  • Jason Calacanis Goes Techcrunch50-wild on uStream

    Jason Calacanis, CEO of Mahalo and cofounder of the Techcrunch50 (formerly Techcrunch40) event where startup companies are given an opportunity to pitch their ideas and potentially get funded, lashed out at rival DEMO that offers a similar venue but at the cost of $18,000 for companies accepted into the program. I regret not catching all […]

  • Mokonji

    I began working on a project recently that I’m not ready to talk about in great detail. Let’s just say that it is somewhat the anti-social network, though it will take elements of social networks and tie into social networks and behave in many ways like social networks. However, it is not about social networks […]

  • Ebb and Flow; Blogging During a Conference; Bits and Pieces

    During conferences, I think it makes the most sense to blog in a format that Jason Calacanis made “special”. Stream of consciousness blogging. In other words, during conferences, I don’t have the time to fully develop thoughts like I would normally do to post usual content here. But that doesn’t mean there’s not a lot […]

  • Transparency is a Good Trait to Have for a Startup

    Something happened last night that was very, very funny. A number of people showed up at the unofficial PRE MashMeet party. Among those were myself and Ann Bernard of WhyGoSolo who was having a blast taking me to task for yesterday’s post as well as informing me that I didn’t have room to talk about […]

  • Thoughts on Investment and Incubation

    On this week’s District of Corruption show, Geoff and I discussed entrepreneurship, incubation, investment and the role that a company like Launchbox Digital plays in a regional community. It all stemmed from Jimmy Gardner’s post titled Are DC Startups Developing a Complex? Launchbox provides a critical piece for a burgeoning startup community – namely, the […]

  • Age of Exploration 500 Years Later

    In 1519, an explorer by the name of Ferdinand Magellan began a journey that would be the first of it’s kind. He would lead an expedition that would circle the globe for the first time. It would cost him his Portuguese citizenship, 219 crew members, 4 ships and even his own life. In the process, […]

  • Leveraging Yesterdays Technologies for Tomorrows Innovations

    Perhaps I’m getting old fartish, but I’m mildly disturbed by some of the “innovations” that are coming out these days. It once was cool, but now it’s just getting obnoxious. Take Cumul.us for instance, a service I just discovered today thanks to my friend Frank Gruber over at Somewhat Frank. This service tries to take […]

  • Startup Truths: There is no Time or Money

    I was reading Matt Mullenweg’s post about an interview that Robert Scoble recently had with Jonathon Schwarz of Sun in which it seemed Sun continued to be disconnected with reality. With respect, Schwarz responded and apologized for the perception that Sun presented. (As a sidenote, the comments on Schwarz’ entry are quite good). Matt makes […]
