Most Respected VCs? Really?

Mark Fidelman came up with a list of most respected Venture Capitalists based on sentiment analysis technology.

Kind of like a photo-sharing site, where those who rate an image have demonstrated to be in no correlation to those who buy the photograph. Transactional transparency is the only merit that counts Mark, and faking economic principles is the kiss of death to its underlying asset.

In an industry where VCs produce minus 4% IRRs and thus subprime Venture returns, the assessment of those who arbitrage innovation rated by those who chase it is economically irrelevant even though I would have put one or two of those people on my list.
