Ups And Downs Of Startup Life

from the it's-not-so-bad-if-you-have-millions-of-dollars dept

A year ago there were stories of young dot com execs who were filthy stinking rich. I guess the idea this year is to do slightly “tamer” stories on dot com execs who aren’t quite as rich. The thing that bugs me about this story is that it doesn’t make the guy out to be all that interesting or smart. It just makes it sound like he was in the right place at the right time and got lucky. So, of course it’s no big deal that his current company has struggled a bit. He’s obviously got a few million in the bank. Where are the stories of the dot commers who never got rich at all? There are plenty of them out there.
