Dot Com Burst

Though it is 5 years old, the spectacular failure of hundreds of dot coms in 2000 is history worth remembering. It showed how Market, Media, Investors, Promoters and Public can all go wrong at the same time. It once again proved that there is no shortcut to success and that Money never comes Quick, never comes Easy. It showed to Businesses that there is no substitute to a solid revenue roadmap.

In this connection today I read an interesting Chronology of the Top 10 Internet Dot Com Burst. Check it out here.
