Insight Partners was kind enough to ask me to speak to some of their investors this afternoon.The topic: Whether or not there’s a new tech bubble.

(As an Internet stock analyst from 1996-2001, I had a good view of the last one.)

No, there’s no new tech bubble. At least not yet.

A few hot companies have high multiples, and there’s some silly stuff happening in the angel and secondary markets. But this is just a cyclical tech boom, not a bubble.

That said…

There are plenty of other things to worry about these days. Things that are scarier than a tech bubble…
