On this day six years ago the technology heavy NASDAQ Composite index peaked at 5048.62 (intra-day peak 5132.52), more than double its value just a year before. I had just started at my new dotcom job. 10 months later I decided never to leave journalism again. And now it’s time for Web 2.0 – or is it dotcom 2.0? I do get confused some times… Maybe is it time to pick up on the 80’s and my failed career as a punk musician? I still have my guitar, any one out there who wants to be in a band and change their life?
If you want to go down memory lane: Wikipedia on dotcom or Investopedia, the biggest market crashes in history. And something about the band (in Danish) Boghandle. Argh, this website does contain some disinformation. The band was formed in 1985 - not at the end of the 80’s. And the first album did not lead to a support gig for the Pixies. We played with the Pixies in Copenhagen a year before the debut on vinyl. June 1989. In fact my last concert with the band. But the fuzz pedal on the cover of the second album (produced by Jack Endino) was mine. And I still have it!
