Chegg CEO Dan Rosensweig talks about the tremendous expansion of the Internet when he worked for Yahoo! (as COO 2002-2006). After working in publishing for many years, it became clear to him that print media, radio, and television were on the decline as the Web was on the rise. Despite the fact that the dot-com economy had all but buckled, user numbers continued to grow during this period, and Rosensweig knew that it was just a matter of time until the business model caught up to user demand.
