But it hasn’t exactly rebounded either.

Tech layoffs continue to pile up, even as the rest of the labor market remains hot. The IPO pipeline remains frozen solid despite a long list of well-funded startups that would dearly like to graduate to the public markets. Venture funding is scarce.

There have been some big, unexpected twists and turns. Silicon Valley Bank collapsed in spectacular fashion in the span of a few days, marking the second-largest bank failure in U.S. history and the first since the financial crisis.

And artificial intelligence has moved forward in incredible leaps and bounds. Of the 20 largest venture funding rounds to U.S. startups so far this year, six have gone to companies in the AI space, including the biggest of them all: Microsoft-backed OpenAI. This week, the AI boom minted Nvidia as the world’s first trillion-dollar chipmaker.

With all that in mind, we want to hear from you, our readers, about what you expect from the rest of a year that has thus far defied expectations. Let us know in the quick survey below. Survey results will be published in a few weeks.
