Six Apart just got more money:

So somebody read that and asked me, "Uh, so why is Intel investing? Are you going to get two blogs if you have a Core Duo?"

So what's the motivation behind a company like Intel giving mad cash to 6A? Do they get a stake in the company? Is it some kind of flat "we promise to pay you back twice what you gave us once we make more money" kind of thing?

We said "pretty please" and they said, "awww shucks, why not?" and gave it to us with no conditions whatsoever. Just that we'd "spend it wisely".

Of course they get a stake.

Welcome back to Intel

I always knew you'd be back. Those summer internships were just too special :)

Yeah Brad, you're just like Bush, getting help from your daddy's friends all the time! Why don't you go start a war or something.

Now that we got so much money, we're having Haliburton build our data center. Need that $500-per-cable terrorist-proof cat-5, ya know?
