Web 2.0

Guy Kawasaki has a great article on his blog today called The Art of the Layoff. There is no doubt that we are in a new dotcom era which is hopefully seasoned with more wisdom and business leadership understanding. Guy is the first I have heard so far use the term “bubble” again. I suppose that it is inevitable that we have over-inflated values on companies and ideas with a frenzy to hire the best and aquire warehouses to host the masses.

Having an influx of start-up capital coming back into the web is good for all of us in this space. It gives room for ideas to emerge and opportunities to upset the status quo. I am also thankful for people like Guy who will remind us that this is a season, a moment for us to take a chance again. I am left reminded that in the midst of our excitements we need to spell out the risk to those coming on board. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t
