Browsing Wired's old issues online, I see a number of other hyped stories. No name VCs making "power plays", sexy new markets that don't quite pan out, more no name VCs extolling the virtues of "dumbass" investors. There's the worry about what to do if things get too good in the decade that just passed.
The market will fluctuate daily, but by 2010, the Dow will soar past the 50,000 mark.
There's a lot more pie-in-the-sky predictions which fortunately have been thwarted by circumstance and incompetence.
One sees much the same in the other direction, it's not until more than a year after March, 2000 that one sees a title story that has the dotcom decline as a key part of the story (Andy Grove, then Chairman of the Board for Intel, the story discusses Intel's problems coming from the market and demand declines). There's still plenty of "power plays" and other VC games hyped throughout the issues.
