Video Of The Week: Who Has The Right To Police The Internet?

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 11:37:31 +0000

This week our portfolio company Cloudflare made news when they made an exception to their long-standing policy of not terminating customers for hate speech and terminated The Daily Stormer. In this interview with Bloomberg, Cloudflare’s CEO Matthew Prince explains why he made that decision and why it bothers him so much that he and other […]



Touchy Subjects

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 11:22:09 +0000

I got feedback from some in the AVC community that the comments on Wednesday’s post were “ugly.” As many readers know, we have a comment policy at the top of the comment thread and I’ve worked to make sure people know that we try to keep our discussions civil. Whenever there is a touchy subject, […]



Transit

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 11:22:14 +0000

As Co-Chairman of Tech:NYC, I get asked frequently to name the issues that matter most to the tech companies of NYC. On my list, often at the top, is transit. Getting to and from work matters a lot to the employees of the growing number of tech companies in NYC. And this summer has been […]

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 09:48:47 +0000

I don’t know enough to say with any confidence that our President is a supremacist. But he made a cold hard political calculation that paid off for him when he made these horrible people the foundation of his political base and fired them and their hatred up at his campaign rallies. He can’t throw them […]

MBA Mondays

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 17:33:28 +0000

For almost four years, from Jan 2010 to late 2013, I would write a column every Monday called MBA Mondays where I tried to cover the basics of a business education here at AVC. There are roughly 200 posts in total that I wrote during the time this weekly series was active. Since many regular […]



Founder Friendly

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 10:31:20 +0000

Long time VC watcher, writer, and analyst Dan Primack suggested on Friday that the days of VCs trying to out “founder friendly” each other are now over. It is an interesting observation and was worthy of a reply. The VC industry is highly competitive for the best opportunities and we certainly do try to ingratiate […]

Internet treasures don’t die so easily and @SoundCloud is one of the most treasured parts of the Internet https://t.co/ciYyMwbVu1 — Fred Wilson (@fredwilson) August 11, 2017 I have spent much of the last four months working on this and was up most of the night last night finishing it, so I don’t have a lot of […]
