Something's not right about the date for Builder.com[edit]

The date, 2002, given for the launch of Builder.com (CNET Years) doesn't make sense. I was a senior editor for Builder.com starting after CNET bought ZDNet. I was in that position for about six months before CNET bought TechRepublic.com and closed Builder.com. The year was 2001. They were going to lay off the entire Builder.com staff on the week of 9/11/2001, but opted to wait a week because of the events of 9/11. I read the press release cited, but do not understand how Builder.com could have been launched in 2002, when it was already up and running when I joined CNET, and was shut down in late 2001.
