There is a mildly entertaining video out of venture guy John Doerr explaining the dimensions of the Web 2.0
bubble boom to ZDNet Editor Dan Farber. Doerr is a very smart and savvy guy, someone who could buy me one hundred times over and have enough money left to buy Eastern Europe and convert it into a bocce park, but his comments didn’t do much for me.
For example, while there is an element of vanity to the blogging boom, Doerr’s riff that there are more bloggers than blog readers — so it’s all about vanity — was tired and easy. I would have expected Doerr to skip the easy putdown and dig deeper.
