  1. The link to the BusinessWeek article about LinkedIn that you provide by way of explaining the “$100 million revenue” issue actually is quite clear — LinkedIn is PROJECTING $100MM revenues in 2008. Well, that projection and $1.75 will get you a coffee at Dunkin Donuts. LinkedIn may be a great company and may actually do $100MM revenues in 2008, but they are raising money now for the same reason every other startup does — they cannot fund the company thru operations (that is, they are not yet profitable, or profitable enough) and so need outside capital.

    No shame in that, of course. But the relentless hyping and repeating of the $100MM revenue number, completely out of context, is embrassing to sya the least?
