Syndicate NYC Thoughts

Here are a couple of high level thoughts on the Syndicate Conference held a few weeks ago in New York (ok – I’m weeks late getting this up, but the next Syndicate conference isn’t for another 6 months, so from that perspective I’m early!). First – Here’s the conference website Next – Here’s IDG’s marketing…

Its just technology – comments

Andy had a good comment to my “its just technology” post, which I’ve been meaning to pull up to the front page.  Here it is: I think this is a wider issue. I believe that most, if not all, early stage high tech companies suffer from the “what it is” versus “what it does” disease…

Syndicate – NYC

I’ll be at Syndicate NY next week.  They’re actually giving me a speaking role (scary, I know – something about the future of Syndication . . .).  Drop me a line of you’re going to be there too.

parlez-vous blog?

Dave Sifry from Technorati put up another in his ‘state of the blogosphere’ series. This one has some pretty interesting data on the language of the blogosphere. Being a narrow-minded American I naturally assumed that English was the dominant language of the blogosphere (it certainly was by far the dominant language of the early Internet). It’s not.

Back on the wagon

Wow. Has it really been a month since I posted? Lots of excuses about being busy and traveling a lot, but I’ve done that before and not stopped blogging. Not sure what happened – sorry about that (for those of you that noticed, that is). One interesting observation about my unplanned hiatus: When I’m actively…

Lifescience blogging

Despite being in pretty much separate areas of technology investing, I continue crossing paths with Adam Rubenstein in a way that reminds me how small the Denver/Boulder business community really is. Adam is involved in a number of local bio related initiatives – MycoLogics, High Country Ventures and the Fitzsimons BioBusiness Incubator to name a…


I’ve put up a back page on my blog where I can play around with new stuff — called etcetera. There’s a permanent link to it just below the ‘e-mail me’ on the top of the left nav bar. I’m just starting to put some things up (tag cloud, a swicki and my cloud)….

Tops of 2005

My friend Daniel (sorry no link – he’s not a blogger) pointed me to the BlogPulse 2005 Year in Review.  I particularly enjoyed the Top Wikipedia References (especially #5 – nice to see that Wikipedia made its own list). Enjoy.

A day

Yahoo buying makes total sense. I have to admit that around the time Union Square invested in the company I didn’t really get it – I hadn’t understood the power of a user generated hierarchy. A few months ago I got a clue about it – late to the party, but at least there….

The ultimate RSS reader

When I asked ealier this year how you view your news I didn’t exactly have this in mind, but now that I know it exists I can’t imagine any better way to stay informed. Yes – those are your RSS feeds being printed out on toliet paper.  See the engadget link here. Thanks to Ross…
