Feature Friday: Muting People On Twitter

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 13:49:02 +0000

I think Mute is one of the most underused features on Twitter, second only to Unfollow. I went on a bit of a rant about this on Twitter last week. @johnolilly try unfollowing or muting the people who are filling your feed with noise. It’s amazing what it feels like to be rid of them […]



Urgency

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 13:49:52 +0000

One of the things I often press for in my role as a board member and investor is a greater “sense of urgency” in our portfolio companies. The founders and CEOs, it turns out, are hungry for that even more than I am. It is a collective frustration. So when I hear a suggestion on […]



Ticket Bots

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 13:04:21 +0000

New York State put a law on its books this week making operating “ticket bots” illegal: using ticket bots, maintaining an interest in or control of bots, and reselling tickets knowingly obtained with bots constitutes a class A misdemeanor. As such, violators could face substantial fines and imprisonment As someone who has often lost out […]



Keep It Simple

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 12:31:42 +0000

I like this advice from John Lilly, a serial CEO and now a partner at Greylock: I didn’t understand the role of simplicity and messaging early on. One of the things that happened at one of my start-ups was that I would get bored saying the same thing every day. So I decided to change […]



Videos For The Hour Of Code

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 11:06:28 +0000

The Hour Of Code has become a big deal in K-12 schools around the US and around the world. It happens this year during the week of Dec 5th to Dec 11th, which is Computer Science Education Week. Schools find an hour during that week and offer students the ability to do coding exercises for […]



Google Pixel XL

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 15:46:28 +0000

When Google announced their Pixel smartphone a few months ago, I bailed on my plans to move from the Nexus 6P to the iPhone 7 and instead ordered the Pixel XL. This marks the end of several years of going back and forth between Android and iOS. I may start doing that again. Or I […]



Video Of The Week: A Crypto Economy

Sat, 26 Nov 2016 14:08:21 +0000

AVC community member William Mougayar traveled to Amsterdam a couple weeks ago, along with some USV folks, to attend SteemFest. He delivered this talk in which he sketches out a vision of an economy powered by blockchain technology. It’s a fairly concise but expansive vision of what is possible to build with open public blockchains.

It’s Black Friday, the official start of the holiday shopping season. Here at AVC, we recommend shopping where you can find unique items that allow you to express your individuality. Etsy.com, of course.

The Creative Independent

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 12:18:46 +0000

In a world full of click bait media and fake news, it is harder than ever to find authentic and meaningful content on the Internet. The utopian early days of blogging in the early 2000s, when this blog was started, seem long gone. But the Internet is a vast place and there is quality content […]
