Do We Need A New Henry Blodget?

from the I-certainly-hope-not dept

Here’s an article suggesting that to get the e-commerce and internet world going again, we need another Henry Blodget to champion the internet on Wall Street again. Blodget, of course, is the guy who never met a dot com he couldn’t hype. I have no idea what the writer of this article is thinking, but I think the last thing we need is another person hyping bad business models. We need what we’ve needed all along. People who look at things with a critical eye, and who aren’t quick to either hype or condemn ideas. Unfortunately, the people who get the attention are the ones who focus on the extremes.
