This is great.
What I’m seeing now with a lot of these Web 2.0 companies is that they’re not based on technology, but on a dog-and-pony show. Under the surface, there’s nothing noteworthy going on.
You know you’re a bullshit company when your core technology is Ajax. If the business is every widget under the sun conglomerated into this giant application, there’s no real technology there. There’s no noteworthy computer-science problem being solved. The Ajax stuff is pre-written. You just have to go to the libraries and put it all together.
