Steve Loethen When I grow up I want to code in c#

Interesting article in the Wall Street Journal.  Seems the web has created a new form of fan base.  I am calling this MicroOwners.  In the past, if you wanted to own a piece of a sports team, it was on a fantasy web site.  Fake teams to allow us to dream.  But now, for a small amount of money ($70.50) you can own a piece of a minor league soccer team.

26,000 owners.

Can this trend continue?  Think of Micro Venture Capitol.  I want to start a company.  I develop a business plan and then make my pitch to the VC guys.  But now,  the VC guys are not suits or millionaires, they are average Joe's with a bit to invest.  Wonder what the model would do.
