Dave OlsonSo the company that acquires companies just (seemingly) to thwart innovation & drag them into the ground, is being acquired by a company with a wonderful track record of doing the same. What a wonderful marriage :-)
But oh my! What about Flickr?
Mykyta PonomarenkoI used to really look up to this guy. But after suing Gawker into bankruptcy and now supporting Donald Trump. It seems like he doesn't understand why business and government should be separate entities. I hope he doesn't continue down this path, he used to be my favourite libertarian. Now he just seems like a political force in the far right.
Mark FromsonHe just wanted to come out to the world on national television. Why? Simple. He's a narcissist. There's no shortage of billionaires that have this issue.

Tian-Yuan ZhaoI legit thought he was gonna troll everyone there and be the saving grace of the RNC and this entire election by denouncing Trump instead in the best way possible (for the good of humanity). However his speech was simply a shock, in both a good and bad way. Still scratching my head why a guy like him would support a guy like Drumpf
Excited to announce a weekly column in collaboration with the great folks at BetaKit (special thanks to Douglas Soltys for all the hard work in building and managing this).
Each week Katherine Hague and I will answer questions submitted from entrepreneurs. Katherine will provide the operator (she built and sold ShopLocket) and the Angel perspective (based on her her stellar work at FemaleFunders and making individual investments herself) and I will provide the VC perspective.

Alexander NormanI think this is here to stay if the continue to improve product. The key here is the brand and the loyalty towards it. My daughter plays with the cards and watches the cartoons. Why wouldn't she want to catch them via her phone? The game is buggy but if they improve it I see her using it for a while. It's not the tech but the content driving this.
