A massive Internet strategies company, which aims to control the masses of content on-line in much the same way that AOL and Microsoft want to. Indeed, if either want a major player in Spanish-language media, they may very well buy Terra. Its network of sites is called the Terra Lycos Network, named after its high-profile acquisition of Lycos in 2000.
The sites are:
- Terra.com - a large Spanish-language portal, similar to Excite@Home except that it isn't bankrupt
- Lycos.com - a search engine-turned-portal developed originally in 1994 at Carnegie Mellon University
- AnimationExpress.com - a place for independent animators to share their creations
- Angelfire.com - a free web hosting company, which competes with Geocities and Tripod, among others
- A Tu Hora (at your hour) - sort of like Kozmo, this is a site which delivers food, drink, and entertainment (movies, etc) to people's homes in major cities within one hour.
- Gamesville.com - an on-line gaming site which gives away prizes
- Hotbot - a search engine (note that they own two search engines in English alone)
- htmlGEAR.com - a content delivery software/services enterprise
- Invertia.com - a financial portal concentrated largely in South America
- Lycos Zone - think Lycos for children
- Matchmaker.com - an on-line dating community
- Quote.com - a financial information site, largely focused on the U.S.
- Raging Bull - a message board site for people to promote
pump and dump legitimate stock market tips
- Rumbo - a travel portal for airlines, hotels, rental cars, etc.
- Sonique - a somewhat popular music player chiefly for Windows, known for its outrageous skins.
- Tripod.com - a free web hosting provider which competes with Geocities, Angelfire (also a Terra Networks site), and others. Uses pop-up ads extensively on user sites.
- Web monkey.com - a community "by Web developers for Web developers," which provides useful information and tutorials.
- Whowhere.com - an Internet directory site for e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and street addresses.
- Wired News - the on-line counterpart to Wired magazine.
