What A Crock Of Startup Bullshit

I can't take it anymore. I can no longer continue ignoring Paul Singh's startup bullshit disguised as wisdom. Folks in the know keep forwarding to me ridiculous articles, stupid investments, and silly tweets of Paul's. One of his latest gems, a blog post titled, "You (probably) don't need a MVP, You need a list"  forwared to me with the subject line, Do You Believe This Shit? Yes, I sure as shit do because I consider the source. It's Paul Singh, the "prestigious," prestidigitating street performer from the traveling medicine show of startup bullshit. The man who packed up all his earthly possessions into an Airstream trailer, left DC and his Family behind in a cloud of dust. Just in time to beat the crowd of investors and entrepreneurs armed with pitchforks who showed up at his castle (see actual photo below)! [caption id="attachment_78750" align="aligncenter" width="960"] Actual Photo Of DCTech Investors on the way to Paul's House Before They Found Out He Skipped Town[/caption] Since then, he's been traveling to other startup boonies posing as the one-eyed man of startup bullshit in the land of the startup blind. He's the guru of getting it done in startup backwaters like Utica, Kitchenoo, Port Huron, Tallahassee,...

Facebook Hoaxes

It would not be out of character to find Mr. Cranky ranting about the inability for supposedly intelligent people to think critically.  Mostly I apply this criticism to false startup prophets and bullshitocrat (Like for instance the 23-year-old kids who have never run a company, creating an investment fund in a scammy still unproven volatile market like cryptocurrency...

The Real Facebook Crime Scene

"The news media and government are all focused on the Facebook crime of invasion of privacy. That's BS! Users agreed to give their private data away and shame on them for being surprised that they are product.. not the customer (see post). The media like to focus on the sexy stuff about the fake stories on Facebook. Hey, the idiots who believe that Hilary keeps sex slave children in the basement of a Pizza Parlor that has no basement. That's not a Facebook crime...

Jason Feimster the Clown Prince of Venture Capital

Great News for DCTech! Jason Feimster, the clown prince of Venture Capital is back in business! His website is back up. It's still a cheap ass, low-rent, Wix-based web site. It still features a ton of plagiarized content (See the Clown Prince of Venture Capitals plagiarizing post). Feimster's page is still riddled with lies. But, let me say this in defense of the Clown Prince of Venture Capital's website if it was compared to the underlying, "Busines," if the website was a novel it would be, War and Piece, while the business is 50 Shades of Feces (Jason, here's a link to help you figure out what the word "Feces" means). For some strange reason, cough, cough lack of money, Jason's website went AWOL in June. Maybe after being fully invested, he had a cash flow problem and couldn't pay his $6 monthyly web hosting fee (see post). I'm told, but can't verify that his last fund was fully invested when he invested the last nickel in a pack of juicy fruit gum. So he closed 3Si Holdings Fund I. The crack investigative reporting team at Driven Forward were able to obtain the actual complete Fund I portfolio. Here it is: One...

Hear Trustify’s Jen Mellon Lie on June 20th

Yes I know I'm talking about Jen Mellon, the horrible human masquerading as a do-gooder and founder of a great startup and wife of Danny Boice. For my regular readers, this is old hat and you don't have to read it. I know, I'm a bulldog with a bone that won't let go. This post is targeted for those who are not regular readers and who may be taken in by the classy facade of the rotting Potemkin Villiage that is Trustify and it's leaders. There is a group of people, sponsoring a talk by Mellon and these people who are putting their reputations on the line. I can only assume they haven't looked behind the curtain. These sponsors are aiding and abetting criminal activity by seeming to endorse two criminals. Want to hear a bunch of lies? Want to meet a pathological lying sociopath in person? Then come and hear Trustify's Jen Mellon lie about all kinds of things including how she retroactively founded a company (neat trick Jen Mellon). Multiple people forwarded to me the invitation pictured below. Not because they thought the meeting was worthwhile. Even  I, politically incorrect Mr. Cranky won't repeat the Samantha-Bee-Type-verbiage used in the emails making fun of this event featuring Jen...
