We are hearing comments about the pricing of  tech developers being at a level that means they are overpriced and hyped up http://bit.ly/JsYvRH. Yes they are. But it is easy to mistake the part that is bubble and the part that is the internet bushing on. In 1999 money deserted the web. A lot of people told us it has had its day.

There will be a correction and it will burn a few but by no means all and the people in for a long haul will again be big winners.
