I think that VCs spent FAR more than $35M in 2000. I've worked for more than one startup company where just our one company got more than $35M of VC money in one year.

I think it should be $35 *billion*. See page 64 of the report: Web Link

Also the worst year to spin-off a high tech company, e.g. Agilent Technlogies.
