VC Horror Tale

Eve Andersson, a founding member of Ars Digita, has published a scalding recounting of the rise and fall of the Internet consultancy and software publisher. It goes into great detail on how the venture capitalists and MBAs destroyed the company and its culture. I had very similar experiences in terms of being led astray by deceitful executive officers, so if nothing else I can attest to its emotional accuracy, and I can say I’m more inclined to sock an MBA across the jaw than I am to trust him with any piece of an enterprise I care about.
