I noticed that talking to people about so called "marketplace" business (bringing together different groups with complementing needs) ideas gets a lot of people excited, but it seem to quickly turn off investor folks.
Is it just my perception? If not, is it because it is hard for money folks to see a quick exit? Or perhaps because it most likely going to be a long haul? Probably much longer then any Twitter-related byproducts... I personally think that those that can overcome the initial challenges would be in a better position to withstand the competition and sustain the test of times. But it's just my personal opinion. What do you think?
