To Moonlight or To Quit? - Starting up in a downturn

Today, Business Week points out that some of the best startups came from economic downturns.

Meanwhile, investors often look for entrepreneurs with "skin in the game" -- which often means having quit your job to work full time on your dream.

Last night, I got in an interesting discussion with Evan Bartlett (@evbart) as to whether or not quitting one's job is actually a sign of a great entrepreneur -- especially in economic times like these.

So, in today's video (see above), I ask: Should entrepreneurs who are currently employed stay in their jobs as they try and startup their company, or should they quit and work full time?
