10/5    any UC berkeley students that had successful startups
        in the past 15 years?
        \_ all the Cal grads I know with MBAs are in VC or finance.
           maybe they are just better at risk analysis... starting a company
           is not a great way to make money!
           \_ I'm a Cal grad with an MBA working in Finance (not High Finance).

5/7    (I am revising my numbers, in my fit of rage at 4am in the morn,
        I made some math errors I didn't feel like correcting.  anyway...)
        I work at a year old startup, 50 employees, pre-IPO (duh!), exit
        strategy is to either become profitable company or get bought,
        almost profitable but not quite, fast paced, lots of work,
        everyone pulls weight, I just found out my non founder CEO makes

9/11    I think I have a nifty idea for a software project, but since
        I am not independently wealthy AND I don't feel like having it
        ripped off so that I wind up with nothing, I was wondering if
        the MOTD could advise me on how I could wisely go about getting
        funding for this project, and protect myself.  If I should only
        stick with close friends and relatives, then I will do so.

10/5    Hypothetical question: Suppose there's a shortage of resources,
        should the free market take its course which will hopefully
        make self-corrections, or should the government intervene and
        ration resources? What are the pros and cons for either approaches?
        \_ don't know about pro and con, I just know that in reality,
           free market is never allowed to distribute critical/essential

4/15    I'd like to recycle my empty glass bottles of Corona beer, except
        they have lime slices in them? What do i do?
        \- residential level recycling is basically pointless so do whatever
           you want. do you think people carefully sort their newspapers vs
           "other paper"? --psb
           \_ I actually do.

10/19   They are laying off 5 people in my group within the next two
        weeks? Don't know who yet, they won't tell us. What should I do
        in preparation?
        \_ How many in your group?  Work on your resume.  Start your job
           search now.  Don't wait to get axed.  If you have, uh, "special
           access", abuse it and read HR and Finance's email to see who is

6/21    Anybody in a startup right now?  How is it like?  layoffs and money
        running out?  I keep getting calls from startups and I'm wondering if
        I should leave my cushy job to risk it all.  Thanks.
        \_ make sure they pay cash.
          \_ up front.
            \_ and ask for 2 forms of ID

11/17   What are the implications (URL would be great) of being an officer
        of a company? I'm VP Eng of a new startup, and I'm wondering how/why
        I should push to be an officer.
        \_ I don't know if you have vc funding yet, but _unless_ you are really
           really really hip and profitable, VCs replace all the "O"s in a
           startup after they give you money and move in their own O's.

7/14    Could someone give me a salary estimate for an entry level java
        programmer...say in northern vs. southern california?
        \_ easily and with real examples:
           karenp (large co in silicon valley: starting : 80K)
           \_ 80K for entry_level?  what for 4yr+ exp?
           \_ hey, how do you "always answer a question literally" dorks

        \_ I like how they grow to great lengths to talk about "Project
           Mercury" without ever actually explaining what "Project
           Mercury" is.  This is just another moronic
           startup.  There is no new ground breaking technology here
           just like all those other stupid startups who claim they
