Pre-millennial tension

If you're of a particular age -- say, old enough to have been an adult around the turn of the millenium but young enough to have not been afraid of these new-fangled "computers" everyone was using to get on the "web" back then -- you probably have at least moderately fond memories of the dot-com boom. And if you partied like it was 1999 in the tech industry in 1999, you may well have had a pretty weird job title that reflected the new -- and uncertain -- job terrain on which you found yourself. Maybe you had a business card that called you a "guru of fun!"
