Bubble or No Bubble?

Rob Hof

My colleagues Justin Hibbard and Heather Green examine not only the overriding question in Silicon Valley--are we in a mini-bubble, at least in Web startups?--but how that's coloring the way people look at each new startup and each new buyout. I've been thinking about the bubble question for awhile, and at least one person thinks the Web 2.0 crash is nigh. Still not sure about that, but I think a lot of folks in all these me-too startups may be looking for work in the next couple of years after Google, Yahoo!, and Microsoft decide not to buy them.
