No, I'm not really. I threw out some bait and nobody took it. I had a nice little Mr. Miagi philosophical gem all ready to go and I didn't even get to use it.


Back to sanda da flo!

Peace

Back to the fund raisers then


But seriously I do have one question of Springer... and I understand if this isn't the time or place... but since the money was brought up and you seem in a talkative mood...

And considering you did post this in another forum I see it only fair to ask

I am curious about this 'venture capital market' ATS was working to get into.

Venture capital takes a lot of bucks... my project is looking for 200 million

If you don't know what "the Venture Capital market" is you may want to hire a consultant to help you out my man. Seriously.


There are thousands of companies, individuals and agencies that provide venture capital for start ups if they like the business plan and the people behind it.

Yes the ads cover the costs. The expenses are more than $4,000.00 a month just for the hardware. We use a data center and have load balanced clusters.

That's all you need to know.

OH common!

Don't give us that "its all you need to know!"

I happen to know from a trusted source that ATS makes the 3 amigos so much money they have all retired to the French Riviera and spend their days eating shrimp, drinking fancy wines and relaxing in the sun! They no doubt have a staff that runs the servers.. don't lie Amigos.. I know you made it big!

I KNOW what the 'market' is I already have a consultant and a 'deal' but what I was nosy about was the connection to ATS. I wasn't looking to hit you up

But its okay... as you say... it IS a private business... I guess I will have to wait for the prospectus

Why Doctor Love, I was under the impression you made your cash from that movie casino with Joe Peschy, or was it good fellows as the NJ coin operated amusement company owner. Both were cash operations, easy for the pocket type dealins.

Seriously, I would estimate the value of the Above Network to be around $100 million cash-out value, at this time. It is perfectly positioned as the leader in this field, has fanatical following, and it is definitely a growth area. It also is using some pretty rigorous "scientific marketing" and analysis tools.

I would bet that the value will continue to increase to around a $500 million valuation in the next two years, and will probably reach a $1 billion or more with any luck. (Just a guess.)

#

I want to relate something back to my earlier post, which may be of general interest. I was mentioning that I went to some free tools on the web to estimate the value of ATS.

In addition to the free "valuation estimator" sites, I stupidly filled out a couple of sites with my private e-mail address, and the URL to the ATS website. These were small and midsized venture capital sites, offering free evaluations. I made no representation whatsovever that I was anyway affiliated with ATS -- it was just a couple of seconds entering some data into some web forms.

Surprisingly, I have received MULTIPLE with e-mail responses from these companies, wanting to make appointments with me.

It is embarrassing to me -- I have diligently written them back saying it was just an experiment and that I am not an owner, just a lowly member. (Believe me -- I in NO WAY represented to these companies that I was anything other than just a web surfer.)

My point is as follows: ATS is obviously VERY HOT property. It generates a lot of excitement. It is poised for incredible growth. And I would say that those long term members of ATS (I don't count myself as one yet) are positioned to see their influence greatly expanded over the next several years as ATS becomes more and more popular.

These ATS member points may actually have some significant worth in the future, as unlikely as that use to seem to me. A high ranking at ATS might actually be something you could put on a resume, in the future.

Note to Springer and the 3 Amigos -- I would (quite pretentiously) recommend going LONG on the Above Network right now. And I promise not to repeat my experiment, sorry for that.

No worries Buck... Just tell them to use the "Contact Us" button on the homepage if a genuine human responds to you (I would imagine the emails you received were "auto responders" trying to get leads) and we'll scare 'em off toot sweet!
