I like Loren says in his video below, believe in the markets. I also believe that opinions are like assholes….
There are 70 million blogs so imagine the stench. The loudest and stinkiest stench in my reading circle comes continuously from the mouth of Jason Calacanis. I don’t read his blog, but see his name in the Tech blogs. He is a self appointed A-Lister (?). He has been sent to exile at AOL, but someone left his microphone on and he just keeps talking.
It is an interesting strategy and it works to some extent. Like Cramer these days, if you talk all day, some stuff seems spot on. The A Listers have been attacking PayPerPost . Jason the loudest. He has no idea what he is talking about. IF HE DID, HE WOULD BE WORKING FOR GOOGLE and not just a paycheck. AOL is to the internet what the horse and buggy was to transportation. It will get you there, but you will have aged, you occasionally have to deal with assholes and it just stinks.
Loren just takes apart Calacanis in this video from his kitchen. If Loren was running Netscape, they may not have the same fake traffic as they do now, but at least the content would be interesting – and funny.
