Dylan Tweney thinks the dot-bomb should be called the telebomb:
When I asked executive outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas about this earlier this year, they told me that ten times as many people lost jobs in the telecom sector as had been laid off in the Internet/dot com sector. In other words, the years 2001-2002 were the telebomb, not dot-bomb.
Yup. They blew a ton of cash during the boom.
