I agree that the advent of social media is opening multiple doors that historically have not been available much less knock-able. I especially like the part about Fred Wilson (early stage VC/blogger)not wanting phone calls etc., but yet desiring links to their web presence. How easy is that and quite honestly if the site has potential the VC/Angel Funders will contact the right people at the site. If a VC/Angel Funder contacts me about my site then I know I have their interest!

Just from experience, I know that the investors are out there...it's just a matter of presenting yourself properly. Moreover, a professional website can present your business much better than a voicemail or a meeting at your "make-shift" home office.
