Web 2.0 Haikus

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, have been very busy in the last week.

I was at lunch with some friends and started typing out some viral marketing haikus on my phone – so secondly, sorry for the bad haikus that follow:

Viral marketing
Friends who spam you all the time
Aren’t really your friends

Just raised some V C

Social websites make no cash

Google can’t save you

Techcrunch Valleywag
Techmeme Mashable and more
Why work? Just read blogs

Fickle teenagers

Herded ruthlessly for cash

You got an invite

Lack of retention

Viral loops are not enough

You just jumped the shark

Please post your own in the comments ;-)

PS. Get new updates/analysis on tech and startups

I write a high-quality, weekly newsletter covering what's happening in Silicon Valley, focused on startups, marketing, and mobile.
