Welcome to Ask the Wizard
I'm going to attempt to get back to regular blogging in the hopes that a specific topic will motivate me to post here frequently. The specific topic I've got in mind is helping Internet entrepreneurs (particularly first-time entrepreneurs) navigate the waters of a startup. There are sixty or seventy great Venture Capital blogs out there, and only a few that look at startup issues from the entrepreneur's perspective.
I'm not really going to use this as a question and answer forum, although I get lots of email from startups, so I may occasionally post based on those emails. The title of this blog is really just something that made FeedBurner cofounder Matt and I laugh, and it also brings to mind the Wizard of Oz, in which unsuspecting Dorothy only realizes too late that the Wizard is just another jackass with stage lights. I generally subscribe to the perspective over at Long or Short Capital on How to become a Billionaire and don't want anybody to think that I've got special knowledge, so take everything I say here with a grain of salt. It's just more information that startups can hopefully use to make more informed decisions. Caveat Emptor.
First things first, I've got to get the layout nailed down here, burn my feed of course!, and then we'll be off and running.
