You make it sound like the music industry. :-) Most labels are similar to
business incubators in that they sign 10 new artists a month and end up
dropping 9 of them because they didn't manufacture the "hit" they were
looking for. Business failures are common. In the last few years, when the
number of ".COM" start-ups drastically increased, there'll be at least a
proportional increase in failures. This is normal. More people try, more
I think the point I'm trying to get to here is that if you want industry
"rock stars", you're asking for self-serving self-publicists who don't have
the industry's best interests at heart (cough... ICANN). If you want that
from the "geek" community, you should just put Kashpureff and Vixie in the
ring on WWF and publish the results as a BCP. ;-)
