@Donald.McIntyre @JayZ750 @MichaelBlend True... probably 4-6 months old, and little light, but then a lot of sources cite the 30 million MAU number as of year-end 2013...  at least per Google...  so it must be right!

9 months ago on Shocking as it once seemed, Snapchat’s decision to turn down $3B now looks like a no brainer


How do people who rent apartments then sub-lease out their place (be it for a day, night or otherwise) and not violate clauses in their lease agreements?

Congrats to the team.  I like the platform - its nice design, streamlined, seemingly interesting and high potential companies looking for funding.  But I wonder why they raised so much money? $7.5 million seems like a lot to build out the technical team (of a product that doesn't appear "tech heavy").  Valuation has to be looking at big increase in numbers.... even assuming a generous 10% commission (Kickstarter charges 5% plus fees, a placement agent would take 5%-10%, not sure what CircleUp charges) the platform really needs to ramp up in size with the investment.

 @jebbdykstra99 Probably because he was telling Scarborough to put his money where his mouth is.  Old Joe is the one saying it's a toss-up.  I'd not be surprised if Silver was willing to give odds though.  Not that it matters.  Joe won't take the bet - it's "trash talk"!

Maybe he was referring to HomeAway in Austin.  Can anyone point me to info/research on the multiple differences he keeps mentioning.  Thanks.
