  Farhad lets loose

For those who don't follow the comparison shopping space, Brian Smith's Comparison Engines is a great blog to start with. He points to this online chat/inteview of ShopZilla founder Farhad Mohit.

It's good stuff for entrepreneurs, but the snarky side of me likes how Farhad gets in a thinly veiled shot at eBay and Shopping.com when he talks about being acquired by Scripps.

initially we thought they'd be the stalking horse... and a big-name internet company who was pursuing us was the natural acquirer... But, as we got into it... Scripps really knew very little about the space and therefore was truly "betting" on us... while the other company thought they knew exactly how to run out silly little division and that we'd just better take the money and shut the hell up...

that wasn't a very useful tack to pursue with us and so we let 'em destroy our competition... :) (by buying them)
