But there have actually been two tenders on SecondMarket since the Facebook IPO, although SecondMarket couldn’t tell us which companies did them or what the prices were. Twitter may also be able to grow into its valuation with improved revenues, even if the surrounding market performs poorly. Maybe it was a panicky, “train is leaving” effect where buyers rushed in. 1,000 True Fans.

Robert “I-get-excited-by-nearly-any-start-up” Scoble was so bored he was playing Hangman via Twitter with Paul Carr. Marc Andreessen praised Udorse—a company that he joked would make the world a worse place if it succeeded—because at least it was a new idea.
