Why Goliath Should Be One Season Only

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 14:16:28 +0000

Amy and I watched the Amazon series Goliath last month. It was deeply awesome. Deeply deeply awesome. We also watched The Night Manager which we loved almost as much. And, at the end of each, I said to Amy, “They should end this now and not do a Season 2.” Goliath captured my attention more.It had amazing...

Joining the Kauffman Fellows Board

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 13:56:47 +0000

In September, I joined the board of Kauffman Fellows. If you aren’t familiar with the Kauffman Fellows Program, it recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. I was around at the beginning, spending a day a month in Kansas City with the Kauffman Foundation as an entrepreneur-in-residence when the program was originally created by a team at...

Alexa, What’s Your Favorite Accelerator?

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 17:21:48 +0000

I love Alexa. Of all the various tech things I’ve bought in 2016, Amazon’s Alexa has become the most consistently used new thing in my world. I’ve even had a breakthrough on the home front as Amy now regularly says “Alexa, play …” We’ve got them everywhere and the Echo Dot that showed up in October is...

@bfeld v51.0

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 18:49:46 +0000

I turned 51 today. I’ve been telling people I’m 33 (since that’s my age in hex) and when I feel like having people say “whoa – you look a lot younger than that” I say I’m 63 (since that’s my age in octal). I like to look forward on my birthday instead of backwards, so...

An Interview with Notation Capital about Starting VC Funds

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 18:30:47 +0000

Last month I had dinner at Pizzeria Locale in Boulder and did a long interview with Nick Chirls and Alex Lines of Notation Capital for their podcast. Dinner was about them and as they learned, if you trek out to Boulder, dinner is on me. Their podcast series is called Origins and is unique among podcasts...

#GivingTuesday: Donate to Path Forward

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 20:06:07 +0000

When I woke up this morning, I wondered which non-profit that I should highlight today on #GivingTuesday. After reading Sallie Krawcheck’s article in Fortune titled A Letter to My Daughter, Post-Trump, I immediately decided the organization of the day is Path Forward. Fundraising Websites – Crowdrise Path Forward began as a program at Return Path, a...

Book: Devil in the Grove: Thurgood Marshall, the Groveland Boys, and the Dawn of a New America

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 02:47:17 +0000

Wow. My weekend reading was Devil in the Grove: Thurgood Marshall, the Groveland Boys, and the Dawn of a New America. I can’t remember who recommended it to me but it was on my Kindle and my random next-book-to-read selection process brought it up. When I finished it a few minutes ago, I only had one...

John Lilly On The Role of Simplicity and Messaging

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 17:56:53 +0000

Yesterday I talked briefly about taking a break from media. However, I wasn’t precise, as the one thing I read each week is the New York Times Sunday paper. When Amy and I lived in Boston we started reading it every Sunday morning and continued whenever we travelled. Several years ago I started having it delivered...

Book: Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice

Sat, 26 Nov 2016 22:00:59 +0000

After the election, I took a break from social media. Prior to this election cycle I rarely read online news and almost never watched news on TV, so that was easy to stop as well. I needed some emotional distance from the election and decided I wanted some intellectual distance as well. So, I went...

Today’s #GivingThanks is to David Cohen, one of the founders and co-CEO of Techstars. If David has done something that has touched your life is a positive way and you want to give thanks to him, make a donation online to the Techstars Foundation. I met David on one of my random days in 2006....
