Who Will Be Hurt Most When The Tech Bubble Bursts? Not VCs | TechCrunch
In a nutshell, FOMO is driving many investors in a hustle to be a part of the next Facebook or Twitter and put in huge investments for a fraction of stake. And, they don’t see much risk in it as long as they get the downside protection. [ growth round = rocket fuel splashed onto stuff to acquire more customers and market share (basically, but not always) ] [...] Someday, pretty soon, these will be put to the test, and valuations based on visibility of earnings will matter again. A few will succeed of course, but several others will fall – it remains to be seen how miserably. VCs will most likely walk away with their invested money, if not more. It’s the employees and founders who will see their million-dollar dreams crash and burn. [living beyond ur means & betting dollars you dont have on a time that seems further away than u can even guess (secular stagnation)] [lack of income growth (across the western world) thus disposable income (discretionary spending) is also not helping]

growth can't be infinite in a finite world population. PERIOD. revenue 2x more worth for that margin - in terms of apples to apples company valuation. long-term thinking applies; we can later improve margins. lets focus on scale. market dominance/relevance. [...] getting over the 1bn figure is hard. Instagram. ... WhatsApp ... FB was overpaying (19bn) in order to have it, be relevant in that space, and not let it have anybody else. PERIOD. Was Strategic as Instragram was for Pictures (vertical). [...] Patent system is, can be, stifling in many ways. Because it serves as distraction from the Vision, the Product and the Execution. The current overall patent environment is prohibitive to innovation.
