Most worthless sentence of the week

I cannot speak for the report's author, Nick Schulz at TCSDaily, but I was alive in 2000 and recall it being the very peak of the tech bubble when the best way to get rich was to start an Internet company. This makes 2000 a useless year for comparisons. Today we can read such a thing and laugh, but in 60 years will anyone automatically know that 2000 was the technology bubble year?
