Partying takes work

A few months ago, I pontificated on how things in Web 2.0-land were starting to feel a little, well, frothy. A different take on this came today in this Techcrunch post ; while not necessarily vindicating the degree of frothiness that I'd feared, it does vindicate my marathon-esque search for the "right" startup:

It’s so cheap to create Web startups these days that we are going to be seeing a whole lot more of them. Many will be inane, redundant, or half-baked. But a few will rise up from the froth and create something lasting. Bubble or not, it’s worth keeping an eye out for those game-changers. We just might have to wade through a lot of junk to find them.

Of course, that concept of "weeding through a lot of junk to find the right one" sort of plays into my other theory....
