Perkypants Alert. VC getting giddy, not gloomy

Venture Capital investor Paul Kedrosky at Infectious Greed is becoming dangerously perky, apparently refusing to believe the sky is falling in.

A confession: I’ve been offline most of the weekend and am only now catching up on the usual Sunday night chatter about how it’s the end of the world as we know it. Of course, there is lots of evidence that’s true — but for some reason I really don’t feel perturbed.

I have to stop taking so much time off: It makes me dangerously sanguine. Hell, I am even fighting a compulsion to invest in a banking startup I saw recently. Someone post some horrifying GDP data or something. Thanks.

Apparently he has not been drinking the Disaster Chic Koolaid. I think it’s those damn cleantech people, they just keep developing new amazing ways to create clean, renewable energy. Worse, they are relentlessly perky about it and arrogantly refuse to be Doomsters. Their virus of optimism could contaminate the End-of-the-World meme if immediate countermeasures are not taken.
