    Needed better moderation. Discussion generally strayed too frequently and too far off the topic of "Top 10 mistakes Entrepreneurs Should Avoid When Launching a Startup" into a bunch term sheet minutia. Not surprising, given two VC types, a VC lawyer, and a VC-backed entrepreneur on the panel, so there probably needs to be more alignment and preparation between the VLAB organizers and the moderator to keep this from happening. Drew Houston of Dropbox stood out in terms of salient insights and generally keeping things on track. For example, he put things into perspective by likening term sheets to doing one's taxes.

    One of the panelists was dropping way too many F-bombs, which breaks the ice at first but then quickly becomes unprofessional.
