Speaker:The Dot Com Bubble http://cmucc.org/talks/
In the late 1990s, the Internet appeared to be a never-ending sea of free money. Tech stocks were all the rage, and anything with ".com" in the name was a guaranteed moneymaker. But it was not to last. Many entrepeneurs lost their fortunes overnight, and ".com" went from being a buzzword to a swear word. In this talk we'll discuss the Internet bubble, and how you can avoid making some of the same mistakes — Have you ever wondered how fast inverse square root works, wanted to learn a bit of computing history, or craved the thrill of learning a new language again, but didn't know where to start looking? Look no further! Whether you're a hacking veteran or a newfound computer lover, there's something for you in Computer Club's Spring 2016 weekly talk series, so swing on by! The talksl take place every Wednesday starting at 8:00 PM in Wean 5421 throughout the semester. Sponsored by Green Hills Software.
