I particularly liked the 3 chaps who were looking for 0.5m funding for a
mainstream, b2c & b2b renting & selling property web service, who stated in
a presentation to a VC that the 0.5m seed financing would fund all the
online and offline marketing / development."

The programme was unbelievably cynical and a tad off-balance for my liking.

However, that said, managing to find 3 idiots like those guys was a
producers' dream - they blatantly didn't know their arses from their elbows.
Unfortunately presenting daft nutters like that pretty well sabotages
everybody else's hopes. I almost fell off my chair when they mentioned how
much they wanted, and how much they were going to give away for it. Every
VC's dream - or would be if they had had even the remotest potential, which
they didn't seem to.

anyway in summary, to quote derek & clive "laugh? i nearly sh*t"

But hey ho, it's bash new media month - wait til July and the journos will
have stopped recycling each others' stories again and get back to finding
some real news.

apologies to decent journos - used to be a crap student hack meself. . .

over & out,
