Back when bootstrapping wasn't

Here's a little blast from the past - a story on entrepeneurship during the bubble from '99. Of course from bubble phenomenon thestreet.com.
The spin on that story is the difficulty in hanging on to your garage spirit when you've got lots of money - at least that is a problem many companies don't have today..
There's evan a genuine bubble quote in there from Katie Peterson, founder of WebOrder (which seems defunct?)

But if you're starting a company now, she says, the best bet is to "raise $50 million or forget it

Found it looking through google images for a photo of Joe Kraus, who now thinks a little bit differently about the money you need.
