You already know the dirty truth: Oprah is wrong. What you need to succeed is money, talent, and a small army of overeducated lawyers. To discover how these forces can help you rule the universe, make your way over to the VC Taskforce's "Secrets For Setting Your Business Up for Success" from 6-9 p.m at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman. Oh, and bring a sleeping bag. Tuesday morning from 8-10 a.m. the SD Forum will also be Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman discussing VCs' manifest destiny to invest in India and China at the "Quarterly Venture Breakfast." If you'd rather talk in code tonight, the Java Meetup will be learning about the OSGi Service Platform at Marakana at 6:30 p.m. The MySQL Meeptup is also going to be test driving Entrance, which lets you datamine SQL analytics from your desktop, at Current Tv from 6-8 p.m. (Photo by emdot)
