A rant: I hate the "in crowd" subtext that goes on with all these postmortem posts.

People in-the-know know what company and people are being discussed in these posts. Accordingly, "I know privileged information." banter is thrown around.

I wish that, for the sake of those outside the loop (me at least), people either name-names or take the wink-nods to a private message.

This is probably going to be a very unpopular (ie: negative karma) rant, but those of us outside the SV echo-chamber get hit by this all the time.

Read on to the comments below. You are "in the loop" ;)


Hit by it all the time? Where do you live? Vegas?

If the SV echo chamber extends to Texas, you might be right about the club.

She's just being careful! If she has brought the company down by explaining her position she may get in all sorts of trouble by naming them too.

Lawyers would love to take her down if there's been a lot of money creamed. He'll probably use this HN thread to blame her for his company failure.
