  1. Why is this news, Om?

    This insignificant little git is of no more interest than being an also-ran in three badly failed start-ups.

    That’s hardly a qualification for coverage by a serious news organization.

    Just by covering this idiot, you’re endorsing a non-entity, because he has certain keywords on his resume.

    Being a “bad boy” is not interesting. Anybody can be a “bad boy”. Invite me to your next party and I promise I will be a bigger cock than any Napster-founding tosser could ever manage.

    Rise above. Cover interesting. Not cocks.


  2. I was going to contribute an informative comment, but your immature and pointless graphic pretty much eliminated my desire to do so. Just sayin’.

    Oh, and Kevin Murphy — criticism, from a guy who runs a blog called “Texturbation”? You can’t possibly be serious…

    I really don’t understand why all of the bloggers feel a need to paint Parker as a “bad boy.” Large numbers of Silicon Valley executives could be easily labeled “alcoholic douchebags,” but I don’t see any of that happening … What gives? He isn’t young enough for you to hate him solely based on his age, so I’m thinking it’s just a general desire to find some sort of tabloid-type story to increase the traffic?

  3. Kevin,

    why is it interesting: well whatever anyone thinks of Sean, he is a good trend spotter and is someone who has been pretty accurate in picking out what could be big next.

    Why is this news? Come on in the same way Gary Sheffield’s next team is news – this is news as well.

  4. I agree with Numair and Om, like it or not Sean Parker has a damned good eye for trends. I’ve often said that between this and Peter’s ability to forecast commodities markets, they could run a psychic reading business.
