Twitter chairman and cofounder Jack Dorsey has a new startup called the Square iPhone Payment System, to be located at

The business will be selling consumers on an attachment for their iPhones they can use to pay for stuff instead of using their credit cards.

VCs are completely nuts for it. (Probably Twitter’s $1 billion valuation didn’t hurt).
