I don't know if she is or isn't a natural, but she's young. She doesn't know that investors snicker when an entrepreneur says, "And those numbers are conservative."
About 90 percent of first-time entrepreneurs use that line when estimating their market size, and that number is very conservative. ;-)

Government data is owned by the people of the country. Corporate data is owned by the corporation.
Seems like a relatively easy distinction.

What a load of crap. Only in the bizarre-o world of the Silicon Valley is this "disappointing." This is a great day for all involved, nothing remotely disappointing about it.
The only thing disappointing is watching a reporter spout the views of some unnamed, unseen investor -- probably without even talking to one -- as a way of pre-emptively sucking up.

We face the same thing at BlogMutt. We are writing the blog posts for a LOT of startups that you've heard of, and they aren't talking. Neither are we. We are also writing a lot of the blog posts for agencies, but those agencies don't tell their clients they are getting the posts from us. We keep that secret, too.
The one big difference: All of our writers are based here in the US. (We check.)
And our writers love writing for BlogMutt. We posted a story today from one writer about how much BlogMutt has meant to her: http://blog.blogmutt.com/2013/07/why-getting-a-level-6-writing-badge-was-the-second-best-thing-to-happen-to-me-one-day/
She's one of more than 1,000 writers we have now. Each has a different story, but they have in common the fact that they all write great posts for BlogMutt clients, and keep their work a secret.
One other difference: Pando, TechCrunch, and the others won't cover us because they think we're somehow making the world worse for writers. That's not true, but I've seen it over and over. It's OK. Businesses still find out about us, mostly in whispered conversations where friends tell friends how it is they are able to keep their business blog so current.

I'm a founder of BlogMutt, and we do offer health care for employees. The cost sucks, but it's the hassles of the paperwork that suck even worse.

Nice radical honesty of showing how completely you stuck your foot in your mouth while talking to Adriana. I hope your shoe was all organic!
