The Space Cynic Challenge to Alt.Space May 23, 2006

Well.

It appears we seem to have ruffled a few feathers out in the alt.space community by creating this blog.

We’ve been accused of being snarky, condescending, and judgemental.

Perhaps.

But here’s a chance to prove to us that you (and you know who you are) have an alt.space business that is a “dream” business (which we DO like) as opposed to a “kool-aid” business (which we, um… don’t like).

Space Cynics will gladly review your business plan/case/whatever, and post our findings on our website. We will allow you room for rebuttal, and will respond to any substantive criticisms (but this will not become an open-ended he said/she said – we will stop the dialog if it becomes unresolvable).

The cost? $2500.

We all have paying jobs and families/friends (no, i mean we have families and friends, not that they pay us), so if we’re going to take time out of our schedules to do a due diligence of sorts, you have to put some skin in the game.

If we DO like your business – and I daresay I am personally a big fan of quite a few alt.space companies, believe it or not – we will be happy to endorse your project when you go to talk to other investors. We may even make some introductions for you, free of charge – and/or invest ourselves in your business.

Operators are standing by.

You are generally snarky, condescending, and judgemental. Doesn’t mean you aren’t right. Just not fun to read. Think about it .

Doesn’t mean you aren’t right. Just not fun to read.

Perhaps. But as this is still a free internet, you are welcome to not read this blog.

Some day, if we’re lucky, all space enthusiasts WILL be required to read space-cynic before starting an alt.space company.

That, by the way is a joke.

Sort of.

I just mean be right and don’t be snarky. Catching flies with honey as they say… (If it didn’t come across, I am sorry) BTW the new posts are great. Must more substance, must less snarky.
