This Thursday, WebGuild’s Annual Conference – Web 2.0, The New Web

I’m going through my calendar of upcoming events, and it looks like I’ll have time to make it to the WebGuild 2006 Annual Conference: Web 2.0 – The New Web.

The crowd Chris Shipley DEMO is…

Dead 2.0 Runs Killer Article – Should VCs fund bloggers’ wet dreams?

Skeptic over at Dead “Twenty” – inside joke– ran an impressive post today regarding the ideas, benefits, and consequences of blogs taking VC funding. I’ll run a few excerpts, but make sure to jump over there and read the full article. He starts by asking, “So the question is, can bloggers successfully build businesses that are worth funding?” Then continues, “An even better question is: why raise the money?” His post explores the market as well as high profile funded…
