More Wormholes by the Day

Since my post on the Wormhole Factory, Netli has continued to grow unabated... Motorola, T.I., Samsung, Boeing, Ingram, SAP and Nokia are just some of the companies who have recently hyper-jumped onto Netli's warp speed internet. In fact one of them reported to us this week that Netli's elimination of application latency has increased their site usage by 200%!

    RE:"Eary stage VC's must make investments decisions with very little information. No wonder that barely half our investments turn a profit.

    Here's a question I have often asked aspiring VC's to see if they persist in the face of seemingly incomplete information..."

    I am fascinated by the use of the "'s" after VC--from one stickler for correct grammar and usage to another (I enjoyed reading your entry on this subject), perhaps you can explain this widespread practice of using the possessive form for the plural and vice versa.

  2. You may be technically right but it is certainly easier to follow the text when one applies an apostrophe to the plural version of an abbreviation. If you want to take an extreme position, you can even insist that abbreviations must use periods to separate the letters, as in V.C. instead of VC. And then what would the plural be--"V.C.s"? I think this is one of those cases where simplicity and clarity rule.
