eobanb writes "It seems like the much-ridiculed Myspace.com came out of nowhere. A couple of years ago, hardly anyone had heard of the site, and now some people can't get enough of it. But where did it really come from? And why is it growing like a virus? The origins of Myspace are mysterious, but with enough research, it would seem clear that those origins aren't entirely legitimate: "eUniverse, the company that essentially created MySpace, was a pioneer in this field. Headed by CEO, founder, and Chairman Brad Greenspan, eUniverse (now Intermix Media), was a multimillion-dollar marketing and entertainment company known for sites like Skilljam.com, pop-up advertising, unsolicited mass emails, spyware, and the adware behind controversial peer-to-peer file sharing network Kazaa.""
