Deadpool

Looks like 2007 may turn out to be a little bumpy for one web 2.0 startup or the other:

Mike Arrington takes a minute to examine whether or not we’re in a new Bubble, Bubble, Bubble:

In Web 1.0 companies didn’t fail (until the crash). They just raised more money, at a higher valuation, and gave it another shot. That isn’t happening today. VCs are letting their startups die, as they should. Things aren’t as exciting as they were in 1999, but it’s a whole lot saner.

So every time a startup dies, I don’t think it’s evidence of a bubble about to burst. I think it’s evidence of a market that is working exactly as it should. Most companies fail, but enough win to keep the whole ecosystem healthy.

There you have it.
