I will hold an IPO in December and the shares will be priced at $85 (of course, there will 58,823,529,411 shares outstanding).
You can obtain a prospectus by sending me $25 by PayPal. ;)
Learning from Facebook
Om Malik and Kara write about the rumors that Microsoft is about to acquire a 5% stake in Facebook at a valuation of $10 billion.
Here are some practical ways of applying this method (there is a method to this madness) to great advantage in other spheres of life:
- Propose with a 1% 10-Caret Diamond Ring: This would be 0.1 Caret ring but would make your fiance feel like a (1o-Caret) Princess (cut).
- Tell your boss you have been offered a $300K job: You can ensure that you are not lying by asking your friend (who will then be your BFF) to pay you $10 for a 3-minute chore such as washing a dish. The trick is to annualize your salary.
- Tell friends your blog gets 7.27 million-views-per-year: Note that you must not state that you get 7.27 million views in one year. In stead, state that you got hit at this rate - the trick is to measure over a 10 second period where you get 2 or more hits.
