I Voted and I’m With Her

Tue, 08 Nov 2016 02:08:27 +0000

I just turned my ballot in this morning, and #I’mWithHer. I voted for Hillary Clinton. While I have misgivings about the political family dynasty dynamics at work here, she’s one of the most qualified presidential candidates in our country’s history, and is well-prepared to ably serve our country as President. Today I voted with my...

Boulder: VOTE NO on Props 300 and 301!

Fri, 16 Oct 2015 15:24:14 +0000

I seldom feel compelled to weigh in on politics, whether local or national, but there are two terrible pieces of public policy up for vote in Boulder next month in November that I must urge my fellow Boulderites to vote against. Props 300 and 301 are “wolves in sheeps’ clothing” initiatives that sound innocuous (and...

Excite: Are You Experienced?

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 18:47:56 +0000

I attended at fantastic event in Palo Alto a few weeks ago: Excite’s reunion, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the launch of Excite.com. (Fun inverse exponential tidbit: at launch, Excite’s index contained a whopping 1.5 million pages.) It was great to reconnect with the incredible set of folks I was fortunate to be on a...

Pitch Your Company, Don’t Present About Your Company’s Pitch

Thu, 29 Jan 2015 00:39:10 +0000

At Foundry Group, we often have our portfolio companies come in to present to the four of us to work out the kinks in their pitch prior to heading out on the road to raise money. It can be very powerful to have the four of us in the room at the same time offering...

Decappuccino – Crowdsourcing a Comic

Fri, 09 Jan 2015 21:11:16 +0000

Decappuccino Version 1, by Andrew Thomas. Decappuccino Version 2, by Mustafa Kandaz.   Last month, in the weeks before Christmas, my son Quinn coined a term for a new kind of espresso drink while I was making my morning brew – the decappuccino. We chuckled about it, and imagined what the (potentially deadly) effects might...

Internet History Podcast (Excite)

Fri, 09 Jan 2015 20:16:44 +0000

Last month I did an interview for the Internet History Podcast, where I tell the story of my experiences as a co-founder of Excite.com, starting way back in 1993, ancient history in internet time. There’s a ton of great interviews on this site, so if you’re interested in history of the internet, I highly recommend...

My partners and I released our second Foundry Group music video earlier this week.  My partner Jason wrote the music and directed the video, and he I and spent an afternoon poolside at a Holiday Inn Express (that’s how we roll) in North County San Diego (relaxing prior to dinner at the amazing Stone Brewing...

Coming Soon…

Fri, 27 Sep 2013 14:31:07 +0000

Just over two years ago, my partners and I released a somewhat preposterous music video.  We had so much fun with that, so we decided to do it again.  We’re not quite done with the final editing, so the full video is not quite ready, but we thought we’d put out a trailer / teaser....

Startup Iceland Panel Discussion

Thu, 18 Jul 2013 06:31:06 +0000

My Foundry Group partner Jason Mendelson and I attended second annual Startup Iceland conference in June, expertly run by Bala Kamallakharan.  We had a great time meeting members of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Reykjavik and touring the other-wordly countryside.  Jason and I even got to meet the President of Iceland, who spoke at the opening...

Ctrl+Alt+Compete Documentary

Sat, 03 Mar 2012 00:29:17 +0000

Last year while I was at SXSW, I stopped in to do an interview for a documentary film project called Ctrl+Alt+Compete, produced by Ten100 in partnership with Microsoft Corporation. Some background info and a clip of my interview has been posted on the Ctrl+Alt+Compete website. There’s some great interviews up on the site, which I...
