The Bubble is Back!

(EDIT 2007-12-18: Replaced old video with version 1.1)

The Richter Scales, always with our finger on the pulse of Silicon Valley, have released "Here Comes Another Bubble," a new YouTube music video about the Web 2.0 "bubble."

A little background: I've been working on the lyrics, arrangement and video for a couple months now, with lots of help from the group. Special thanks also to Bill Hare and Charlie Forkish for a stellar mix. Bill is a world-class sound engineer I've worked with in the past.

So far we've been linked to by Tech Crunch, Fake Steve Jobs, John Battelle, Kara Swisher of the Wall Street Journal, and Robert Scoble.

Big day for the Scales!

Very nice Video, however it seems to have been removed.

Apparently some of the big web2.0 guys did not like it ;)

Why has it been removed at a few web 2.0 sites ?

Cool video !!
At least got it downloaded with realplayer before it was removed.
