Interesting post. I was going to write about the same topic at some point but maybe it's unnecessary now :)

I hope that the new round either went to founders or will be used for acquisitions. I think $150M+ that they've raised can kill a great startup.

Hey Chris,

You are so dead on re the weight of all that money in terms of amplified expectations, need to make "big" moves to validate the $$, corporate culture and risk of getting intoxicated by one's own PR.

Btw, Hunch looks like a promising service, triangulating on people types, and cross-matching them to other people, information, products and services.

Best,

Mark

Found another great Twitter eco-system app "Twitter Analyser"...same as google analytics but for Twitter.
