Some food for thought for the start of the week

Well I hope you all had a good weekend, mines was spent deep in the bowls of Yorkshire, left Sat morning for a 4hr drive through speed trap ally for a Sat night Silver wedding, then back up on the Sunday....it was a family doo!! it is amazing to catch up and find out more about your family at these events, I have contacts on the darkside that I never knew about so if I need something or someone "fixed", I will get the family discount, I also have a direct relation working with the Revenue and Customs. So the point I am trying to make is that you have a network even through you family, now if you have an Italian ancestery they you will know all about family, lol. I found these two posts when I was chilling on Sunday, working on the usual plan b search, and thought that they would make an interesting read.


Both found on the "ask the vc blog" run byBrad Feld and Jason Mendelson, they are the co-authors of AsktheVC. Brad and Jason have been working together since 2000 when Jason joined Mobius Venture Capital, a venture capital firm that Brad co-founded. They started writing together on Brad's Feld Thoughts blog in 2005 with their Term Sheet series. After several other series about issues facing venture capital backed companies, Jason and Brad decided to start AsktheVC. Brad and Jason, along with three other partners have recently founded a new venture firm, the Foundry Group located in Boulder, Colorado.
