    Mark,

    I wholeheartedly agree. I would also say that I see a lot of startups that are just rehashing existing features and or solving existing business problems. It is a total waste of time and talent.

    I also see startups that are basically like product units that are almost geared to be sold to other companies. There isn’t really a vision there.

    I think that public markets and investors are probably going to figure out exactly what brings a business value and what is just a feature that a bigger company hasn’t got to yet.
