The systems we put in place assumes we avoid customers as much as possible; now that customers can talk to each other, they are speaking to each other when they can’t speak a company directly.

It seems to me, this panel, is really about how to produce and find relevant news and information, when there is so much content, that we’re overwhelmed.
How did each person on the panel get funding? An Entrepreneur needs to be optimistic.
Larry Kramer – had savings, stopped taking clients, develop new product.
ELISA Page – first BlogHer was done on credit cards. She asked herself? What’s the worst that could happen?
Michelle Madhok – I never raised any money. Woke up each day and asked herself “what can I do to make money, today”?
Ben Lerer – you can never have enough money. What we had is a voice that was unique and investors who understood it.
