Nobody gives you free money – Back of the Envelope #004

The Hole, front

While I was in Houston for two weeks, Ed (@egoodwintx) and I met up in person, right downtown. With a bit of urban sound in the background, we discuss the recent highlights of technology earnings calls (things are looking up – we highlight Intel and Apple), the state of the IPO market for tech startups, and the deal with Facebook’s going public without going public.

In addition to clicking play above, you can download the episode directly or subscribe to the Back of the Envelope podcast feed (in iTunes or wherever) to have this episode automatically downloaded for your listening pleasure.

…also, we talk about the business of Houston. Since we were in person, I don’t have extensive show-notes, but there’s our lovely disclaimer:

Since Ed works in a highly regulated job as a portfolio manager, his lawyers require this exciting disclaimer, which you’ll get to hear my friend Charles Lowell read at the beginning of the episode:
