all of that is for me ... and am currently doing .. though much
less on database stuff ( but db is needed on the next big project 
for yet another "registrar" system )

	- hw-wise, i'm looking for gigE state machine expert to build 
	a 24-32 port gigE kvm switch ( easy to design but hard/expensive to build )

add sales/marketing/pr to the list of "interests" or required talents
if things are going to work and is sustainable ideas

my rule of thumb... seriously interested people will be "doing it" 
and as one idea fades, there will be other new/better ideas will come
rolling around
( gotta keep moving with the tidal wave of new ideas )

easy to find "good sysadmin"... and "good network" etc,etc

very hard to find "experts" that will work on startup ideas

i've been doing this for 10-20yr depending on how one counts 
and will keep doing "startups" and/or aka consulting in my small world

i drag folks in "here" irregularly, yelling and screaming, when i need
some help to meet some customer deadlines .. time is 95% of the problem
and not the talent issues ...

more importantly... cut pieces of the pie before there is single
dollar in the pie
