Manager claims managing people is just like programming. Uses screenshot of HTML with tables used for layout http://t.co/TJIk1CxVR3 #hmmmm@sriramk what is the intrinsic value of WhatsApp? According to FB filing $18 billion of it acquisition price was goodwill. So you tell me 😊A bubble is when stock price is ridiculously higher than the business value. VC is about investing when this is the case. Hence perma-bubble@sriramk a bubble is when prices significantly outweigh the intrinsic value of the biz. Typical tech VC investing is bubble-like for sure@sriramk whether a business is overvalued is a different discussion on whether the original investors made money. Completely different@sriramk when people talk about bubbles they are complaining companies overvalued. In competitive markets, that is true if you aren't leaderReality is the bubble never left. For every Instagram or Facebook there are a dozen MySpaces, Bebos & PicPlz whose investors/buyers lost bigLove these predictions.

I like the definition that a startup is company designed for rapid growth. So once order of magnitude growth over, it's no longer a startup@maryjofoley I think you meant revenue-per-search not revenue-per-share?@yesthatkarim it's race baiting and class war crap. Bad PM work turns into "only young, mostly white, mostly upper middle class people" rantFavorite overreaction to a badly designed Facebook feature? This one which turns it into race/class war fodder. http://t.co/4hBvYbSyu0Any feature where you show people their most popular photos/tweets/posts shouldn't assume they are positive.
