Mon, 22 Jan 2018 14:35:06 +0000

ADP announced this morning that they have acquired our portfolio company WorkMarket. This is a bittersweet moment for me.

I saw the news today that HuffPo is shutting down their “contributor network.” we are ending the HuffPost contributor platform.

At that time, social networks […]

Light And Love

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 11:07:40 +0000

Today we celebrate the life and teachings of the great Martin Luther King Jr. He had a way with words and among my favorites is this quote, which seems very apropos right now: Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.
