Mike Maples, the founder of Floodgate, talks about how this year "scares the heck" out of him, mainly because money is flooding into the startup community. That's good news for everyone, if there's an exit environment. Unfortunately, there isn't one, according to Mike.

In the third segment of my interview with Mike, he also talks about how he spots markets.
