I started a business with $5k that went on to make me a few million. Now it is true that we had an actual product to sell but most of what I did was scripting to automate tasks that were previously done by trained monkeys, so sorta software.

It's funny just how wrong you are without even realizing it. Maybe that's just your job. Sad.

...why are we singling her out?  The only difference between her and most of the grifters in Silicon Valley is that she got caught in her lie before she made off with all the money.

I'm just sayin' that she's not the only one.  And while she goes to club fed, dozens more like her (mostly male) will be running the same sorts of grifts and succeeding.

Musk made a career of sticking his name on other people's success.

The Theranos version of the Tesla would have been to promise a car that can go 1000 miles on a 5 minute charge that costs $20,000, available within 12 months. That's the level of deception she foisted off on investors - anyone with any degree of medical test design experience knew her claims were physically, chemically impossible from the first claims. And she knew too, from the reports of her scientists.

I can't come up with any parallels of fraud of this magnitude, depth, and breadth. This isn't just "HomeGrocer.com" over-optimism and hype, where at least the business model could have theoretically worked; or vulture capital which operates unethically but legally.

Giving an example is not singling her out as if she's the only one. God some people are dumbasses.
