OK, so I'm reading this opinion piece by a guy who says what's really wrong are entrepreneurs and VCs in SiliconValley are not willing to take any risks anymore; that the way out of the problem is to find more risk takers. This guy makes his living advising small companies and helping them find funding. I go, "OK. This guy seems to understand the problem." So I send him an e-mail asking him what he's willing to risk to help start-up companies with disruptive approaches.
He says, "Oh I'm not involved in that anymore. You should go talk to some guys in Silicon Valley."
Can we make a rule that before you are allowed to start to rant about a problem, that you'd at least be willing to make some effort to resolve the problem? What's that? No? Alright. Just thought I'd ask.
