Well, it really looks like a second dot com boom, only that this time the technology is really cool.

Exactly my sentiments. Wondering if it will turn out to be a bubble or not.
Now it's just waiting for yahoo or MS to buy Finetune.

The low cost of hardware and software has really facilitated a lot of the new dot com boom. Before you needed to buy Sun servers with Solaris and other hefty priced gadgetry.

Now you can get a reliable Windows box for $400 a month or a massive Linux storage box for the same.

There are much easier to use free database servers now as well so you're not forking out $40,000 to store data.

It's a vastly different world now than it was between 1997 and 2000.

Hmmm... Now what am I going to do to hop on the band wagon? :D
