    In the near term it is hard to see these problems getting any better. I think some business angels will be missed, but some will not. We are paying the price for short-termism at the moment and to avoid these problems again we need people who invest to build strong businesses. The current fast buck VC model is not that. I say good riddance!

    This is true — in difficult times, strong models survive.
    I guess this is right time to pay our respect to Darwin for survival of the fittest.
