I went to the Bellevue Entrepreneur’s meetup tonight and met some interesting people. Some of them had legitimate businesses and some were what I dub “human spam”. One woman was selling diet pills that allow you “to lose weight with no exercise or changes in what you eat!”. Another man was involved in a multi-level marketing scheme selling holiday cards. I get a sinking feeling in my gut when I talk to such people, so I left soon after. Human spam is somehow much worse than internet spam; I can giggle at internet spam, but seeing wasted human life is tragic.
