Who says the guy on the front side of the paycheck isn't making money?

The more I see what goes on out there, the more I'm convinced that some people are just really good at spending others money. It doesn't matter if they turn a profit or not, as long as those original funders get their money back out, no one cares about the rest of the investors.

Think about it, given the chance, how many of us would take on a job that could put a million or three in our bank accounts even though, in the end we knew we were destined to fail. Guys like me will try to talk the money people into a better idea, some out there though, will say "Sure thing, I'll get right on that project!"

I think the stock market and the futures markets are two of the most sinister industries out there. They manipulate far more of the average person's life than they ever should. About the only things worse are elected officials and trial lawyers :-)

In Louisville I hear them affectionately called US Clueless. The name really caught on a few years ago as they announced and subsequently deployed a new technology 900 MHz system and spent tremendous dollars and made lots of noise both publicity and in rf spectrum, I think I remember hearing around 500K for the phase 1 roll out.

After a couple of front page spin articles in the Courier Journal, came the third, a picture of an engineer on the roof at their transmitter and a caption below saying "it isn't working as well as we had hoped." You can't buy better coverage.

With that said, I know some of the folks leftover from the days of Darwin that ended up at US Wireless and wish them well.

A press release from 2003 discussed 500 enterprise customers. Surely those numbers changed since their 2005 buying spree, 8 or 9 companies that included Iskywire, VOIPWorks, United Broadband Networks, and Yyireless1 Net that I can remember. As Mr Leary said another post a conglomeration.

In watching this unfold for the last 10 or more years, the lesson I've learned is that all the spin, money, and high level partnerships and contacts you have, or even the products you buy, won't make a lick of difference if you never execute a business plan and actually make money.
