Bubble 2.0? Laugh until you cry.



"Need a good domain name, must be cheap, can't be lame
Something cool like Flickr, Meebo
Wikiyou, Mahalo, Bebo
Telephone without the T
Diggg but with a triple G
Make your elevator switch
Code it up and hit the switch."


Anyone who was part of the IT industry back in 1999 knows the word "bubble" can be quickly and easily translated into massive dismissal waves, lower salaries and dramatic changes of family budgets. Even though the 2000 dot com crisis had mainly positive impact on my life course I can still remember it very clearly as a no joke situation. Lets all hope web 2.0 is NOT bubble 2.0. Lets hope this hilariously funny takeoff on Billy Joel's We Didn't Start the Fire will remain just a great music video joke by Richter Scales that managed to take the lead on the Guardian Viral Video Chart earlier today.

Solo, video, arrangement and lyrics by Matt Hempey, Mixed by Bill Hare, Recorded by Jason Hunter & Charlie Forkish. As they say, Web 2.0 just had it coming. Laugh until you cry.
