SF Gate, one of my favorite daily reads (must add them to my list) had a week long series of articles on the past year from a San Francisco business perspective, including layoffs, dot-com failures, real estate hitting the skids in San Francisco and so on. It’s an excellent review — read the first entry “Bay Area Layoffs”.
As bad as it seems at times, only about 10% of existing dot coms have failed. I read that statistic somewhere this week and now can’t find the reference.
