Jeff Bezos on the next web innovation

The dot-com boom-and-bust is often compared to the 1849 Gold Rush, and founder Jeff Bezos offers historical evidence showing how similar they were: from the riches made by pioneers to the media hype that attracted luckless speculators.
But a better analogy can be found in the early days of the electric industry, he says. In the late 1800s, the U.S. was first wired to support lightbulbs; the following century saw a long procession of new appliances, life-changing advances, and of course some amusing failures.
His conclusion in 2003: "I believe there’s more innovation ahead of us than behind us."
