2. This is not a bubble …
… hot parties, overheated
PR pitches, and five or six
dozen social networking
sites are just healthy
indicators of a new b...
3. It's all about community and sharing …
… but we told our venture capitalists that
  our exit strategy will make them rich.
4. Online

… as if click fraud is any kind of a threat.
5. These sites

 mother could

features just like
the rest of them.
10. We look forward to working with
        our new partners @
… take the money, hand over the keys
and step aside. Larry and Sergey are
driving your bus now.
