back to article Take your hands off me - I'm a tech VC superstar!

Effendi, entrepreneurs! The Bongster is back from Texas! Every year, the brightest talent in Shoreditch's vibrant tech scene swaps the workspaces and mentor-ins of N1 and E2 for the sweet smelling grass of Austin, Texas, for SXSWi. And so did I. As the founder of ¡Bong! Ventures, I am the enabler behind some of the best-known …

      Oh come on, the timings right what with the digital roundabout bollocks. Plus the line about being a "seed investor in Bomis" made me chuckle.

    Someone really needs to do a parody of these venture capital funded, buzzword spewing Shoreditch types.

    Please tell me this is a guest post by Sacha Baron Cohen

    And that there is a spoof film coming up where Baron Cohen plays a tosspot from the wrong public school with not quite enough connections who thinks he "gets" "web2.0" and "social"...

    The worrying thing I had to re-read this to make sure that it was a piss-take. I've read this sort of article too often and found that it wasn't.

    AI Bridge Presently Too Far as Evidenced by the Lack of Media Hosting of Future Intelligence

    It would be very nice to believe that Team UKGB gets it, and that those who would be thought responsible for the invention and daily care and survival and growth of global leadership memes, [as opposed to being just after the fact puppet reactors to third party activated events] actually know how and why IT and Virtual Space InterNetworking works and is impossible to defend oneself against and/or defeat.

    Methinks though they are still missing those vital key elements that will deliver all that they need.

    Go on, El Reg/Steve Bong, prove me wrong and let the fine tale you have spun be a SMART Phorm of Phish BetaTesting. :-)

    The world could certainly do with AI Quantum Leap Change before the present top tier systems administrations implode because of their Entrenched Ignorance of Virtual Deed Control with Remote Space Powers ......... which would be akin to the SELF-REGENERATIVE INCORRUPTIBLE ENTERPRISE THAT DYNAMICALLY RECOVERS WITH IMMUNITY sought here? ..... ...... but sadly paying peanuts for monkeys and restricted to a lowly subset with the following caveat, ...."All foreign allied participation is excluded at the prime contractor level."

    I wonder if the MOD have anything remotely similar, or are they as dinosaurs in the field?

    Things I have found to be true

    Oh, and one more thing

    Regarding AI Bridge Presently Too Far as Evidenced by the Lack of Media Hosting of Future Intelligence, whom would one ask to find out officially? They, [those thought to be and/or those thinking themselves to be leaders] do tend to hide themselves away from ad hoc communications to avoid having to prove themselves competent/incompetent in novel fields.
