re: Kirana Networks Inc.
No way these guys get funding. The founder / CEO is a pathological lier; the VP Software has never completed a product; the founding VP Hardware was demoted because he couldn't deliver; the market dissapeared, and most importantly - their biggest champion - Rob Soni,of Bessemer Ventures - was fired!!! Whereas they will not go under right away due to Fatish's uncanny ability to stectch a penny, the future is dark indeed.

Well... given that their URL is for sale and/or under re-construction (http://www.kirananetworks.com), I figure they are probably toast... Anyone know?

I figure they're toast too. Jeez, where do these guys come from? Maybe BoobyMax is right.

Pathological lier! Yes. That is what we call people with entrepreurial ability - a rare gift, who take inordinate risks to bring something new into being, who inpire and serve as a beacon to young people. It is hard to fail, if this can be called a failure... but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.
