You forget, all those VCs read the Moore books. It's like a major

Once upon a time there was this poor bastard who was
Living on the Faultline (Moore/McKenna) consumed with his Innovator's
Dilemma (Christensen). One day he had a groundbreaking idea that set the
whole thing off. Waking up from his dream, he found that his goals
were quite distant across the newly opened ground.

First he had to go about Crossing the Chasm (Moore), but
luckily his Companion (Wiefels, Moore) was with him and they came
up with a High Output Management (Grove) plan. First they had to
knock a couple of bowling pins down to shorten the distance. Then
they started running in circles like chicken's with their heads cut off.
This caused a lot of commotion and they were getting the hang of
Managing in Turbulent Times (Drucker) and they finally go sucked up into
a big whirlwind across. While Inside the Tornado (Moore),
they spied an obstacle with walnut shells. When they came
back to ground after their High Tech Product Launch (Kitcho), they
found that there was a gorilla. The Gorilla spoke and said,
    "He who would cross the chasm much answer me these questions
     three, ere the other side he see."

The first poor bastard considered this Gorilla Game (Moore) and figured
he was Net Ready (Hartman) as any animal to begin Leading the
Revolution (Hamel). Unfortunately he lacked the Intellectual Capital (Stewart)
to pull it off and he was Blow to Bits (Wurster). The other poor bastard, having
read his Cluetrain Manifesto (Locke), knew When Genius Failed (Lowenstein),
the best thing to do when you have a losing hand is to dance
around like a Nudist on the Late Shift (Bronson)[1] in a High Stakes, No
Prisoner's (Ferguson) game of Liar's Poker (Lewis).

If that doesn't sound like the P2P Industry, I don't know what does.
