  1. Here's a blast from the past...(or at least bits and pieces of one).

  2. looks like the investors of the world dodged another bullet thanks to Mr. Pearse's family values.
  3. i mean think about it...this guy was looking at becoming a dotcombillionaire...and he opted to 'do the right thing.'

    I was not looking for this theme when I posted this but as I reread it it jumped out at me.

    I dunno...maybe they couldn't get the deal done...
  4. Were any deals being done in late 2000? If not, then maybe his motives weren't so high. It'd be nice to be able to take someone at his word for a change.
  5. Chas - You know what people say about people that talk to themselves don't you?
  6. well, you know what they say about what 'they' say.... fade it.

    Some dispute about the amounts, but looks like everyone's a little richer anyway...
  8. I was a consultant for VC firms before I began my current career, and all I can tell you is that VC guys are one notch above TV evangelist (and that's a very small notch).

    I want them all to fail. They've ruined San Francisco, they've ruined trust in the market place, and they've ruined the lives of many many of my friends (at least for the time being).

    They didn't mind taking everyone's money, but now when the economy needs a boost, and their pockets are fat, you don't see them contributing a damn thing.

    Some lawyer is going to drag these guys down. I'm not sure how and I'm not sure when, but their definitely doing something illegal.
