Here is a collection of excellent wisdom and advice from some of the best startup sages in web history. Also included are links to their blogs and twitter profiles.

When Gary Vaynerchuk met Robert Scoble recently I had an idea for a sequel to the popular movie “SIDEWAYS“. Imagine GaryVee and Scoble in the lead roles as two web-savvy guys whose mission is to turn the usually stuffy wine industry upside down! It would be semi-auto-biographical as Gary has done just that with his incredible “Thunder Show” on WineLibrary.TV. His “little” web show has made his business a massive success and now everyone is following him on Twitter and everywhere else online.

Here’s a mock poster for SIDEWAYS 2.0!
