@sarahlacy It's my blog post you mention above. I agree there are all kinds of biases and inaccuracies in the seed data. My conclusion from the analysis is that the number of Series As is growing, the share of total investments Series As represent is growing and that the dollars flowing into venture capital are relatively constant. It's impossible to compare seed investments or company formation statistics since they are so poor. But we can conclude that the Series A market is healthy, if not vibrant.

If you believe Spotify's business model is much better, I think you need to prove the unit economics are better. If the PrivCo numbers are to be believed (http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57526690-93/is-spotifys-business-model-broken/), Spotify's cost of sales are nearly 100% of their revenues, where Pandora's are only 60% (http://www.google.com/finance?q=NYSE%3AP&fstype=ii&ei=HtJwUOjrMoabiALNTA)
