@sir That's the problem - the whole Silicon Valley ethos of "fake it till you make it" and evading regulations because "it is better to ask forgiveness than permission" encourages fraud. But when there is so much money being made it is very difficult to stop.
@humanetech @sir Yes, I was careful to call it the Silicon Valley ethos rather than HN ethos. I did write on HN a months or so back that "I have a theory that IT is split into 'doers', i.e. the people who do things, and 'talkers', i.e. the people who talk about doing things. By definition, you hear from the talkers more, perhaps because the doers are too busy actually doing things ... in HN's defence, you do hear more from actual doers here than perhaps anywhere else."
