    There is a serious critique of Citizenre out there that everyone needs to read:

    I think many of these alternative energy start-ups are going to end up being just exactly like dot-coms. Entire purpose is to rip-off venture capitalists, deliver nothing of value to the customer, and abscond with the harvested VC cash to an island somewhere.

    Let the buyer beware. You don't get something for nothing... ever!

    The green tech boom in Silicon Valley is beginning to resemble the dot-com bubble, but remember that quite a few companies like Yahoo started up in that expansion. There are some even more pie-in-the-sky schemes out there though. This one sounds even a bit tame.

    money is being invested in hopes of legislative change. people want to be ahead of the curve.

    and legislative change should be very likely after 2008.

    but then, in october 2008 the bushies will pay osama to plant a dirty bomb in NYC and give them an excuse to cancel elections. goodbye green tech boom.
