Survey Finds Optimism Among Tech Execs

A recent survey of tech executives shows that, while most have been hurt by the recent economic downturn, two-thirds believe that the present troubles will impact them less than the bubble burst of 2000. Enthusiasm is tempered by the reality of the present credit crisis — and while more than 50 percent of those polled believe a turn-around will start in the latter half of 2009, a majority also believe that the IPO market will languish at least until 2010.
