A Clever Short Story About Discrimination

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 12:23:45 +0000

On May 23rd, I got an email from one of my favorite sci-fi writers (and close friend) Eliot Peper. It was titled “My very first scifi short story” and said: “David Cohen shared the idea that inspired this story. I drafted it last week. Thought you might enjoy and would love to hear what you...

Happy 24th Anniversary Amy

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 15:49:10 +0000

Happy Anniversary Amy. We’ve been together for 27 years and we’ve been married for 24 of them. It amazes me that you put up with me. I look forward to spending as many years together as we get on this planet. And, if we are lucky, some technology will get created before we vanish that...

Join My Chorus Marathon Team

I’m going to run my next marathon in October. I haven’t chosen it yet, but I’m getting close to deciding which one I want to do. And – I’m looking for some help on my training. Early this year, we invested in Dick Costolo’s new company, Chorus. Some of you know Dick from Twitter, where...

My parents have been married for 54 years today. That’s 19,710 days. Mom / Dad – happy anniversary! Your relationship is an inspiration to me.

Verizon – I Can’t Hear You Now

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 14:13:46 +0000

My cell phone experience is so fucking miserable. As I drove home last night and tried to have a conversation, I had five drops during a 30-minute drive from downtown Boulder to my house on the edge of Boulder and Longmont. When I drive into my office this morning, on exactly the same route, I...

Does VC Fund Differentiation Matter?

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 13:18:30 +0000

I’ve met and emailed with many pre-seed and seed GPs in the past year. Over sushi last night with two of them, who are also long-time friends, one of them asked me “Brad, how do you think we are differentiated?” This generated a rant from me that went something like this. There are over 500...

Global EIR and Silicon Valley Bank Funding Match

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 15:26:40 +0000

Today Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) announced their support for Global EIR, a cause for which I care deeply. As you may know, over breakfast in 2015 Jeff Bussgang and I launched Global EIR with the hope of advancing the startup visa effort on a local and state level after it stalled in Congress. Since then,...

Go For Culture Add, Not Culture Fit

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 12:24:46 +0000

I’ve come to despise the phrase “culture fit.” I don’t remember when I first heard it, but it was many years ago. Over time, it became woven into the world of entrepreneurship, as companies used it as a primary frame of reference for hiring. VCs turned it into a cliche, espousing the importance of culture fit during the...

I’m Proud of Our Community

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 14:47:42 +0000

I woke up this morning to see the following on our Human Utility monthly match Crowdrise campaign. It blew me away. I’m proud of our community. Y’all are awesome. THANK YOU. I then poked around to see how we got there and saw Fred Wilson’s blog post on the wrap up of the #GiveWater campaign....
