Quote of the Day

Nothing against new ideas. Some of them might even be good ones! But just because a company is based in the Bay Area and does something on your smartphone doesn't really make it "tech" at this point any more than something which uses that new-fangled electricity is tech.
Duncan "Atrios" Black
He's right.  Uber is basically a taxi service.  Grubhub is food delivery.  Air B&B is a B&B.  Stubhub is a scalper.

But all these guys think that they are geniuses of the first order, because ……… Internet. (or because ………Smart Phone)

This is why we find Silicon Valley to be a lot like Lord of the Flies

It's the only way to keep the all balls into the air is to never stop.
