yeah - your hearing this story over and over. And I don't know where
the Times is getting their data. Obviously, those of us who went
through the previous dot.com boom KNOW that it is wrong on two fronts...
A) the dot come boom was independent of Wall Street Jobs and in fact
those jobs piled on after the Boom and Soho start up dragged the banks

more profound and deep that the current movement. But most importantly
we also KNOW that this will crash hard and those without better coding
skills than make "Flappy Bird Flap", is going to find themselves lost
without hard core skill sets.
