夢想不敵寒冬,庫存不能當飯吃

哇靠網,是馬克的第二個網路創業網站,是台灣第一家以車用電腦為主題之購物網站,經營型態主要為車用電腦商品網路購物中心,主要銷售商品為針對多媒體車上用途之軟、硬體,客戶包含上市櫃公司至一般的消費者,而前身也是相同網址,但做的是旅遊同業網站,在1997年網路尚未泡沫前成立,比錸捷科技早成立6個月,是第一個旅遊業的B2B網站,出版內容橫跨網路及平面刊物,撐不到第二階段的B2B2C就彈盡糧絕,與幾位合作的好友硬生生賠了約600萬台幣,多年的感情也不歡而散。

網路泡沫後,深刻體驗槓桿原理不能玩太大,否則最後還是會撐不動而壓死自己,轉眼數年已過,年齡也即將步入而立之年,沉思多年後,反覆思考認為還是網路才是未來的希望,2004年,無意間發現國外有一票人在玩CarPC,台灣的網路資訊,唯一可以搜尋到的只有這篇Car+PC=CarPC,在沒有任何資源的條件下,開始與廠商洽談訂貨事宜,而,在這些主要做外銷的廠商眼中,沒有量,根本不算個咖,廠商外銷做都來不及,那有時間理我這個Z咖?

但,國外的相關論壇也好,購物網也好,幾乎都是這些台灣的廠商外銷的商品,實在沒理由再繞一圈再從國外進口,時間、進價、維修,都划不來,只好努力去盧這些廠商,拜託他們給我機會試試看(說到這裡,真要感謝M字頭公司的Amy,C字頭公司的Julieh,沒有你們,哇靠網還真的沒辦法開張!),主要商品談妥,接下來週邊商品可就商腦筋了,由於CarPC是一個根本沒人做過的行業,只能從國外的網站中找資料,幻想還有什麼是玩家需要的東西,也因此進了一堆雞肋,最後結果當然是賠錢出清。

2006年及2007年是CarPC最熱的二年,期間有無數中外媒體報導哇靠網的展示車(也就是馬克的愛車),並與青雲科技合作ComputeX的展示。

而這些,都不敵2007年Q4開始的景氣寒冬,眼看同業收的收、轉行的轉行,大廠的低價電腦一台接著一台出,即使有滿心的理想,也抵不過現實的命運,小馬克即將誕生,我這個做父親的總不能將機殼打碎餵他吃吧?

許多朋友給了我許多寶貴意見,謝謝你們,但這些不是馬克的專長,哇靠網截至今日,總瀏覽人數有8,742,775次瀏覽,而MPC有會員人數1,694人,馬克認為這二個數字(網站)必須再經過有系統的整合,才能有一個三贏的局面(站方、消費者、玩家)。

所以,哇靠網的服務自即日起暫停,公司營運並無任何改變,預計年後會以全新風貌登場。
