wait, does jwz really expect us to believe that he doesn't know who arrington is? I mean, the techcrunch conference afterparty two years ago was at his night club .. and I am pretty sure i saw both of them there.
In this instance, identification of the individual VC responsible for this specific instance of The Lie is not important. Leaving him unnamed helps us abstract out the pattern to its most condensed brown residue, so we can recognize it on our feet should walk at night in the park, or frequent certain scene sites.
Also, it's not that jwz doesn't know the dude, it's that jwz just doesn't give a fuck.
Just asked jwz, turns out he really doesn't know the guy.
CORRECTION: My cost is $20,000 in the piece. Please re-read the piece. In it I state:
-- four months of f/t training with a $200k teacher.
-- 20 students per for months, so 80 students a year / $200k
-- i added 20% for admin so it's $240k / 80 students
-- add $1-2k per student for space
-- four months onsite at $1k a month = 4k per student
that's around $10k per person
i say later in the piece double it.... so $20k a student.
now, not every student is ready for this type of training. but where does a boot camp like this exist?
