The Big Short

What does this film about betting against the banks during the middle of a fake real-estate boom have to do with tech?

Everything.

A similar “impossible” bubble almost destroyed the tech industry in 2001 when the dot-com bubble burst. Some say we are headed for another one.

But the main lesson from this film and historical catastrophe is look and then look again. Don’t just assume stuff works. Look at it. Even if the whole world tells you that you are crazy if the facts tell the truth — believe it.
