New Tech Bust Coming, Says InfoWorld
 
Facebook's deal to buy Instagram — "a startup with 13 employees" — for $1 billion is a sign that a new tech bubble is fixin' to burst, advises Bill Snyder on an InfoWorld blog. That's a truly frightening prediction, considering the harm the tech bubble of the '90s did when it popped. "...the last time we saw this pattern, the entire tech economy blew up along with the dot-coms, and thousands of people in IT (and elsewhere) lost their jobs. It's going to happen again," Snyder warns. 

"(and elsewhere)" can well include PR firms. So batten down the hatches for a new tech strom that increasing numbers of commentators feel is coming. Sorry to spoil your weekends.
