I guess that it’s called experience when you’ve seen this one before. As the stock market is falling, venture capital is freezing up and we’re looking for a new president – it’s obviously reminiscent of 2008. It seems sort of obvious that oil will be expensive in the future, unemployment will rise and new great startups will form. Nothing’s ever for sure, but cycles do seem to repeat, at least the broad strokes.
There are always new factors. This time around there is much more at stake for me personally. Things seem more normal, rather than the Black Swan of 2008 and the media seems to be much more alarmist, than genuinely concerned.
I wonder what will seem like the obvious best move in 2-3 years.
