               (b) Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement,
commencing immediately after the Effective Time, each certificate which,

shares of Company Common Stock shall evidence the right to receive shares

     Section 2.3 Cancellation of Excluded Shares. At the Effective Time,
each Excluded Share, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the
part of any Person, shall be canceled and retired, and no shares of stock

respect of such Excluded Shares.

     Section 2.4 Conversion of Common Stock of Merger Sub. At the Effective
Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of any
Person, each share of common stock of Merger Sub issued and outstanding
immediately prior to the Effective Time, and all rights in respect thereof,

fully paid and nonassessable share of common stock of the Surviving
Corporation.

     Section 2.5 Merger Consideration. (a) The "Merger Consideration Per
Share" shall be the fraction of one share of theglobe Common Stock equal to
the quotient of (x) the Aggregate Consideration divided by (y) the Fully
Diluted Company Shares (each as defined in Section 2.5(b)).

               (b) For purposes of this Agreement, the following terms
shall have the meanings set forth below:

                    (i) "Aggregate Consideration" shall mean the number of
     shares of theglobe Common Stock equal to the quotient of (x) divided
     by (y), where (x) equals (A) the sum of (1) $43,000,000 plus (2) the
     Aggregate Exercise Price less (B) the sum of (1) the Non-Permitted
     Indebtedness Amount plus (2) the Invoiced Transaction Costs plus (3)
     the Bonus Amounts (such amount calculated pursuant to this clause (x),
     the "Aggregate Dollar Consideration"), and (y) equals the Reference
     Share Price.

                    (ii) "Aggregate Exercise Price" shall mean the
     aggregate exercise price of all Options (as defined in Section
     2.8(a)), Warrants (as defined in Section 2.8(b)) and other securities
     convertible into or exchangeable for Company Common Stock (including
     the Demand Notes (as defined in Section 2.5(b)(v))) (collectively,
     "Convertible Securities") outstanding immediately prior to the
     Effective Time (which shall not include Convertible Securities being
     exercised in connection with the Merger) other than any such
     Convertible Securities with a per share exercise price that is greater
     than the Reference Share Price. For purposes of calculating the
     exercise price of the Demand Notes, the Demand Notes shall be deemed
     to have an exercise price of $0.

                    (iii) "Bonus Amounts" shall mean the aggregate amount
     of all obligations of the Company and the Subsidiary (as defined in
     Section 3.4(a)) incurred in connection with bonuses and other
     compensation arrangements arising out of the transactions contemplated
     by this Agreement (other than amounts arising out of the employment
     agreements referenced in Section 6.1(h) or any acceleration of the
     vesting of any Options).

                    (iv) "Fully Diluted Company Shares" shall mean the sum
     of (1) the number of shares of Company Common Stock outstanding
     immediately prior to the Effective Time (which shall include for this
     purpose any shares issued upon exercise of any Convertible Securities
     in connection with the Merger) plus (2) the number of shares of
     Company Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of any Convertible
     Securities with a per share exercise price less than the Reference
     Share Price outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time and
     not being exercised in connection with the Merger. For purposes of
     calculating the Fully Diluted Company Shares, the Demand Notes shall
     be deemed to be convertible into a number of shares of Company Common
     Stock based on the proportion that the total amount of Indebtedness
     under the Demand Notes outstanding immediately prior to the Effective
     Time bears to the Aggregate Dollar Consideration (such number of
     shares, the "Demand Note Company Shares").

                    (v) "Indebtedness" shall mean, without duplication, the
     outstanding principal amount of, and all interest, penalties, premiums
     and other amounts accrued in respect of, (1) all indebtedness for
     borrowed money of the Company or the Subsidiary, whether or not
     recourse to the Company or the Subsidiary, (2) every obligation of the
     Company or the Subsidiary evidenced by bonds, debentures, notes or
     other similar instruments, including, without limitation, the Demand
     Promissory Notes listed on Exhibit 2.5(b)(v) hereto (the "Demand
     Notes") and amounts owing pursuant to the Conveyance Agreement (as
     defined in Section 2.5(b)(viii)), (3) every reimbursement obligation
     of the Company or the Subsidiary with respect to letters of credit
     (including standby letters of credit only to the extent drawn upon),
     bankers' acceptances or similar facilities issued for the account of
     the Company or the Subsidiary, (4) every obligation of the Company or
     the Subsidiary issued or assumed as the deferred purchase price of
     property or services (but excluding trade accounts payable or accrued
     liabilities arising in the ordinary course of business), (5) every
     capital lease obligation of the Company or the Subsidiary, and (6)
     every obligation of the type referred to in clauses (1) through (5) of
     another Person and all dividends of another Person the payment of
     which, in either case, the Company or the Subsidiary has guaranteed or
     for which the Company or the Subsidiary is responsible or liable,
     directly or indirectly, jointly or severally, as obligor, guarantor or
     otherwise.

                    (vi) "Non-Permitted Indebtedness Amount" shall mean the
     aggregate amount of Indebtedness as of the close of business on the
     day immediately preceding the Closing Date, excluding all amounts
     owing pursuant to the Conveyance Agreement, dated as of August 1,
     1996, between Accursed Toys, Inc. and the Company (the "Conveyance
     Agreement") to the extent the unpaid amounts under such Conveyance
     Agreement are less than or equal to $5,079,737.90, and excluding all
     amounts owing pursuant to the Demand Notes.

                    (vii) "Reference Share Price" shall mean the average
     closing price of theglobe Common Stock on the NASDAQ National Market
     for the fifteen trading days immediately preceding the date of this
     Agreement.

                    (viii) "Transaction Costs" shall mean all fees and
     expenses of financial, legal, accounting and other advisors retained
     by the Company or the Subsidiary and all other out-of-pocket costs of
     the Company or the Subsidiary incurred prior to or at the Effective
     Time in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby; and
     "Invoiced Transaction Costs" shall mean any Transaction Costs with
     respect to which the Company or the Subsidiary has received a written
     invoice prior to the Closing Date. The Sellers and the Company agree
     that the Invoiced Transaction Costs shall not exceed $250,000 in the
     aggregate.

               (c) theglobe shall issue to each holder (a "Stockholder") of
a stock certificate which immediately prior to the Effective Time
represented Outstanding Shares other than Excluded Shares or Dissenting
Shares (a "Certificate"), the number of shares of theglobe Common Stock
equal to the number of shares of Company Common Stock represented by such
Certificate multiplied by the Merger Consideration Per Share upon receipt
by theglobe of the Certificate and a completed and duly executed letter of
transmittal in the form of Exhibit 2.5(c)(i) (a "Letter of Transmittal");
provided, that the number of shares issued and delivered to a Seller shall
be reduced by the number of Escrowed Shares allocable to such Seller.
Within 15 days following the Closing Date, the Company shall mail a Letter
of Transmittal to all holders of certificates representing Company Common
Stock together with the notice of action of Stockholders by written consent
in accordance with Section 228 of the DGCL. Each Seller has delivered an
executed Accredited Investor Questionnaire in the form of Exhibit
2.5(c)(ii) on or prior to the date hereof.

               (d) The Company and the Sellers shall deliver to theglobe no
later than the close of business on the business day immediately preceding
the Closing Date a certificate (the "Closing Certificate") setting forth
(i) the Aggregate Consideration, (ii) the Merger Consideration Per Share,
(iii) the number of Outstanding Shares, (iv) the total number of shares of
Company Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of any Convertible
Securities and the per share exercise price of each such Convertible
Security, (v) the Aggregate Exercise Price, (vi) the Non-Permitted
Indebtedness Amount, (vii) the Bonus Amounts, (viii) the number of Demand
Note Company Shares and (ix) the Invoiced Transaction Costs, in each case
together with reasonable backup thereto.

     Section 2.6 Cash in Lieu of Fractional Shares. Notwithstanding
anything in this Agreement to the contrary, no certificates or scrip
evidencing fractional shares of theglobe Common Stock shall be issued upon
the surrender for exchange of Certificates, and such fractional share
interests will not entitle the owner thereof to vote or to any rights of a
stockholder of theglobe. In lieu of any such fractional shares, each holder
of Company Shares upon surrender of a Certificate for exchange pursuant to
this Article II shall be paid an amount in cash (without interest), rounded
to the nearest cent, determined by multiplying (x) the Reference Share
Price by (y) the fractional interest to which such holder would otherwise
be entitled (after taking into account all Certificates held by such
holder). Any payment received by a holder of Company Shares with respect to
fractional share interests is merely intended to provide a mechanical
rounding off of, and is not separately bargained for, consideration.

     Section 2.7 Dissenter's Rights. Notwithstanding any provision of this
Agreement to the contrary, any shares of Company Common Stock that are
issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time and which
are held by a holder who has not voted such shares in favor of the Merger
nor consented thereto in writing and who shall have delivered a written
demand for appraisal of such shares in the manner provided by the DGCL and
who, as of the Effective Time, shall not have effectively withdrawn or lost
such right to appraisal ("Dissenting Shares") shall be entitled to such
rights (but only such rights) as are granted by Section 262 of the DGCL.
Each holder of Dissenting Shares who becomes entitled to payment for such
Dissenting Shares pursuant to Section 262 of the DGCL shall receive payment
therefor from the Surviving Corporation in accordance with the DGCL;
provided, however, that (i) if any such holder of Dissenting Shares shall
have failed to establish his entitlement to appraisal rights as provided in
Section 262 of the DGCL, (ii) if any such holder of Dissenting Shares shall
have effectively withdrawn his demand for appraisal of such shares or lost
his right to appraisal and payment for his Shares under Section 262 of DGCL
or (iii) if neither any holder of Dissenting Shares nor the Surviving
Corporation shall have filed a petition demanding a determination of the
value of all Dissenting Shares within the time provided in Section 262 of
the DGCL, such holder shall forfeit the right to appraisal of such
Dissenting Shares and each such Dissenting Share shall be converted and
exchanged in accordance with Section 2.2. The Company shall give theglobe
(i) prompt notice of any written demands for appraisal of any shares of
Company Common Stock, withdrawals of such demands, and any other
instruments served pursuant to the DGCL and received by the Company which
relate to any such demand for appraisal; and (ii) the opportunity to
participate in all negotiations and proceedings which take place prior to
the Effective Time with respect to any demands for appraisal. The Company
shall not, except with the prior written consent of theglobe, voluntarily
make any payment with respect to any demands for appraisal of Company
Common Stock or offer to settle or settle any such demands.

     Section 2.8 Option and Warrant Rollovers. (a) Each option, whether
vested or not vested, exercisable for shares of Company Common Stock (an
"Option") outstanding at the Effective Time shall, at the Effective Time,
be assumed by theglobe and shall thereafter constitute an option to
acquire, on the same terms and conditions as were applicable under such
assumed Option immediately prior to the Effective Time, a number of shares
of theglobe Common Stock equal to the product of the Merger Consideration
Per Share multiplied by the number of shares of Company Common Stock
subject to such Option immediately prior to the Effective Time, with an
exercise price per share of theglobe Common Stock (rounded up to the
nearest $.001) equal to the aggregate exercise price for the shares of
Company Common Stock subject to such Option immediately prior to the
Effective Time divided by the number of full shares of theglobe Common
Stock purchasable pursuant to such Option immediately following the
Effective Time; provided, however, that the number of shares of theglobe
Common Stock that may be purchased upon exercise of such Option shall not
include any fractional shares and, upon the last such exercise of such
Option, theglobe shall pay to the holder thereof an amount of cash equal to
such fraction multiplied by the Reference Share Price. theglobe shall
assume the obligations of the Company under the Company's 1996 Stock Option
Plan and shall comply with the terms thereof.

               (b) Each warrant, whether vested or not vested, exercisable
for shares of Company Common Stock (a "Warrant") outstanding at the
Effective Time shall, at the Effective Time, be assumed by theglobe and
shall thereafter constitute a warrant to acquire, on the same terms and
conditions as were applicable under such assumed Warrant immediately prior
to the Effective Time, a number of shares of theglobe Common Stock equal to
the product of the Merger Consideration Per Share multiplied by the number
of shares of Company Common Stock subject to such Warrant immediately prior
to the Effective Time, with an exercise price per share (rounded up to the
nearest $.001) equal to the aggregate exercise price for the shares of
Company Common Stock subject to such Warrant immediately prior to the
Effective Time divided by the number of full shares of theglobe Common
Stock purchasable pursuant to such Warrant immediately following the
Effective Time; provided, however, that the number of shares of theglobe
Common Stock that may be purchased upon exercise of such Warrant shall not
include any fractional shares and, upon the last such exercise of such
Warrant, theglobe shall pay to the holder thereof an amount of cash equal
to such fraction multiplied by the Reference Share Price.

     Section 2.9 Closing of Transfer Books. From and after the Effective
Time, the stock transfer books of the Company shall be closed and no
transfer of Company Common Stock shall thereafter be made.

     Section 2.10 Restructuring. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement
to the contrary, theglobe may, in its sole discretion, restructure the
Merger so as to substitute theglobe or any wholly-owned subsidiary of
theglobe for Merger Sub as one of the constituent corporations in the
Merger and so that the Company shall merge with theglobe or such other
wholly-owned subsidiary, with theglobe, the Company or such other
wholly-owned subsidiary continuing as the surviving corporation in the
Merger; provided, however, that no such change shall change the amount or
kind of consideration to be issued to holders of shares of Company Common
Stock as provided for in this Agreement. In the event of such
restructuring, the Parties shall promptly enter into any amendment to this
Agreement necessary or desirable to provide for such restructuring and in
connection therewith the Company and the Sellers shall reasonably cooperate
with theglobe by providing such customary representations as shall be
requested by theglobe supporting the qualification of such restructuring as
a reorganization under Section 368 of the Code.

     Section 2.11 Distributions With Respect to Unexchanged Shares. No
dividends or other distributions declared or made after the date of this
Agreement with respect to theglobe Common Stock with a record date after
the Effective Time will be paid to the holder of any unsurrendered
Certificate with respect to the shares of theglobe Common Stock represented
thereby until the holder of record of such Certificate shall surrender such
Certificate. Subject to applicable Law, following surrender of any such
Certificate, there shall be paid to the record holder of the Certificates
representing whole shares of theglobe Common Stock issued in exchange
therefor, without interest, at the time of such surrender, the amount of
any such dividends or other distributions with a record date after the
Effective Time payable with respect to such whole shares of theglobe Common
Stock.

     Section 2.12 Transfers of Ownership. If any certificate for shares of
theglobe Common Stock is to be issued in a name other than that in which
the Certificate surrendered in exchange therefor is registered, it will be
a condition of the issuance thereof that the Certificate so surrendered
will be properly endorsed and otherwise in proper form for transfer and
that the Person (as defined in Section 9.3(a)) requesting such exchange
will have paid to theglobe or any agent designated by it any transfer or
other taxes required by reason of the issuance of a certificate for shares
of theglobe Common Stock in any name other than that of the registered
holder of the Certificate surrendered or established to the satisfaction of
theglobe or any agent designated by it that such tax has been paid or is
not payable.

     Section 2.13 No Liability. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in
this Agreement, none of theglobe, the Surviving Corporation or any other
Party shall be liable to a holder of shares of theglobe Common Stock or
Company Common Stock for any amount properly paid to a public official
pursuant to any applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar law.

     Section 2.14 Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Certificates. In the event any
Certificates evidencing shares of Company Common Stock shall have been
lost, stolen or destroyed, theglobe shall issue in exchange for such lost,
stolen or destroyed Certificates, upon the making of an affidavit of that
fact by the holder thereof, the appropriate number of shares of theglobe
Common Stock and the appropriate amount of cash in lieu of fractional
shares, if any, as may be required pursuant to Section 2.6; provided, that
theglobe may, in its discretion and as a condition precedent to the
issuance thereof, require the owner of such lost, stolen or destroyed
Certificates to indemnify theglobe (including through the posting of a
bond) against any loss or cost incurred by or claim that may be made
against theglobe or the Surviving Corporation with respect to the
Certificates alleged to have been lost, stolen or destroyed.

     Section 2.15 Restricted Securities. The shares of theglobe Common
Stock issued in connection with the Merger will be "restricted securities"
under the Securities Act and Rule 144 promulgated thereunder and may only
be sold or otherwise transferred pursuant to an effective registration
statement under the Securities Act or an exemption from the registration
requirements of the Securities Act. It is understood that the certificates
evidencing the shares of theglobe Common Stock issued in connection with
the Merger will bear one or both of the following legends:

               (a) "These securities have not been registered under the
Securities Act of 1933, as amended. They may not be sold, offered for sale,
pledged or hypothecated in the absence of a registration statement in
effect with respect to the securities under such Act or an opinion of
counsel satisfactory to the Company that such registration is not required
or unless sold pursuant to Rule 144 of such Act."

               (b) Any legend required by applicable state Law.

               (c) Any legend required by Regulation S promulgated under
the Securities Act ("Regulation S").

     Section 2.16 Registration Rights. Holders of theglobe Common Stock
issued pursuant to this Agreement (including Persons to whom shares of
theglobe Common Stock may be issuable pursuant to Section 2.8(b) upon the
exercise of Warrants and pursuant to Section 5.17 upon conversion of the
Demand Notes) shall, as of the Effective Time, be entitled to certain
registration rights with respect to such shares as provided in the
Registration Rights Agreement to be executed and delivered by theglobe at
the Closing (the "Registration Rights Agreement") the form of which is set
forth in Exhibit 2.16 hereto, upon execution of the Registration Rights
Agreement by such holders.

                        THE COMPANY AND THE SELLERS

          The Company and each of the Sellers each hereby jointly and
severally represents and warrants to theglobe and Merger Sub as of the date
of this Agreement and as of the Closing Date as follows:

     Section 3.1 Organization. The Company is a corporation duly organized,
validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of
Delaware and has the requisite corporate power and authority to carry on

the nature of its business makes such qualification necessary, except where
the failure to be so qualified and in good standing would not, individually
or in the aggregate, be material. The minute books (containing the records
of meetings of stockholders, the Board of Directors, and any committees of
the Board of Directors), the stock record and certificate books of the
Company contain true, complete and accurate records of all corporate
actions taken at any such meetings and other corporate governance matters,
the stock ownership of the Company and the transfer of the shares of its
capital stock since the date of inception of the Company. Schedule 3.1
lists each of the directors and officers of the Company.

     Section 3.2 Authority. Each of the Sellers and the Company has the
requisite right, power and authority (and, in the case of the Sellers that
are natural persons, legal capacity) to enter into this Agreement and any
Ancillary Documents to which it is a party and to carry out its obligations
hereunder and thereunder. This Agreement has been, and each of the
Ancillary Documents to which it is a party has been or will be, duly and
validly executed and delivered by each of the Sellers and the Company and
constitutes, and each of the Ancillary Documents to which it is a party
constitutes, or will upon execution and delivery constitute, a valid and
binding obligation of such Person, enforceable against such Person in
accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by
applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, moratorium or other similar laws
affecting creditors rights generally or by general principles of equity.
All proceedings or other actions on the part of the Company and each Seller
necessary to authorize this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Documents to
which it is a party and the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby
have been taken. Each Seller is an "accredited" investor as defined in Rule
501 of the rules and regulations promulgated under the Securities Act.

     Section 3.3 Capitalization; Title to Shares. The authorized capital
stock of the Company consists of 20,000,000 shares of Company Common Stock,
of which 13,114,457 shares are issued and outstanding, and 5,000 shares of
Preferred Stock, of which no shares are issued and outstanding. The full
name and address of each Stockholder, and the number of shares of Company
Common Stock owned by such Stockholder, is set forth on Schedule 3.3. All
the issued and outstanding shares of Company Common Stock are validly
issued, fully paid and nonassessable and those shares of Company Common
Stock held by the Sellers are owned free and clear of any lien, pledge,
charge, assessment, security interest, mortgage, claim, option, easement,
imperfection of title, tenancy or other legal or equitable right of others,
or other encumbrance of any character whatsoever (including, without
limitation, right of first refusal) (each an "Encumbrance"). Except as set
forth on Schedule 3.3, there are no shares of capital stock of the Company
authorized, issued or outstanding, and there are no outstanding Options,
Warrants, or other Convertible Securities, subscriptions, rights
(including, without limitation, preemptive rights), stock-based or
stock-related awards or other contracts, agreements or arrangements (or
Commitments (as defined in Section 3.8(a)) with respect to issuance or
grant of any of the foregoing) to which the Company or any of the Sellers
is a party or by which the Company or any of the Sellers may be bound of
any character relating, or obligating the Company or the Sellers, to issue,
grant, award, transfer or sell, or based on the value of, any issued or
unissued shares of Company's capital stock or other securities of the
Company. Except as set forth on Schedule 3.3, there are no voting trusts,
proxies or other agreements or understandings to which the Company or any
of the Sellers is a party with respect to the voting of capital stock of
the Company. Each Stockholder that is an officer or director of the Company
or of the Subsidiary, and each Stockholder that holds 10% or more of the
issued and outstanding shares of Company Common Stock as of the date hereof
or as of the Closing Date, is a Seller.

     Section 3.4 Subsidiaries. (a) The Company does not own, directly or

#30573775 (the "Subsidiary"). Except as set forth on Schedule 3.4(a),
neither the Company nor the Subsidiary is a party to any Commitment to
purchase or provide funds to or make any investment (in the form of a loan,

validly issued and are fully paid or credited as fully paid, free and clear
of all Encumbrances. There are no outstanding options, warrants, or other
convertible or exchangeable securities, subscriptions, rights (including,
without limitation, preemptive rights), stock-based or stock-related awards
or other contracts, agreements or arrangements (or Commitments with respect
to issuance of any of the foregoing) to which the Subsidiary is a party or
by which the Subsidiary may be bound of any character relating, or
obligating the Subsidiary, to issue, grant, award, transfer or sell, or
based on the value of, any issued or unissued shares of the Subsidiary's
capital stock.

               (c) The Subsidiary is duly organized, validly existing and
in good standing under the laws of England and Wales and has the requisite
corporate power and authority to carry on its business as it is now being
conducted. The Subsidiary is duly qualified and licensed as a foreign
corporation to do business, and is in good standing (and has paid all
relevant franchise or analogous taxes), in each jurisdiction where the
character of its assets owned or held under lease or the nature of its
business makes such qualification necessary, except where the failure to be
so qualified and in good standing would not, individually or in the
aggregate, be material.

     Section 3.5 Financial Statements. (a) Schedule 3.5 sets forth (1) the
unaudited consolidated balance sheet of the Company and the Subsidiary as

anniversary of the Closing Date, except that the representations and
warranties set forth in Sections 3.6(b), 3.18 and 3.20(i) shall survive

period, in which event any representation or warranty to which such claim
relates shall survive with respect to such claim until such claim is

the Parties shall survive the Closing until performed in accordance with
their terms.

     Section 8.2 Indemnification by theglobe. (a) From and after the
Closing Date, theglobe shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the
Sellers and their Affiliates (collectively, the "Sellers Indemnified
Group") from and against all Liabilities, losses, damages, penalties,
claims (including third-party claims, whether or not meritorious), costs,
interest, judgments, fines, amounts paid in settlement and expenses
(including, without limitation, reasonable attorney's fees, whether
incurred in connection with a claim for indemnification hereunder or in
connection with any third party claim) (collectively, "Losses") incurred or
suffered by any member of the Sellers Indemnified Group based upon,
resulting from or arising out of (i) the breach of any representation or
warranty of theglobe or Merger Sub contained in this Agreement or any of
the Ancillary Documents or (ii) the breach of any covenant or agreement of
theglobe or Merger Sub contained in this Agreement or any of the Ancillary
Documents.

               (b) theglobe's indemnification obligations pursuant to
Section 8.2(a)(i) shall be effective only after the amount of Losses, in
the aggregate, incurred by the Seller Indemnified Group exceed $250,000,
and if such aggregate liabilities exceed $250,000, theglobe shall be liable
for all such Losses, subject to the following sentence, but only to the
extent such Losses exceed the initial $250,000. The maximum amount
recoverable by the Seller Indemnified Group, in the aggregate, under
Section 8.2(a)(i) shall be the aggregate number of shares of theglobe
Common Stock issuable in connection with the Merger or the repayment of the
Demand Notes (collectively, the "Issuable Shares"). theglobe shall make
indemnification payments pursuant to this Section 8.2 in the form of
theglobe Common Stock, and any such shares shall be valued at the Reference
Share Price.

               (c) The Sellers each acknowledge and agree that, except (i)
as expressly otherwise provided herein or (ii) to the extent any Losses
incurred by such Party result from any fraudulent misrepresentation by
theglobe, the Seller Indemnified Group's sole and exclusive monetary remedy
with respect to any and all claims based upon, resulting from or arising
out of the breach of this Agreement or any Ancillary Document by theglobe
or Merger Sub or (following the Effective Time) the Company shall be
pursuant to the indemnification provisions of this Article VIII (including,
without limitation, Section 8.1).

Closing Date, each of the Sellers, jointly and severally, shall indemnify,
defend and hold harmless theglobe, Merger Sub, the Surviving Corporation,
the Subsidiary and each of their respective Affiliates, officers,
directors, employees, members, agents, successors, transferees and assigns
(collectively, "theglobe Indemnified Group") from and against all Losses
incurred or suffered by any member of theglobe Indemnified Group based
upon, resulting from or arising out of (i) the breach of any representation
or warranty of any of the Sellers or the Company contained in this
Agreement or any of the Ancillary Documents, (ii) the breach of any
covenant or agreement of any of the Sellers (provided, however, that in no
event will any Seller be liable for any breach of the covenants contained
in Section 5.8 of this Agreement by any other Seller) or the Company (but
with respect to the Company only for breaches of covenants and agreements
to be performed prior to or at the Effective Time) contained in this
Agreement or any of the Ancillary Documents, (iii) any Indebtedness, other
than pursuant to the Conveyance Agreement and any portion of the
Non-Permitted Indebtedness Amount (including Indebtedness pursuant to the
Demand Notes) for which the Aggregate Consideration was reduced, incurred
prior to or at the Effective Time which remains outstanding at the
Effective Time (the Losses to include the dollar amount of any such
Indebtedness), (iv) the exercise of dissenters' rights by holders of
Dissenting Shares (the Losses to include the entire amount of any payments
required to be made by the Company in respect of dissenters' rights), (v)
any inaccuracies in the Closing Certificate, (vi) any claims relating to
shares of Company Common Stock issued, and warrants, options or other
equity awards granted, by the Company, and (vii) any claims relating to or
involving the treatment of any Options granted prior to the Closing Date as
"incentive stock options" within the meaning of Section 422 of the Code.

               (b) The Sellers' indemnification obligations pursuant to
Section 8.3(a)(i) shall be effective only after the amount of Losses, in
the aggregate, incurred by theglobe Indemnified Group exceed $250,000 (the
"Basket"), and if such aggregate liabilities exceed the Basket the Sellers
shall be liable for the dollar value of such liabilities in excess of the
Basket, but only to the extent such Losses exceed the Basket. The Basket
shall not be applicable to a breach of the representations and warranties
in Sections 3.3, 3.6(b), 3.18 and 3.20(i). The maximum amount recoverable,
in the aggregate, under Section 8.3(a)(i) from any Seller shall be an
amount in cash equal to the product of (x) the Issuable Shares issued to
such Seller multiplied by (y) the Reference Share Price (each, a "Seller
Cap"); provided, however, that the Seller Caps shall not be applicable to
amounts recoverable as a result of a breach of the representations and
warranties contained in Sections 3.3, 3.6(b), 3.18 and 3.20(i).

               (c) The materiality (or correlative meaning) qualifications
included in the representations and warranties set forth in Article III
shall have no effect on any provisions in this Section 8.3 concerning the
indemnities of the Seller with respect to such representations and
warranties, each of which is given as though there were no materiality
qualification for purposes of such indemnities.

               (d) The Company and theglobe each acknowledge and agree
that, except (i) as expressly otherwise provided herein or (ii) to the
extent any Losses incurred by such Party result from any fraudulent
misrepresentation by the Sellers or (prior to or at the Effective Time) the
Company, theglobe Indemnified Group's sole and exclusive economic remedy
with respect to any and all claims based upon, resulting from or arising
out of the breach of this Agreement or any Ancillary Document by the
Sellers or (prior to or at the Effective Time) the Company shall be
pursuant to the indemnification provisions of this Article VIII.

     Section 8.4 Escrow. (a) The number of shares of theglobe Common Stock
delivered to the Sellers at or following the Effective Time pursuant to
Section 2.5(c) or Section 5.19 shall be reduced on a pro rata basis by an
aggregate number of shares equal to ten percent of the Issuable Shares (the
"Escrowed Shares"). The Escrowed Shares shall be held in escrow pursuant to
an Escrow Agreement in the form attached as Exhibit 8.4 hereto (the "Escrow
Agreement"). At the Effective Time, theglobe shall deposit the Escrowed
Shares with the escrow agent (the "Escrow Agent") pursuant to the terms of
the Escrow Agreement. For such period of time that the Escrowed Shares are
held in Escrow, the Seller shall have all rights with respect to the voting
of such shares in connection with all matters coming before a vote of the
holders of shares of theglobe Common Stock.

               (b) Notwithstanding anything in this Article VIII to the
contrary, any claim by a member of theglobe Indemnified Group for
indemnification against any Seller shall first be satisfied by recourse to
the Escrowed Shares. Any claim by a member of theglobe Indemnified Group
for indemnification shall be made by giving written notice in accordance
with the terms of Section 8.5. In accordance with the terms of the Escrow
Agreement, the Escrow Agent shall release to the member of theglobe
Indemnified Group Escrowed Shares, as applicable, having an aggregate value
(with shares valued at the Closing Share Price) equal to the Losses, if
any, ultimately allowed under such claim. theglobe shall thereupon retire
(and hold in treasury) or cancel such released shares and, if the member of
theglobe Indemnified Group with respect to such Losses is not theglobe, pay
or cause to be paid such Losses to such member of theglobe Indemnified
Group.

               (c) For purposes of this Section 8.4 and the Escrow
Agreement, in view of the fact that successful claims for indemnification
will ultimately have the effect of reducing the number of shares issuable
to the Sellers, David Rae shall act as the representative and
attorney-in-fact (the "Representative") on behalf of himself and all of the
other Sellers, subject to the provisions of Section 8.4(d). The
Representative shall keep the Sellers reasonably informed of his decisions
of a material nature. The Representative is authorized to take any action
deemed by him appropriate or reasonably necessary to carry out the
provisions of, and is authorized to act on behalf of, the Sellers for all
purposes related to this Article VIII, including the acceptance of service
of process upon the Sellers and the acceptance or compromise of claims for
indemnification, and all decisions and actions of the Representative shall
be binding and conclusive upon the Sellers and may be relied upon by
theglobe Indemnified Parties and the Escrow Agent as the decision and
action of all of the Sellers.

               (d) The Representative shall not be liable to any of the
Sellers for any error of judgment, act done or omitted by him in good
faith, or mistake of fact or Law unless caused by his own gross negligence
or willful misconduct. In taking any action or refraining from taking any
action whatsoever the Representative shall be protected in relying upon any
notice, paper or other document reasonably believed by him to be genuine,
or upon any evidence reasonably deemed by him to be sufficient. The
Representative may consult with counsel in connection with his duties and
shall be fully protected in any act taken, suffered or permitted by him in
good faith in accordance with the advice of counsel. The Representative
shall not be responsible for determining or verifying the authority of any
Person acting or purporting to act on behalf of any party to this Agreement
or the Escrow Agreement.

     Section 8.5 Indemnification Procedure. (a) The party seeking
indemnification under this Agreement (the "Indemnified Party") shall
promptly notify the party from which indemnification is being sought (the
"Indemnifying Party") (or, if indemnification is sought pursuant to the
Escrow Agreement, the Representative and the Escrow Agent) of the facts and
circumstances upon which the Indemnified Party intends to base a claim for
indemnification hereunder ("Notices"). Notice shall in all events be
considered prompt if given (1) no later than 15 days after the Indemnified
Party learns of the facts upon which it will claim such indemnification or
(2) if earlier, in sufficient time to allow the Indemnifying Party to
exercise its rights pursuant to this Article VIII; provided, however, that
the failure to provide such Notice of claims promptly (so long as a notice
of claims is given before the date on which the applicable representation
or warranty ceases to survive) shall not affect the obligations of the
Indemnifying Party hereunder except to the extent the Indemnifying Party is
prejudiced thereby. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right, at its own
cost, to participate jointly in the defense of any third-party claim,
demand, lawsuit or other proceeding in connection with which the
Indemnified Party has claimed indemnification hereunder, and may elect (the
"Election") to take over the defense of such claim within 10 business days
following Notice thereof upon its written unconditional acknowledgment of
its obligation to indemnify the Indemnified Party with respect to such
claim; provided, however, that theglobe shall be permitted, at its option,
to require that the Sellers shall not take over the defense of any claim
brought by any Person with which theglobe or the Surviving Corporation has
a material business relationship against any member of theglobe Indemnified
Group for which indemnification is available pursuant to this Article VIII,
and upon exercise of such option such member of theglobe Indemnified Group
shall defend such claim, subject to the following conditions: (i) the
Sellers shall be entitled, in their discretion and at their expense, to
engage counsel and to participate in any discussions, meetings,
negotiations and other communications which may be held or conducted
between such member of theglobe Indemnified Group and such customer or
supplier, or their respective counsels, with respect to such claim; (ii)
such member of theglobe Indemnified Group shall consult with the
Representative before making or communicating to such customer or supplier,
or its counsel, any decisions concerning such member's strategy or position
with respect to the defense of such claim; and (iii) such member of
theglobe Indemnified Group shall not settle or otherwise dispose of such
claim without the consent of the Representative. If the Indemnifying Party
makes an Election, (x) it shall keep the Indemnified Party informed as to
the status of the applicable matter and shall send promptly copies of all
pleadings to the Indemnified Party, (y) with respect to any issue involved
in such claim, it shall have the sole right, with respect to claims or
portions of claims seeking monetary damages only, to settle or otherwise
dispose of such claim on such terms as it, in its sole discretion, shall
deem appropriate; provided, however, that the consent of the Indemnified
Party to the settlement or disposition shall be required if such settlement
or disposition shall result in or would reasonably be expected to result in
any Liability to, equitable relief against or adverse business effect on
the Indemnified Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or
delayed, and (z) the Indemnified Party shall have the right to participate
jointly in the defense of such claim, but shall do so at its own cost not
subject to reimbursement. If the Indemnifying Party does not elect to take
over the defense of a third-party claim, the Indemnified Party shall have
the right to contest, compromise or settle such claim in the exercise of
its reasonable judgment.

               (b) Notwithstanding any provision of this Article VIII to
the contrary, with respect to any third-party claim or demand that the
Indemnifying Party is defending, the Indemnified Party shall have the right
to retain separate counsel to represent it and the Indemnifying Party shall
pay the fees and expenses of such separate counsel if the Indemnified Party
receives and certifies to the Indemnified Party that it has received advice
of counsel to the effect that there exist sufficient conflicts that make it
reasonably necessary or appropriate for separate counsel to represent the
Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party.

               (c) The amounts for which an Indemnifying Party shall be
liable under Sections 8.2 and 8.3 of this Agreement shall be net of any
insurance proceeds received by the Indemnified Party (less the costs of
collection of such insurance proceeds) compensating the Indemnified Party
for Losses of the Indemnified Party for which the Indemnifying Party would
otherwise be liable pursuant to this Article VIII.
