No VC after the dot-com bust? No problem!
Just sign up for eight no-annual-fee credit cards with interest rates as low as 1.7 percent (for a few months, anyway), and shazam: You've got $35,000; you're a start-up! Question: Has this guy read a newspaper in, say, the last 18 months?

Luckyluncher.com Launches With $42 in Angelo Financing
Found this on Business Wire:
"A new web site to help Silicon Valley stock option refugees enjoy the extravagant lunches of yesteryear started today with $42 in Angelo financing.
That's Angelo financing, not Angel financing. 'My friend Angelo loaned me the 42 bucks to register the domain name' explains co-founder Gary Cook."

Can Linux be anything more
than a Server/Developer OS without something like Eazel? Will the open-source community be able to do anything productive with its code
? Or have we just reached a point where the OS is superfluous?

Story talks about stupid dot-com ideas who are having trouble getting funding. But somehow this ugly site
burns through $50,000/month. How? Why can't someone give me
some of that cash?

Does anyone really believe that most VC firms wouldn't back a solid business plan only because a woman ran the company? The argument sounds like parity for the sake of parity, without merit.

While I still work on my writeup of the event, let me share one URL I heard there for the first time. eCompanies.com
is a consortium of successful Netprenuers in the LA area that want to fund your
great idea. It looks like they will accept and review business plans and offer venture captial to those deemed worthy.
