@sverdrup, when you bother to read the full article is you will see that he EARNED his venture capital with TRIMIT. A company took a chance and gave him 300k and told him to improve it and expand on his capabilities.. in other words..he WORKED IT! stop knocking him down cause he actually worked at a dream and succeeded and step up yourself!
Kudos to the dude..he took the chance, and also to the company that took a chance..and it succeeded!
