A five-year hangover
I didn't actually realize how apropos this post was, but according to Slashdot, today (at 1pm) marks the five year anniversary of the NASDAQ's peak (at 5048.62). I'll have to remember to pause for a moment of silence.
The funny thing about it was, my company was out trying to raise money at exactly this time. And we had no idea it was the beginning of the end. Honestly, none of us even started to worry until weeks later.
