Reasons For Dot Com Boom/Doom

from the pissst,-hey-buddy,-wanna-buy-some-dotcom-stock? dept

failed .coms

I am an American [not by choice] and it is fun hanging in the Silicon Valley…..
went to see a movie and ad after ad about new .com startups IPO friendly, full bar, groumet chefs, with strippers and no suits and plenty of cheap housing nearby. And you drool at these promises…….and then I wonder, should I leave my job and come down here? NAHHH. They no better and I would not want to be run by a company w/ 6 months experience and a CEO that is 3 years older then me. Sorry. I stick w/ my cool job with smart people running it and lots and lots of cool things to do.
