New York’s second tech boom


More navel-gazing tech ninnery, this time from New York magazine. It’s an interesting article, in that it at least reflects back on the first Internet bubble, which whipped through Manhattan like a bat on crack in the late ’90’s. Seems the jerk factor isn’t quite as high this time around.

And as a counterpoint, read this article about Daily Candy (again in New York magazine), an email newsletter that gives fashion and lifestyle tips. Selling price…$100 million. Uh….zuh?
