The Buzz is Back

March 10th, 2003 | Posted by paul in Uncategorized

Joi Ito and Kim Polese sat down for lunch yesterday and agreed that the buzz is back in the Valley, although it probably never left. Several responses were quite cynical knowing the Valley’s crash.

I agree with Kim and Joi, the buzz is back if it ever really left at all. Moore’s and Gilder’s Laws continue apace. Despite the fizzle of hype and greed, the empty promises and the insanely stupid business ideas that inflated the valley, the true fundamentals of accelerating change are moving forward. Despite any amount of greed or lack of capitalization, or political instability, this trend will continue, and the applications running on and thru it will only get more powerful, more connected, more networked and more cohesive. You can remain cynical about the power of blogging, but we ain’t seen nothing yet. The network economy will (eventually) change everything, its just going to take longer that we originally thought. And yes, I think we are seeing the beginning of the end for Nation States.
