"The IBM's, CISCO's, and big fund investors/rich people probably don't see these guys as a good investment opportunity due to the inherent "risk" associated with Venture exchange listings."

bitwit, I don't understand this comment. The IBMs and Ciscos don't look to invest in a company's stock, which is what the Venture Exchange represents. They first and foremost invest in the technology and whether it is viable or not. The stock is a bi-product of the quality, or lack thereof, of one's product or service and therefore less relevant.
