LinkedIn buys SlideShare

WOW! my mind is being blown no one cares about revenue models or profitability anymore

"LinkedIn buys Slideshare$120m" -


  1. Come on, doesn't content and eyeballs account for anything anymore?

  2. Only if you can show me that by shipping heavy bags of dog food at loss that there is a hockey stick curve in your future.

    I mean seriously it seems that the name of the game is raise a truckload of money. Spend it until you look big enough to convince someone to kick in an oil tankers worth in the next round and then sell the final behemoth to someone for a sum that every stands back and goes wow those guys were smart.

    As long as you really never show anything but blue sky opportunity then you’re golden.
