Friday Night Links

Friday Night Lights

A couple of remarkable riffs on my blog subscribers post—one for small businesses and one that elaborates on the original extremely well.

Jason Calacanis’ VC-funded Mahalo is either the sock puppet of Web 2.0, or the of Web 2.0. Your choice, but those truly are the only two alternatives.

    Seriously, take a look at some of search results when you have a chance and compare them to Google, Yahoo, and Ask’s and I think you’ll find there is a place for us in the world.


  2. I agree. Tropical did a sweet job modifying the theme. Well done.


  3. Mahalo for the constructive feedback!

    Jason, there’s nothing I can say that hasn’t been said. If I’m wrong, I’ll be the first to say it, but I can’t see it happening. And don’t try to blame it on a lack of vision. 😉

  4. I thing you mean “when you’re wrong” 😉

  5. I guess hindsight is the best determiner of the appropriate adverb. :)

  6. Thank you for the link Brian. I’m glad you enjoyed the post and thank you for the inspiration.

  7. If you’re looking for funding from the VCs I’m sure the first thing people are thinking is; will Google buy this company in six-12 months?

  8. Thanks for the Digg alternatives Brian.
