What are the chances that we are in the midst of a second tech bubble?
henyfoxe 2 years ago
Most of us probably remember the tech bubble of the 90s, when you could pretty much add .com to the end of any word and get start up capital thrown at you by the millions. I may be exaggerating, but not by much. Unfortunately, that "tech bubble" burst, and a lot of people lost a lot of money as a result. It seems that we are seeing a lot of high profile tech IPOs recently, and once again millions, nay billions, of investment dollars are flooding in. I can't help but wonder if we are seeing history repeat itself, and another crash down to reality is going to occur, with lots of people loosing lots of money, and legitimate start-ups faced with difficulty obtaining funding as a result. Am I paranoid, or is my spider sense tingling valid?
