I'm pretty sure the chart for the 1990's showed a big peak during the
dot-com, with a drop of more than 5000 jobs during the period from
2000-2003, but the chart seems to have disappeared off the internet now. On
a local basis, anyone who was attending the Silicon Valley STC meetings
before, during and after the dot-com can tell you about meetings that filled
hotel conference facilities at the peak and gatherings of two dozen people
in 2003.
