How to manage a startup in a downturn…

How to manage a startup in a downturn… How about stop going to so many fucking conferences and stop putting on parties. How about investing in actually starting up a company rather than seeing the same people in different locations every two weeks talking about the same things. Just saying.

    I think the funniest part of this post is the categorization. Classic. ;-)

    D’oh. Time to scrap that planned “Startup Company-wide Pheasant Hunt”.

    I’m with you 100% Ethan.

    It seems like the last year has really been devoid of any meaningful startups. But there’s been a ton that show up at meetups and conventions to present their press release products and party.

    I call them press release products because they seem to only have been created to allow the owners to hire a publicity firm to run a press release that might trick a sucker into investing… and also get them invited to parties.
