The long queue of nearly a thousand prospective buyers for Parc City's 521 units reminds me of's initial public offering in early 2000, when people lined up for hours to bid for the company's shares, which was followed very shortly by the inevitable burst of the Internet bubble in March 2000.

It really is astonishing how history repeats. Humans just go on making the same mistakes.
