A co-worker started up a travel web site a few years back. It is now finally making money. I have been watching this site since inception and it has been fun seeing the growth. The site looks very professional and does appear to have some good travel bargains. All this while staying employed at his current full-time job and raising a family. Very impressive.
I am beginning to think we are going to see another tech bubble. This one will be a little better thought out than the previous and have a better foundation. The venture capitalist will be considerably more careful in what they throw their money at.
