NASA and Google Announce New Research & Duopoly Center

google_ames.jpgGood thing Google’s planning to build up to 1.2 million square feet of new office and R&D facilities over at the NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, Calif. After all, it’s going to need it. Because, according to Sanford C. Bernstein analyst Jeffrey Lindsay, the company will soon be one half of the Internet duopoly.

In a report entitled “U.S. Internet: The End of the Beginning,” Lindsay argues that Google (GOOG) and Amazon (AMZN) will someday rule the Internet–more than they already do, that is. “We expect two players to continue to perform strongly, Google and Amazon,” Lindsay writes in the report. “Both Google and are still racking up annual growth rates in the 30% to 40% range, with only a relatively modest slowdown in sight.”

Sadly, the same cannot be said for Yahoo (YHOO) and eBay (EBAY), which are destined for consolidation. Yahoo, Lindsay says, will be acquired by Microsoft (MSFT), eBay by a Microsoft-like suitor.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
