Funded Founder Founded

2:40 PM -- In case you missed it this morning: TheFunded.com founder "Ted" outed himself to Wired in a story published last night. He's Adeo Ressi.

This is the site that lets people anonymously bitch about bad experiences with VCs. They also namecheck the good VCs and lavish them with praise -- so it's not just a hatefest, but enough VCs took exception to the site to declare war, as the gossip tabloids phrase it.

Question: Is TheFunded.com more or less useful than Fake Steve Jobs? Think hard. Sharing info on VCs sounds useful, but, like any message-driven site, it can become a nest of ego rants. Skewering Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) could be construed a public service.

By the way, the whole "anonymous shadowy Website proprietor" thing? Tired.
