That didn’t keep me from sending the link directly to a couple of people who I thought would get a kick out of it (and wouldn’t necessarily see those blog entries). This list included my father – Randy Levine – who is the founder, initial CEO and now a director of a venture-backed start-up. Dad and I regularly trade stories about the relationships between VCs and their investors – comparing notes on our experiences from different sides of the table. Dad and I had the following exchange about this story which I found extremely amusing and worth sharing: seth: dad – I think you’ll find this amusing [link to story]dad: Everybody’s situation is different, but he captures a lot of common experience. seth: I thought it was pretty funny dad: That’s the difference between dealing with VCs and being a VC. seth: which is to say that you didn’t find it amusing ? just scary . . . ? dad: I guess it depends on which end of the cavity search you’re on . . . So I guess one’s amusement at the post varies based on where you sit; which in itself is pretty amusing . . .
