This isn't just my recollection of what Mike said in 2001, the news item 
I quoted was printed in 2001. So even if it's a mistaken memory (of the 
late 90's), it was a mistaken memory captured in 2001.

I mentioned it simply as a fairly contemporary reference to the meme.

Having said that, doubling every 9 months was approximately the growth 
that LINX was seeing at the time.
