Damn Quora is good

It is a bit of waste of time also, to be fair.  But here’s a great example of where a user hits the nail on the head.

I'm 1 co-founder out of 3. I came up with the original idea but can't commit more than 5 hours/week as I have a full-time job. However, I have 30 years of experience and an extensive network that will advance the company tremendously. I think that with that we should all have the same equity. Do you agree?

 

 

 

This guy Eric – gives a great example of how to divvy up the equity on a company based on Market Value of the work that you are doing.

 

Love it!

I had to vent to this guy.  And it feels good.

Hi [snip],

No.

Look.. I'll be honest with you.  I´m an entrepreneur and programmer.  For years I've been setting up web businesses and have always been frustrated by "domainers" who I see as nothing but carpetbaggers, adding no value whatsoever to my ventures.    Whilst I have bought domains with traffic, I very rarely buy a "this domain is for sale"-domain.

I cannot tell you how over-the-moon I am about the new TLDs and never again shall I been beholden to someone trying to squeeze a sizable sum out of me for nothing.

Fairey is my wife's maiden name that she still uses professionally.  So I'd buy it as a gift for her, but nothing else.   That puts a sizeable cap on the amount of cash I'd be prepared to spend.

I recall from our previous engagements that the "owners" of this domain are looking for an astronomical sum for doing nothing - our price expectations are so out of alignment and together with the opening of the new TLD space I feel that we will never be on the same page, or even book.

I will please request you cease communications with me.

Best of luck with your business model.

Thanks for your time,

Karl

Wouldn't it be great to work together and create a "distributed search engine" with the index spread across thousands of peer...
