What the Bubble Got Right

Paul Graham has written an article about what the Internet bubble got right. Interesting read, now that we have been so busy the past years focusing on what it got wrong. Among other things he notes that the Internet bubble was a California phenomenon: Graham, who now lives on the east coast, says: "What makes the Bay Area superior is the attitude of the people. I notice that when I come home to Boston. The first thing I see when I walk out of the airline terminal is the fat, grumpy guy in charge of the taxi line. I brace myself for rudeness: remember, you're back on the East Coast now." Hmm, close to how I feel when I go back to Denmark, I'm afraid.
