      It's neither. It's satire, which is best delivered with an absolutely straight face as seen here.

    From the facebook POV, I would say it's resounding success. They sold something for a lot more then it was worth and walked away with the cash, laughing. I call that a sucessfull buisness deal

    Successful? Really?

    Market Cap of USD104bn on the day of the IPO...Market Cap of USD59bn right now.

    Stock price down over 25% from its high. Way to go Sparky!!

    This is the most ego-centric, self congratulatory & badly written piece of prose i have read for quite some time.

    That is all.

      At least, I REALLY hope it is...

    for the uncertain few among us

    ... I think you'll find the clue to this article is in the word 'Shoreditch'.

    What was this? Was it a joke or was it the dying words of a washed up Silicon Valley has-been riding his ego to insider trading charges?

    I'm simply not sure. I am certain is was a load of crap either way though.

    it beggars belief...

    ...that so many reg readers *still* don't get it.

    that said, it's almost impossible to differentiate !bong! from fig lover, until you realise that one of them takes themselves very seriously indeed, while the other is clearly one of us driven insane by the stench of bulshit from shoreditch.

      Hmm, I thought it seemed to be improving a little. Though admittedly from a rather low base.

    Well - they do say sequels aren't usually as good.

      Nah. Stob has clues. This idiot apparently doesn't.

        Re: It's Verity Stob

        You mean placing it in Bootnotes, the way it was written, the location of his VC company and the obviously implausible content of the article itself wasn't enough for you?

    That's the funniest thing I've read all day. 100% style.

    1. Oninoshiko
