Caffeinated Coder A Grande, Triple Shot, Non-Fat Core Dump by Russell Ball
I started my developer career on the tail end of the last tech bubble, so I can't help getting all misty eyed thinking about the Tech Bubble Part Deux.

What better way to celebrate this historic event than to pay homage to some soon-to-be classic YouTube satire by the Richter Scales. It's set to the tune of of Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire". I especially like the minute by minute rags-to-riches twitter stream along with the "Just Go Blog About It" refrain at the end. The irony of using an 80's Billy Joel song to lambaste Web 2.0 is pure evil genius.

So now I finally understand what is driving the big IT salary increases in recent months that has been touted in this CIO magazine article.

Note to self
: Pack a few extra bucks under the mattress for when the bubble goes kerplewy again in a couple of years.

Thanks man! I've done some intense goofing off today and fell all recharged for another year of running, beer making, and blogging.
