The Web 2.0 bubble starts to burst

Well, it had to happen eventually. When you have hundreds of little differentiated, buzzword heavy “web 2.0” sites with hardly a business model between them, it’s no surprise that some of them simply aren’t going to make it. My prediction is that this is the start of a trend, and we’re going to see some higher profile crashes in the coming months (I still think thats that YouTube is still the likeliest candidate).

On the bright side, at least these little sites don’t represent hundreds of millions of dollars of investment capital like they did in the late 90’s.
