I too am bothered by the notion that any acquisition is a success but this article doesn't have any supporting data.  How tiny is the percentage of ideas that get angel let alone VC funding?  Of those how many companies get acquired?  The chance of getting your dollar back for the failed lottery ticket may actually be tiny.

This article feels akin to those who didn't think Andy Warhol shouldn't be called an artist.  As if doing so would sully the pedestal on which they place other artists that they admire.  In other words, why bother with such a proposal?  Do you find it diminishing when a so called "Hobbyist" call themselves an entrepreneur?
