During an economic downturn, Scale Venture Partners' Sharon Wienbar explains to Sarah Lacy in this excerpt from a Yahoo Tech Ticker interview, "the strong get stronger, the weak get weaker, the strong buy the weak." Which means that while founding developers are off waiting for their $300 economic stimulus check and trying figuring out a way to make $.92 CPMs on ads on their Facebook apps, life is totally awesome right now for venture capitalists. Another VC, Pascal Levensohn, agrees: "The risk premium is coming back. This is a great time. It imposes discipline on entrepreneurs." In case you needed a translation, "discipline" is VCspeak for "getting ripped off."
