Mark Cuban: the “tech bubble” is really a Ponzi scheme

Is there a bubble in tech?

It may not resemble the first .com bubble, but the valuations being
given to some of the hottest internet startups, from ‘mature‘ companies
including Facebook and Twitter all the way down to upstarts like Quora, is producing
plenty of skepticism.

Starting out with Quora: my first impressions

If enough people mention something on Twitter then I’m ultimately going to check it out. It happens with news stories and viral videos, and it happened a couple of days ago with Quora.

Quora is a new(ish) site that revolves around questions and answers. People ask questions, other people answer them. A fairly simple proposition.

Of course we’ve seen this kind of thing before with sites like Yahoo Answers, but Yahoo fundamentally failed to help people connect, whereas Quora has inbuilt networking by default (sign in via Twitter or Facebook to see what I mean). After all, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.
