San Francisco hopes tech


success is not Bubble 2.0
By Marcus Wohlsen
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO — A certain feeling is back in San


Francisco. Murmurings of stock market riches. Twenty-some-
thing entrepreneurs as celebrities. Lamborghinis parked next to
taco trucks.
Driven by social media and mobile startups, the money is
flowing in the city’s tech industry again, a decade after the dot-
com boom minted overnight millionaires and its crash fueled a
local recession worse than anything San Francisco has seen in
the latest downturn.
A recent tax break for Twitter and other proposals show city
officials are hopeful that this latest tech industry prosperity does
not portend another bubble and another bust.
“It seems to be the industry that’s leading us out of the reces-
sion at the moment,” said Ted Egan, the city’s chief economist.
Even so, he said, “it’s certainly not yet another dot-com boom.”
At present, the signs do not point clearly to the same excess of
optimism that led to the high perch from which the city had so
far to fall. But some of the numbers swirling around the tech
startup scene could stir a sense of deja vu.
Along with Twitter, the San Francisco startup causing the most
excitement is Zynga, maker of popular Facebook games like
“FarmVille” and “CityVille.” Estimates based on recent invest-
ments put the valuations of both companies at $7 billion or more.
Yet unlike the first dot-com era, when companies with neither
customers nor a clear way to make money raised millions in pub-
lic stock offerings, both Twitter and Zynga have become major
participants in the online economy.
While Twitter is still tweaking its business model and keeps its
revenue figures closely held, the company happily claims 175
million users on its way to becoming a global phenomenon.
Zynga’s popularity and approach to money-making are even
clearer: It sells virtual goods that players use in the company’s
online games. Last year, the company made about $400 million
doing just that, according to published reports.
