"You Be the VC, is where old-school a venture capital meets pop-culture phemonenon, American Idol -- mixed with dash of Malcolm Gladwell's, The Wisdom of the Crowds."

Wow, after reading that line, I'm not sure whether I'm reading a troll, a thirteen-year-old, or one of those splogs where they mutilate the text of a real blog entry.


Hmm....

Marc Andreesen claims the whole world (or at least Hollywood, but he gives no obvious reason why to stop there) will be rebuilt in Silicon Valley's image....

Facebook is valued at $15billion; Google $200-....; and TechCrunch who knows what....

The Paypal Mafia....

And now this....

I cant find any indication of how much funding they intend to provide, or how much equity they intend to take. Anyone know?


Sure love the fact that they're letting her work on this. Feels great for the shareholder value!
