OMG...ppl can write blog posts on their "streams"? Meaning, your post can be thousands or words long with an end in sight! Is this good or bad?

It seems like some people are using this as a replacement for Quora. Do we even need Quora then? Remember Google Answers? Is it time to bring that back from the dead? Hehe

Sunday Rant Part 1:+Taj Ahmad Quoting his FB status, "Just had a team meeting and thus continuing my rant -- based on my article below, I do agree with Duke's Vivek Wadhwa who states that some of these VCs are creating bubbling ponzi scenarios, making it Christmas everyday, especially with the secondary markets. The real trick is, and where I stand, is to help fund, advise and create start-ups who employ, create, grow and last beyond the exit."

So we're all talking about valuations and fast money nowadays. I know there are VC's out there that are either trying to get in on the ride until their tech companies goes IPO only to cash out!

News travels fast but not fast enough. And it depends who you are. So by the time the company goes IPO, mainstream America is just hearing about LinkedIn, Zynga etc; they end up cashing out and the regular consumer gets screwed! Sure you might make money from the pop, but no average consumer really does that anyways. That's bc we still have conservative fund managers that (until recently have started adding companies like Facebook, Groupons into their investment portfolio) tell their investors to buy and hold. While this bubble might be different than 1999 or 2005, we still have problems to worry about. It's just a different set of issues.

I don't know about you guys but from what I know about the web, is that you can be high and mighty like the once go-to site such as Myspace. Who is to say that there can't be a mass exodus for any web company. Internet users are fickle and technology is "clone-able." The only difference is in scalability. But that can be fixed from a bit of funding :). And when you do get that funding does it now mean you have a real business? Yep, this currently sums up web companies in 2011: Clone it. Get some buzz. Have some technology. Get a superstar Angel to back you up. Then pitch the IPO exit strategy.

Hehe... Yeah, I noticed people were asking questions...and then your post was fun so I thought I'd move it over here. Maybe someone can chime in. Other than that I knew what you were referring to. lol. My reference... Warren Buffet...he only invests in things that he understands. So any investor that wants to help build a company: A) should invest what he/she understands. B) Any common investor should also do the same thing. Invests in things that you understand. C) Like VC's...invest with "house" money if you can. But if you do use your own money, go back to Buffet's rules on investing. Hehe...

I'll check out the article...hehe

Introduction
I love tech. I love to build ideas. Currently, I'm working on Pageable, an social ecommerce startup :)

Our current platform helps small to medium sized business owners build deal pages.

Startupitis - A workshop, conference, and blog membership site for small to medium-sized businesses

BreakThrough SMB Conference - Coming Soon! A conference about the 4 stages of building a web business online for small to medium-sized businesses.

Business Expo Center of Anaheim is awesome! :)

I love food. I love my wife. I love the weekend trips with her.

Love my family. My parents are my inspiration and motivation and they're responsible for who I am today!

Surround yourself with great people. It really is true, " You are who you hang out with." Hehe. Get rid of the noise in your life: Drama, the unmotivated, cheaters, stealers, and liars. I'm sure there's more.

Get a mentor. I got one early on. I'm sure all the great minds of the world got themselves one too. So should you!

Love my nieces and nephew! - Try to make time for everyone one of them plus work. It's always hard sometimes you can't be in two places at once. Oh well. Keep trying right? LOL.

Umm...other random stuff I do? I love to help people build businesses. Not an angel by far but I can help get your ideas off the ground. Mostly on the accelerator side. Ping me for any proposals you have. I can either help or point you to the right people.
