"And I did not chip in ten grand to seed a first investment round to build value for a Facebook acquisition."
Yes, you did. Everyone did. And Oculus probably won't be the last time backers struggle with this idea.
On some level, I get it. It doesn't feel fair. You were on the ground floor, and a bunch of other people get the big money.
Patrick this part sounds like you are saying Notch is sad because he didn't get any of the money. That doesn't make any sense though because he is already a gazillionaire as you stated. I haven't even seen anyone say they backed it and feel entitled to some money and I don't think that is part of this backlash at all.
