BusinessWeek 140806

The 14 August BusinessWeek tells me the general view in the Valley is that these two are worth $500m.

I’m going to have to post sometime soon on hype curves and value curves if you get my message.

Digg (cover story) is also touted as being worth a lot – $200m in this case.  Now Digg is cool and now I think about it should have had a mention in my last post on social search and collaborative filtering, but I’m reminded of Moreover an investment we had when I was at Reuters Greenhouse – gazoodles of traffic from a news aggregation email service but never able to monetise it successfully.  Sold to Verisign last year for a rumoured c$40m if I remember correctly.
