The DotComBubble was a period? during which the Internet (which, prior to that period, had been -- pretty much -- the province of computer nerds and academics), and the World Wide Web, in particular, was accredited (falsely, some say) with such immense commercial potential that nearly any half-sane business proposal involving the Internet would be funded by venture capital. When the promised land did not materialize at the promised rate, funding dried up, the bubble burst, and only the strongest survived. See DotCom.
