Sure, three-and-a-half million dollars in venture capital will get you an event at the National Press Club... but a mere $200 will get you a Rocky Mountain Blogger Bash, complete with free beer courtesy of Oskar Blues, at the Denver Press Club (which happens to be the longest continuously operating press club in the United States - it also happens to be next door to a "gentlemen's club").
Do you realize that if Pajamas Media, rather than spending that money on creating a news aggregator, the whole of which is less than the sum of its parts, had given the money to me and David, we could have had 17,500 Rocky Mountain Blogger Bashes?
That is enough RMBBs to last for nigh on 700 generations. Just think of it - millennia hence - one of my descendants could be blogging about their latest podchild, the wee F10x9981, and how later they were going to be gettin' all kinds of intoxicated...on the moon!
You know, living here in the 21st century, we miss out on all the cool stuff - interplanetary space travel, teleportation, scurvy...
