Kelly McNeill writes: "The real story of the dot-com boom, of course, resides in the personal tales that so many people have. Advance warning to grandchildren born anytime after 2030: You are going to hear more stories about Internet startups than you can bear. And in those stories, startups will be faster, richer and even more free-spending than in real life, which is saying something if you think about how much was spent so quickly. And the shakeout. Well, that will be even more dramatic, more abrupt, more outrageous than can be now imagined."
