So many bad ideas out there

I've been looking at job sites for the last few days for early stage startup opportunities, and I can't help but feel disappointed. I've looked at probably 120 jobs that I'm qualified for, and applied to two.

Yes, two. In a world where applying for a job is two clicks and a JavaScript alert, I've applied to less than 2%.

There are so many bad ideas out there. I can't believe some of these (a) have funding, and (b) are attracting talent.

Then again, most great jobs come from social networks, not public job sites, so maybe the reason they're advertising is because they are having trouble with (b).

Maybe some of my ideas aren't so bad after all. Or maybe I need to go work as an associate at a VC company. I am pretty darn good at picking apart the flaws in business plans...
