David Kirkpatrick of Fortune has good news for everyone working in this industry: The new Net boom is happening.

It may look like 1999, but this time it’s for real, and users, rather than investment bankers, stand to benefit. […] This is a real industry boom, not a Wall Street-hyped investment bubble.

Companies actually find ways of delivering added value for users before they sell their business model. And the entrepreneurs don’t aim for an IPO („instant porsche owner“), they mostly sell to bigger companies.

An encouraging trend, hope Mr. Kirkpatrick is right!
