With all the talk of massive amounts of cash sloshing around the web/mobile startup ecosystem (including things I've said recently), you would think that nobody bootstraps anymore.

New Programming Jargon

www.codinghorror.com
Stack Overflow - like most online communities I've studied - naturally trends toward increased strictness over time.
