Marc Andreessen brought us Netscape and wysiwyg browsing and now he’s bringing it via a new blog. Check it out. Today’s insightful post suggests that the gloomy predictions of a bubble 2.0 are overblown, and perhaps are simply a function of the human tendency to exaggerate gloom as an evolutionary protective measure.
As a proud primate I’d agree that evolution favors a cautious approach, and in fact probably innovators (like Marc) are actually few and far between partly for the reason that a world full of innovators is not as stable as a world full of … well … the folks the world is full of. Stability is an evolutionary requirement, so it’s all good.
So, is there a bubble? I’ll vote … no.
