Google Contrarianism is Looking Better and Better

As I predicted some time ago, the parade of negative Google IPO articles is growing. Both the NY Times and Dow Jones are out with stories today listing all the tech execs and related digerati who won’t be buying shares in the Google IPO. The two articles include Google “No mas” from everyone from Steve Wozniak to Jerry Kaplan to Geoff Tate (Rambus).

It is getting temping to take the other side of this trade. Who wouldn’t be itching to be on the other side given all this crankiness, and given the well-publicized delays and problems in the Google offering? A few more negative articles like these two and an awful lot of folks will be having to chew their arm off not to get a Google bidder ID.
