Calacanis Calls the Startup Depression, Still Not Blogging

Filed as News on September 30, 2008 12:47 am

And he does it on his blog, which he incidentally still won’t be use to do any blogging, despite it having numerous updates. Fun stuff, that.

Now, I promised myself I was retired from blogging to focus on my email newsletter, but I’m getting pounded with so many requests for this essay that I’m giving up and posting it here. This does not mean my retirement from blogging is off, this means I’m posting this so I don’t have to respond to hundreds of emails asking for a copy.

The actual essay is from his mailinglist, which you can sign up for here. If you already subscribe to Jason’s emails, you’ve already read most of this. However, the additional comments for the blog post is interesting, and also shows why blog posts are a better way of communicating with several people at once, than email.

Regarding the recent stock market drop:

I’m just not panicking. Great entrepreneurs build value and market-share in down markets. They go to work seven days a week and the breakout when other folks check out.

I’m sure a lot of people would be interested in hearing your point of view on the drop, especially since it followed the Startup Depression email essay.
