Yesterday at at Web 2.0 conference, my colleague Mary Kathleen Flynn over at The Deal’s TechConfidential caught up with Fred Wilson, Tim O’Reilly, the EQAL guys and others over at the show.  Fred has sobering comments about the impact of the financial meltdown on the funding of start-ups.  Although money is tougher to get, burnrates are much more reasonable, so start-ups should have longer live than when the last bust came.  We shall see.
