Itâ€™s just morning here in SF so I have just seen this post. The below is my initial response, but I have to go offline imminently (I am in San Francisco on the trip in question) so Iâ€™m just rattling this off nowâ€¦.
I think itâ€™s rather strange of Carsonifiedâ€™s Ryan Carson to go â€œattack dogâ€ now when he could have called any one of the WebMission partners weeks ago when this trip was announced and put together. But hey, he has a right to criticise, itâ€™s a democracy after all
_ This is Ryan’s post
This is being backed by some pretty smart people, including UK Trade & Investment, Oracle, Mike Butcher, Paul Walsh, Oli Barrett, Huddle, Doug Richard (ex Dragonâ€™s Den), Atlas Ventures, Michael Birch (founder of Bebo), HSBC, Sun Microsystems and James Murray Wells (GlassesDirect.com) â€¦ so why is it such a bad idea?
