FSB Daily 8/8: All About Money

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

A roundup of recent posts on the FSB News page.

- This article from The Wall Street Journal asks the question: Have we gotten to the point where Internet startups don’t need the help of venture capital? Ours is an industry built on Web startups, so the question is clearly pertinent. Although the article doesn’t necessarily answer it — it would be foolish to think there is a single right answer — it does raise some interesting points for consideration.

- opened a series to look at pay content online last month, pointing to fantasy sports as one area in which such models work.

- The NCAA clarified Thursday its policy of not allowing championship events to take place in states that support single-game betting. Montana, which made news last year by launching a fantasy-style lottery game, is not subject to that ban.

- has launched another stock-market type of game.
