Over reading Tim O’Reilly’s blog on up and coming technology.

Lots of excitement going on these days in web technology, but also some healthy skepticism.

The bursting of the dot-com bubble in the fall of 2001 marked a turning point for the web. Many people concluded that the web was overhyped, when in fact bubbles and consequent shakeouts appear to be a common feature of all technological revolutions. Shakeouts typically mark the point at which an ascendant technology is ready to take its place at center stage. The pretenders are given the bum’s rush, the real success stories show their strength, and there begins to be an understanding of what separates one from the other.

Just got done reading an article over Paul Graham’s site. Everytime I leave there, I get a little pick me up on the work that I am trying to do. DONT WORK FOR THE MAN! Gotta stick to that….. Must stick to it…..
Must form start-up company…… Must be bought so I can make more start-up companies.

Anyways here is the link to the article. 🙂

Ideas for Startups

How do you get good ideas for startups? That’s probably the number one question people ask me.

I’d like to reply with another question: why do people think it’s hard to come up with ideas for startups?

That might seem a stupid thing to ask. Why do they think it’s hard? If people can’t do it, then it is hard, at least for them. Right?
