstyle in the previous decade.
Pino Group will remain in our memory
Dead silence there is also "Playa.PL", a service which was buzzing when regularly popping up on the reviews, codes and news from the world of games. And today? New post appears on average once a year. Amazingly followed a similar path, "spis.pl", which in the last month did not use even one stray surfer. Not one enthusiast what retro. Not one introvert who like to our class, looking for peace from the mainstream bustle. "Spis.pl" was covered in dust and oblivion. Few points out, that was the ancestor of the trench, which at present has one of the most active communities on the Web. Group Pino passed a series of setbacks. He committed many mistakes. He went bankrupt. But what she did for sure is enrolled in the history books as a precursor; Precambrian giant, which has long fought with American dinosaurs. We will remember.
