[I think both Tom's and Sally's points are salient. Cambridge Tech is
sleeping in the mess it made. The giant sucking sound you hear is talent
and capital being pulled from established fields into Net startups.
Examples: Stanford business school students dropping out, Harvard grads

Joe Galli spurning Pepsi's Frito-Lay for, and Microsoft's
brain drain. The rush to the Net is classic example of economist Joseph
Schumpeter's "gales of creative destruction." The last person to leave
corporate America for the Net, please turn out the lights ...
