History[edit]

CMGI was an Internet company that became a "poster child" for the dot-com collapse.[2] It held naming rights for New England Patriots home CMGI Field (now Gillette Stadium) from 2000 to 2002.[2]

CMGI acquired Modus Media in 2004.[3] CMGI's SalesLink supply chain business was combined with Modus under the name ModusLink.[3]

In 2008, CMGI changed its name to ModusLink Global Solutions.[4]

The company maintained a number of internet ventures over its history, including 1stUp.com, AdForce, AltaVista, BookLink, iCast,[5] NaviSite, PowWow chat instant messenger, RagingBull.com, and Yesmail.
