It has recently occurred to me that if there is any keyword being thrown carelessly around in the technology world as of late it is “bubble.” Go on any blog within the past 10 or so months and I guarantee you’ll find something with the word combination’s web 2.0 bubble, social media bubble, technology bubble, internet bubble, software bubble, apps bubble, silicon valley bubble and of course a variety of other terms followed by the word, bubble. While I am relatively young and new to the technology blogging scene I can definitely see the comparisons of now to the situation we were in during the dreaded late-90s. In fact, I even reposted an article supporting the subject some months back. Does this really mean that these are signs of a repeat though? A lot of it could just be how the business works rather than the indications of the big picture. What does everyone else think, just a bunch of easy smoke everyone is grabbing or a real problem growing more prevalent across the entire technology field?
