A blog about science, superstition, startups, security and singing.
Apparently, though, I'm just a nerd. Big news.
Blogged with Flock
Clearly they don't know you that well, or you have fooled me. You don't come across as a nerd at all.
pretty cool way to be called a nerd if you ask me
Congrats! I wldnt mind being called a nerd in the media.
dave ... did you just violate copyright by posting this article free on your website?
Wow, that reporter is pretty lost. Auren Hoffman laughs about VCs sneaking into a brunch? Hoffman is literally the biggest dork I know. And Jake Seid - the guy is 31 - wasn't the article about older VCs trying to connect with younger entrepreneurs?
I agree it didn't make much sense. I talked to Rebecca because I thought she was profiling the entrepeneurs, not the VCs. When she asked to send a photographer to my office, I declined (she took my web photo), and I discouraged her from running the story.
How serendipity, I just wrote a blog about something like this. Anyways, I applaud the efforts that VCs make to connect to the "younger" crowd...Although I would be kind of weirded out if a guy in his 40's or 50's just wanted to hang out with my friends and I to understand how we clicked.
Hi Dave: I'm interested to know who they get to do these sketches in the WSJ? When you have one done on page 1 of the Journal, do your friends and family put in a frame for your den/office?I enjoy your blog. I think you might be interested in a new posting I did on what Syd Finkelstein and I found were big predictors of VC-backed firms' sales growth. http://breakoutperformance.blogspot.com/2006/10/predictors-of-significant-vc-backed.html Best,Eric
