boomtown.jpgThe Wall Street Journal’s Kara Swisher wrote the BoomTown column during the dot-com boom. It faded after the bubble burst. Now she’s back with a BoomTown blog. With the Dow breaking the 13,000 barrier at new highs, and the technology-strong Nasdaq creeping steadily upward since 2002, this may indeed be an appropriate name.

Her blog is part of the All Things Digital site, just launched with Walt Mossberg, the well known reviewer of personal technology.

Swisher is a talented writer, and this should be fun to watch. She starts with a piece about Yahoo’s Terry Semel.
