My thoughts on @bfeld's"99 Investor Problem" the JOBS Act and Angellist:

My personal view is that we do this one step at a time and prove we are responsible actors on a functional platform. The 99 investor problem could also refer to 1999 when retail investors were left holding cats in bags prepared for them by professional investors. Let's build a strong platform with good diligence tools, social signals, evidence of track record and then go back and propose the next regulatory evolution. I am convinced there is a day where crowdfunding will apply to startups as it applies to products on Kickstarter, but we need to make sure it's done well. Let's celebrate the deregulation, demonstrate our platform works, and then fight for the next step
