Thanks for the link - excellent article. This all reminds me of betting at the craps table - you could cover your bets many ways - so they offered a product and then covered their bet of that product losing money by shorting it as well. Gambling - eh?
This combined with the Technology Review article are great reading - reminds me of the great stories in the WSJ of how those dotcom companies would spend all of their newly found wealth on parties, jets and stuff unrelated to the 'business.' Yet another get rich quick scheme gone bad.
