To understand tech-company life cycles, you can skip the Harvard Business Review. Instead, study "Citizen Kane." And "Death of a Salesman." And "The Anatomy of Melancholy." And the Old Testament.
And while you're at it -- if, on the eve of Facebook's $100 billion IPO, you really want to grasp tech investing -- "120 Days of Sodom."
I think there is a strong wind a brewin'... and it may be a blowin' down a mast or two, mateys...
Of course... WTF do I really know about anything?
Well, I know enough not to have purchased "GroupOn" stock... heh.
