What's the buzz? Tell me what's a-happening.

To understand why buzz is important to the bootstrapper sometimes it helps to compare and contrast the buzz factor of the little start-up with that of the well established firm having money to burn but little or no passion for the product among its employees.
The example I most often give is from my early days at a mid-sized northeastern Pennsylvania newspaper.
As head of a recently established bureau office in a highly competitive fringe market, I was driving past a local volunteer fire company when I noticed vending machine for two of our competitors out front but a conspicuous absence of our own paper in that part of town.
Returning to my office, I immediately phoned our circulation manager to ask how soon he could drop a box in the spot.
"They'd only steal it," a disheartened voice replied.
What advantage do small bootstrap entrepreneurs have over huge established companies?
Passion for their product and a hunger to attack every opportunity.
Without these qualities, a business will never succeed, no matter how well funded.
