What you say is probably true, but I sure have trouble, reading the financial press, seeing how there's any `there' there for companies like Zaplet and NQL (now trading under 0.50/share, i.e. losing 90%+ of its value over the past year) I can't find much about `Groove' (unless it's `Modern Groove Entertainment Inc) though, so I can't comment on them. ...

Or, alternatively, perhaps to occasional rushes of sanity in an otherwise foggy futuristic cloud (of blue smoke?) ... After all, VC money is _very_ easy to find these days. It's just not in the hands of the VCs any longer....
