Here comes Another Bubble:

Ok, vielleicht nicht ganz „live“, dafür passt es sehr gut zur aktuellen Finanzkrise und zur Diskussion, ob die Web2.0 Bubble (wenn es sie denn gibt) bald platzt.

Den Songtext zum Musikvideo „Here comes Another Bubble“ von The Richter Scales gibt es hier:

Got me a CS degree, honor roll, MIT
Moved to Palo Alto, opportunity knocked
Thought I had the perfect plan, took a job at Webvan
Traded in my twenties for a worthless pile of tech stock.

Suffered through the market crash, lost a giant wad of cash
Pink slips, burger flips, would you like some fries?
Happy days are here again, Larry Page, Sergey Brin
Time to write a business plan, So I can be like those guys!

Here comes another bubble, it’s a monster rally all around the valley.

First you need a buzzword, then a second and a third
Pick at least two industries, you’ll revolutionize.
Find yourself an engineer, feed him pizza, buy him beer
Give him just a fraction of a fraction of the pie.

Need a good domain name, must be cheap, can’t be lame
Something cool like flickr, meebo, wikiyou, mahalo, bebo
„Telephone“ without the „t“, „Digg“ but with a triple „g“
Make your elevator pitch, code it up and flip the switch!

Here comes another bubble, the VCs are backing, baby let’s get cracking.

Blog blog blog it all, blog it if it’s big or small.
Blog at the cineplex, blog while you’re having sex.
Blog in the locker room, babies blogging in the womb.
Blog even if you’re wrong, won’t you blog about this song?

Launch party, nicely dressed, what’s the point? Sausage fest
Blue shirts, khaki pants, looking like a line of ants.
Need to get a Facebook page, all these guys are half my age
Twenty nine, past my prime, I feel so behind the times.

Here comes another bubble, in a year we swear, we’ll all be billionaires!

Make yourself a million bucks, partly skill, mostly luck
Now you can afford a down payment on a small house
If you want a bigger one, Hillsborough, Atherton
Better hope the same thing happened to your spouse.

IPO….Lucky you, have your cake and eat it too
Private yacht, party jet, why not buy a matching set?
Build yourself a rocket ship, blast off on an ego trip
Can this really be the end? Back to work you go again.

Here comes another bubble, and when we are gone this will still go on and on and on and on and on and on….
