Re: Another VC Blogger – Kim Davis King

yeah, but blogging the fundraising process is a no-no. frontrunning, hyping issues galore.

That movie is one of the best ever. It's up there with the Marx Brothers as far as I am concerned. Josh watched it last year (without us knowing it) and has been begging me to see it again.

you have to have thick skin to blog

emails and comments like that are tough to take

but posting the email and your response is very cathartic and its worked well for me too over the years

good luck tomorrow

Re: Lack of Critical Thinking

Sat, 19 Aug 2006 10:11:20 -0000

it's time to add some new feeds to your feed reader.

we all spend too much time reading about the tech/startup/vc world and there's way too much groupthink in that space driven by the twin tech's (techmeme and techcrunch).

check out gary becker and richard posner who give the blog world serious critical thinking every week

Re: VCs and Non-Disclosure Agreements

one way to think about this is the age old adage that contracts can never protect you as well as good judgement. if you share your plan with an unethical person who does sign an NDA, you'll be at greater risk than an ethical person who won't sign an NDA.

Re: Feed-based Architecture? Um.

Hooman,

I think you are reading too much into my post last night and too little into my previous one.

Sure I'd like to see FeedBurner extend their value proposition into widgets and I think they will. But I don't think that people should simply "give up" if they do.

I do think that RSS and the other feed oriented architectures provide the best publishing system for widgets. I am simply saying that I want a 'write once, publish everywhere" solution and I think widgets that are powered by feeds will do that best.

Fred

i think it's much ado about nothing. slow news on friday evenings makes for these kind of things.

here's my take

testing out the new comment system




Re: Trying Out A New Comment System

Wed, 08 Aug 2007 05:49:50 -0000

52 comments in the past 7 hours! I guess the way to get a lot of comments is to try a new comments system.




Re: Release Early and Often

Wed, 08 Aug 2007 06:58:46 -0000

funny coincidence

a YC startup called Disqus asked me if they could use my bog to demo their new comment system at tomorrow's YC day in Boston which I'll be attending.

I said yes and put it on my blog last night.

had no idea that there was an almost identical company coming out of Techstars.

Just shows once again that different people come to the same ideas in different places at the same time.

yes, i did that. after i tried about a dozen other id/pw combos. thanks for the suggestion though. i'll take any and all of them.




Re: OSX Help Please

Fri, 17 Aug 2007 10:37:16 -0000

maybe the problem is my install disk is an older version of osx than is now running




Re: OSX Help Please

Fri, 17 Aug 2007 10:45:55 -0000

been racking my brain for that. it's a machine we don't use much except the summer months so my mind is hazy

Fri, 17 Aug 2007 10:46:36 -0000

rich, i updated the post with a picture of the reset password screen i am seeing. strangely, it doesn't show a sys admin (root) user either.




Re: OSX Help Please

Fri, 17 Aug 2007 10:48:34 -0000

Re: OSX Help Please

Fri, 17 Aug 2007 11:57:38 -0000
