The Dot Com Bubble was a bubble fueled by money pouring into Internet startups that turned out to be unable to make a profit. Investors looked to the future of the world and saw tech companies showering them in money, they saw that the Internet was the way of the future.

The bubble burst, leaving the Internet in tatters, but not dead.
