A few weeks back, we IMterviewed Weblogs Inc. founder and Sequoia entrepreneur Jason Calacanis egarding his newest projects. When his planned venture was likened to taking on Henry Copeland at Blogads, Calacanis replied, "That's like Michael Jordan going after a 12-year old in a game of 1-on-1." (Which Jordan would totally do; he's notoriously cruel.) Copeland didn't take kindly to being likened to a 12-year-old, though.
In response to the broadside, Copeland posted a laundry list of reasons why Blogads is better than Weblogs ever was. In closing, he comes up with 10-1 odds for Jordan vs. The Kid, and wagers $10,000 of his money versus $100,000 from Calacanis that Blogads' "2006 totals for net blogger earnings" were better than Weblogs'. 1,000 to 1 odds that Calacanis will respond at all; 100,000 to 1 that he takes the bet, considering that he no longer need even get out of bed for anything as paltry as Copeland's $10,000.
