The Trouble with Investor Bloggers

A controversial anti-Evite post at Venturebeat from an investor in a competitor is understandably drawing heavy criticism. Why? Because it isn’t until the second-last paragraph that piece’s author, aw shucks, confesses (“But you know what, there may be an alternative”) to being an investor in a competitor.

My take: I like Matt, and I love controversy, but I think it was a mistake to
publish this bit of loose-jawed self-promotion with the lede buried.


  1. I agree, Paul. I posted something on it here
