Startups Must Hire The Right People And Watch Every Penny.  Or Fail.  —  Yesterday Jason Calacanis, the founder of Mahalo (and, full disclosure, our partner at TechCrunch40), wrote a blog post titled “How to save money running a startup.”  Boy was he attacked.  Bloggers lined up to take their shots at him.

Google Below $350???  Easy  —  Barrons' Jacqueline Doherty provides a refreshing macro view of the Google (GOOG) story, arguing that the stock will likely plunge below $350 in short order.  That's only about a 15% drop from where we are now, so it's not an earth-shattering prediction.
Steven Hodson / WinExtra:
When Social Just Means Another Way To Hype Yourself  —  Ever since becoming active on Twitter and FriendFeed I have noticed something that really makes me wonder if in the long run what Robert Cringely wrote the other day might in part be true.  In his post Robert equated …
