The correct answer is nail some verticals first then if you got the juice and substance go horizontal fast before Google. Cisco, Intel, GE and perhaps a few other get there ;-)

Good points from Gün Sirer on Summly which I agree with.
Narrative Science, News360 and Futureful are good offerings but when you just say semantic analysis this is too vague
The best apps ( none listed in your article ) will do semantic analysis with extraction of pattern-identified information including attributes associated with terms and concept extraction with contextual relationships that includes sentiment analysis.
Yes there's more but enough for now ;)

I got it first time around but it this still was lots of fun reading ;)
> But imagine a hundred kids came into play a game that was designed for about 10. That is effectively what is different this time around. The number of chairs (the Series A round) hasn’t changed. But since so many more kids are trying to play the game and don’t get one, it has a more dramatic ripple effect.
Perhaps you should have used this brilliant school kid analogy is your initial post http://pandodaily.com/2012/11/28/the-series-a-crunch-is-hitting-now-have-we-even-noticed/ to hammer the message home

@Pv @sardire OK good and exactly my point in my comment above ;)
3 months, 1 week ago on Three reasons not to build a Minimum Viable Product
Most of your argument is centered around 1. You are building a sustaining innovation or disruptive product which is your best point and would have more merit if more startups clearly understood the difference ( i.e. way too many think they're disruptive which is much harder to achieve ) and for the ones that get this right then 3. You achieve product-market fit really is a derivative of 1. You are building a sustaining innovation or disruptive product.
Finally regarding 2. You don’t care if you’re wasteful today translates into your will flame out faster and not get Series A funding unless you find some dumbass VC or angel investors ;)
