“The message is simple. Raising capital will be much more difficult now.”

Still care to debate the point?

He also said:
One thing Ron made clear in a conversation with me today. He’s not worried about the state of innovation in Silicon Valley, and he isn’t going to stop investing.

It was posted in bold, did you miss it, or were you too busy reading between the lines to support your miserable cause? Seriously, what is your major malfunction?

Do you desperately want things to fail because you find perverse pleasure in misery, or do you simply enjoy keeping the company of your feeble minded friend - Fcky-McNumbnuts?

All your problems, and you can’t read either? He’s talking about IT, as he’s based in the Valley. Read the whole article. It made mine and BaldBaby’s point completely. The VC industry will be seeing a decline in participation due to the current instability in the credit markets. Period.

The problem with you and your buddy Lil’Willy is that I’ve gotten soooo deep under your skin that you jump at any opportunity to attack me. This gets you into situations like this one, where you find yourself - once again - defending an indefensible position simply because you want to argue with me. As you end up loosing these arguments, you get more angry, people laugh at you more, and it starts all over again. Its a vicious cycle of ass-kicking that always ends in tears for you. If I were you, I’d pick your fights a little more carefully.

PS. You’re not funny. Not even a little bit. Not even when you recycled year-old jokes like “(insert hilarious word)Mc(insert repetition of hilarious word)”. Humor is outside your ability to understand, as your life has been so sad and lonely for so long that the concept of comedy has become foreign to you. You can’t crack a joke if you haven’t smiled in ten years, but you can spew hate and anger as you’ve proved over and over again. I mean, look at your sig: “In your nightmares”. That’s the response of a deeply disturbed individual who is really angry with the world.

oh I read and understood the article, but I didn’t read your response past the first sentence. That’s how I roll.

The funny thing is that you are the only one who thinks that you “win” these arguments. Why do you come here to argue anyways? You’re a joke and most people who post here see that pretty clearly.

I know, I can’t believed they are still dragging this out and even made a new topic on it.

I think some of the posters in particular, in this thread and the other one could benefit from watching these videos :smiley: They sould be made stickys.

See, this is why you don’t understand the finance world. Let me tell you one thing: anyone who gets his finance news from techcrunch.com is an amateur. If you really want to find out fund raising volumes, go look on Bloomberg. That is what I use everyday. A lot of news items are hyped-up to attract readership.

This is how VC works - funds raise a truckload of money, after which they have an investment period of eight years (depends on fund mandate). A lot of biotech funds have raised enough money that they will be able to fund good ideas for the next eight years. So, whilst this credit crunch is unfortunate, it is not going to affect VC funding today or tomorrow, or in the next 3-5 years. Post that, it is likely the credit crunch will have ended and the economy will move to its cyclical upswing.

If is it so hard to raise capital, tell me how Follica raised money so easily within the space of a year? Answer THAT question.

But whatever, I’m done debating with you. You’re not wanting a new perspective. What you want to just to “win” an argument, and if that is so important to you, and happiness in your life revolves around winning arguments on Hairsite, then congratulations fckhrls, you win! You are the man! Why you spend so much time here, when you clearly have a hot wife and a great job in pharma and all the other great things in life clearly befuddles me, but of course, I am not as intelligent as your good self. Indeed, may of us suspect that you are lying through your teeth about your wife and your job. Your tragic need to boast about your wife and your great life continuously (rather than enjoy them both) is indeed a great puzzlement to me. Perhaps, maybe that wife is just imaginary?

You’re assuming that every VC closed its funding cycle three weeks ago, which is - of course - not the case. Many will be looking to recapatilize in the next 1-3 years, and some even less. When they do, they will find the pool of potential participants significanty smaller.

But this is all academic. Your claim was that the VC market isn’t affected by basic macroeconomics factors. You’ve already conceded as much by even trying to suggest that the VC market can weather the crunch; to claim they can suggests they HAVE to, which is the point you’re arguing against. You’ve been altering your argument ever since, using a variety of fallacies (starting with straw men, and now ad homonyms) in a desperate attempt to save face.

As for the other stuff, you can’t beat me with the truth and logic of your argument, so you simply attack me. Its a tired tactic that others have tried, and it didn’t work for them either. Watch - I can do it to! “Your grasp of economics is weak. The fact that you even uttered Keynes’s name suggests you just got done with macro 101 this semester. I don’t believe you work in capital markets. You’re clearly just an intern in a mail room somewhere!”

Did that have ANYTHING to do with your erroneous position? No. Ad homonyms aren’t about the validity of opinions, and that’s why they are fallacies. The fact that you have now resulted to two speaks volumes about the strength of your argument.

Face it: you made a silly claim, and you’ve employing ever larger fallacies in a desperate attempt to defend it.

The other thing to think about is if someone wants to invest in a potential baldness cure, how long before enough of the general public has the money to pay for the cure?
