  1. Sure !
    Please ask him if he will (or not) publish a book, with all the funny things he gets from other investors or entrepreneurs… Something like “The Funniest of Fund Raising” 🙂

  2. Here’s one: As someone who has been involved in content delivery for a while now, both Truemors and Alltops, what are your views on the problems of content relevance? Is lowext common denominator relevance all their is or will we always have to trek to different sites for different interest areas? Your thoughts…

    Also tell hime to publish the funny book… 🙂

  3. Hi Tom,

    Here’s a question for Guy:

    As social media platforms continue to expand into more and more verticals, does Guy believe that there will eventually be some sort of consolidation? Or are we going to keep breaking off into smaller and smaller pieces? What’s his view of web 3.0 and the whole mobile search hype?

    Well those are a few questions, I have plenty more 🙂 Please let me know if you decide to ask one of my questions, if you want more just let me know.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  4. Tom,

    Would be interested to hear Guy’s opinion on “build, buy or leverage” – i.e. is it better to build your product totally from scratch, even if it is re-inventing the wheel and takes longer, versus using existing technology or platforms to get a product to market quicker and leverage the fact that you can then concentrate on your product, service, market and customers etc. There are many open (and free) API’s available on the web now, that people can build a business on top of. How does that compare to having your own proprietary solution and the IP that goes along with that?

    Thanks for the opportunity…the funny book idea is good too!

  5. Hi, could you ask him where the smart money is being invested at the moment as regards new web startups – i.e – social sites are massive, but perhaps getting saturated and not always easy to monetise – whats the next big thing being invested in?
    Obviously not looking for any trade secrets, but am more interested in whats going to be the next buzz?

  6. Hey,
    I meant to get in contact with Guy myself but I guess this guy is really busy. Can you ask him this:

    He’s about the first person who’s incorporated Twitter in a media product. What’s his philosophy.

    What does he think of this Twitter/journalism ‘recipe’:

    -Get a Google newsfeed
    -Create a Twitter search system that ranks users commenting on top news stories
    -Create a fully automated @ reply to the Twitter users commenting, inviting them to submit relevant tweets documenting first hand/live what’s going on on the ground
    – create a site for people to submit their tweets next to a news story
    -Get media to buy this.

    Thanks!

  7. Hi Tom,

    I hope Im not too late. 🙂

    Could you ask Guy where does he see the direction of sites like Alltop going and can we expect to see even more specialised categories emerging to suit specific needs?
    Alltop is quite generic does he plan on specialising it further and what about personalising it for individuals?

  8. Ina,

    unfortunately, for some reason your comment was put into my Akismet queue and so I didn’t see it in time.

    Guy did, however touch on several of the things you asked about during the interview.
