dot-com bubbleThe late 1990s during which countless Internet companies were riding an enormous wave of enthusiasm that pushed their stock valuations into the stratosphere even though they never made a penny. Billions in venture capital were given to entrepreneurs with little or no experience to fund ideas that were ludicrous. It was a crazy time, and people were very excited.

Compared to other industries, one must keep in mind that the Internet is still in its infancy! See dot-com and New Economy.
