Burnout and Bubbles

Financial blogger Elizabeth Spiers speculates about the end of the "blog bubble." This is, I think, a classic case of fighting the last war; these days, it seems Wall Street sees tulips and bubbles everywhere.

If we know anything about the Internet, we know that people want to write. Sometimes they get tired of writing (and what's really bothering Spiers is just writer's block), and sometimes they can't write, but people will continue to write about matters that matter to them, and they'll continue to do it on the Net.
