Calacanis vs. DHH

This is all kinds of awesome...

The video starts 47 minutes in, and I think it's worth watching. I've called out Calacanis before as being out of touch, and this shows it too. The idea of just having a sustainable and profitable company is totally lost on him. And he tries to blow off DHH's opinion as just inexperience, which annoys the piss out of me. Calacanis also likes to use the tech giants as examples of why his Silicon Valley startup mentality is correct. What he fails to accept is that those success stories are all fringe cases. For each one of those there are thousands of failures. Who cares if you're solving the "big problem," just solve "a problem" and ask for money in return. Why is that so hard?
