The New Boom, A Little Old

Chris Anderson of Wired wrote a short piece on what he describes the New Boom. It is an interest assembly of stats and observations, but it doesn’t delve into THE WHY OF THIS BOOM? For that I suggest you check out two stories we did in Business 2.0 – How To Ride The Fifth Wave? that appeared in July 2005, and our November 2005 story, Tech’s Big Comeback. In many ways The New Boom, is almost half way done, and we have some insanity going on right now. If you were looking for signs of excessive froth – don’t go too far. Just flip the pages of the same Wired issue, and read the story on a Mayfield partner who has a 24-year-old flipping through old magazines looking to revive some of the ideas. (Would You Buy a Used Dotcom from this Man?) If that ‘s not a top, then well…. $150 million buyout offer for would certain be that!
