Wobble 2.0?

Posted on 28 Feb 2007 by Zopa

A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to be invited to pontificate in front of a crowd of techie types on the subject of whether or not we’re in another dot com bubble.

The event was the inaugural Chinwag Live and was held in the basement of the Slug and Lettuce in deepest Soho.

Rather alarmingly, the event was recorded, and you can download the podcasts that resulted from iTunes, or directly from Chinwag themselves.

You can get the whole kit ‘n’ caboodle here (80 minutes), listen just to me ramble on here (12 minutes), or just the Q&A session here (33 minutes). The Q&A was the bit where we had to think on our feet a little - that of course is my excuse for any stupid things I may have said :)

There was quite a lot of coverage on the (in the?) blogosphere, you can read a few pieces here, here, here and there, and the consensus seemed to be that there wasn’t in fact another bubble - and that we’re all being much more sensible this time around.

We’ll see.

In the meantime, here’s a picture of yours truly holding forth…

Dave in full flow - eek.

…and you can see the whole set here.
