Am not sure if the bad review is good publicity . Am not sure how much they have raised or how they go through blood, sweat and tears to get something up and running. I do hear that if you are not embarrassed on your first version then you launched too late, can that be applied here? Or is that those guys disturbed you so much that you decided to write but provide reviews that could destroy their reputation or is it editorial freedom? Cut those guys some slack and give them a breathing space to grow and get better. If their site doesn't work well they themselves know and their users know, don't you think they are either constrained or have a plan to make it better? Having the power certainly should be exercised with caution because you can destroy something you never really intended to do.

Sadly the world stops only in America. Other companies who are solving this problem for non Americans will not get coverage.

How wonderful that you looked at B2B e-commerce, I hardly see B2B startups covered on tech blogs. @eringriffith In the meantime you might need to see if this fits your normal picture which I doubt but since you decided to write about B2B let me share www.ziliot.com .

Trevor,

 

Your point number 1 is the most accurate point ever I believe all tech journalist and bloggers including you all of Pandodaily should take not of that first point. You missed the part that would have re-informed about what those you don't know of can build in comparison to investing 43million or above in a product that didn't go anywhere, I mean color. Infact there is whole lot that can be learnt from the story of Pinternest including the comparison with Google+ or should I say your point number 2 and 3. Above all things I wish you tech bloggers should understand how much your jobs helps startups get traction or even investors otherwise keep waiting for the Pinterest to become hot cakes before you write about them. Say hi to the writers at Venturebeat for me, they are the best in this regards

The tone of the article actually suggests that you are expressing your editorial freedom and not actually"I write in defense of real technologists and entrepreneurs everywhere." but  "This post was primarily in reference to the TV show and what I expect to be it's poor portrayal of Silicon Valley." , Did you get my point? "This post was primarily in reference to the TV show and what I expect to be it's poor portrayal of Silicon Valley." is why you wrote the post, accept that.

Michael this sounded like real journalism. I felt I was reading a magazine, I enjoyed the article but you skipped how many months he lasted with 130 USD. Great writting
