I saw this article this morning on Techcrunch. I’m always amazed when I see websites being sold for exhorbitant amounts of money ($50M in this case, $600M in another case named in the article.) I’m amazed because I know I can create sites like these. I don’t have the ideas, or the time, or the money — but I do have the know-how. It’s not that I don’t have ideas, it’s just that I don’t have the right ideas.
Although I guess it’s like the a lot of things, if you don’t try you’ll never succeed. If you don’t buy that lottery ticket, you’ll never win. If you don’t try inventing a better mouse trap, you never will. Well, maybe I should set out build that better mouse trap and hope that NBC or some other huge corporation with lots of extra dough around will see it, want it and buy it.
Anyone have any ideas?
I’ll cut you in for 10% if I hit it big. No, wait.. make that 5%. Wait, if it’s $100M, that would be $5M….. better make it 1%, I can’t afford to give away $5M.
