Friend Keeper / Equity Calculator

This is an excel sheet posted to google spreadsheets
It is my proposed framework for handling equity distributions in startups
I don't know yet if it is consistent w/rules for all corporate structures - LLC, S-Type etc.

I created this to solve a few problems:
Not everybody's hourly input is of equal value
Not everybody works as many hours
People/friends realize that they can't work together, but this shouldn't preclude them from getting something for their efforts so that they can quit w/o getting screwed
"Shares" and "Options" are generally totally misunderstood and wildly over or under appreciated (either is bad) by those who are granted them
Determining who gets what upfront is basically impossible
"Owner/Founder" is kept in check using my suggested rules

My life is a parody of this parody:

COLUMBUS, OH-Larry Wisniewski, 36, turns to the Internet for information whenever humanly possible.

Thanks Donno

Palm and Google Collaborate on Maps for Treo Smartphones - Treo and PalmOS news

Thank You baby Jesus!
I have spent hours downloading java and futzing w/kmaps and another gmaps midlet hack.
This makes the 700P a no-brainer.

Blu Angels Bay Bridge

Cool, but becoming anachronistic
They should start showing off solar powered gliders or something
