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.

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.
