The problem with the investment community today is that it places almost no value on technology.

This is an interesting statement. When you're an Internet company, it doesn't really matter (at first glance anyway) what your technology is, as long as you can keep your site running well. The tech is an infrastructure that everyone sort of assumes will be there, and from there it's all market positioning and branding.
