    Oh shit, that's why I'm here. Could you please write some PHP and COBOL for my new startup MonkeyButterDotCom? And also give me some money, and all your slipmats.

    Sorry, having horrible flashbacks to the dot-com hangover. Getting together with the former CEO of an ISP that had just succumbed to a hostile takeover, getting our pitch together, touting for startup capital ... and making our first presentation pitch on 12 September, 2001.

    (There is a reason I write for a living these days.)

    was that supposed to be a genuine professional appeal (whatever the hell that is)? sounded more like someone looking for a high school summer job. maybe their entrepreneurial endeavor is a lemonade stand...

      You'd be astonished how fuckwitted most self-proclaimed entrepreneurs are.

      The existence proof is in your spam trap.
