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.

Calacanis is right: startups can't afford slackers  —  Jason Calacanis has started a big argument where Duncan Riley over at TechCrunch has stood up for slackers everywhere (he couches it in language of “pro family” in the family/life balance).  The thing is, Duncan might talk to his boss, Mike Arrington.

Henry Blodget / Silicon Alley Insider:
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.

February Top Social Networks - Make way for the new guys  —  Earlier this week, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerburg made Forbes list of the World's Richest Men.  Facebook certainly had more ups than downs in 2007, but can the site continue its rapid growth into 2008?  Where's MySpace and what else is going in the social web?
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 …
