"The TechCrunch Bubble Index: Parsing Headlines to Quantify Startup Hype"

Here is an excellent quantitative look at the startup bubble, by Todd W. Schneider

A correspondent writes,

The "total amount raised by startups" chart is a classic completed 5 wave impulse up structure with wave 3 up being the biggest by far and itself having a completed 5 wave impulse structure beginning Aug 09 and ending Sept. Oct. 2012.
Remember that in September, Bill Gurley "sounded the alarm" on the startup bubble - except that he essentially said that even he is unable to stop investing and his portfolio companies are unable to spend more conservatively.

It is common knowledge that real net worth can only go up from here.

See? Nothing to worry about. If there was euphoria then we'd see it in the chart. ;)
