Interviews on TechStars, Venture Capital, and Angel Investing

I’m always happy to be “content.”  Following are a few interviews I’ve shown up in lately. Q&A with Brad Feld of TechStars: This is a nice short interview in Mass High Tech that happened at the Nantucket Conference a few weeks ago.  It talks about TechStars, Boulder, and some of the magic required to build…

Feld-Weiser One-on-One: Feld on Work-Life Balance

On Wednesday, June 10th, 6:00-7:00pm in the Wittemyer Courtroom, Wolf Law Building at CU Boulder I’m doing an interview with Phil Weiser titled Feld on Work-Life Balance.  I’ve written extensively about Work-Life Balance on this blog and have a wide range of opinions and perspectives on it.  Phil’s intro the event sets it up nicely….

It’s All About The Faces

I heard the line “it’s all about the faces” from someone in the past few weeks.  The line stuck with me and I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately.  Last night I tried an experiment and changed my twitter avatar to a graphic done by Anthony Dimitre, a really talented local designer.  While there…

Following the D Conference on My iPhone

D7 starts Tuesday.  As usual, the speaker list is killer.  But, I can’t go as I have a board meeting in LA on Wednesday and I’m keynoting the IdaVation Conference in Boise on Thursday.  My solution – the new All Things Digital iPhone app.  It is built with the latest version of the NewsGator iPhone…

TechStars Kicks Into High Gear

As the TechStars Boulder program starts its third week, the TechStars Boston program kicks off its first week.  Andrew Hyde has a good summary of the first two weeks of Boulder (along with a callout to TechStars TV) and the Boston Herald ran an interview with me, Shawn Broderick, and David Cohen on the creation…

Random Meetings in a Car

I tried an experiment last week when I was in Seattle.  I did two of my “random meetings” in cars between things. I had a full day (a run with TA McCann (the CEO of Gist), the Gist board meeting, and then the Impinj board meeting.  I had to catch a flight home to Denver…

The Public Restroom as HCI Laboratory

Well – that serves me right.  If you requested a Gist beta invite, be patient.  I’m grinding through my inbox and you’ll have your invite by tomorrow at the latest.  Thanks everyone who requested one, especially for all the kind feedback on the blog. But that’s not what I’m thinking about this morning.  Last week…

The Web Is Working Harder For Me

A few weeks ago I wrote a post titled The Maturing of the Implicit Web.  In it I talked about new releases from AdaptiveBlue and OneRiot.  As I sit here in my hotel room in Seattle waiting for TA McCann (CEO of Gist) to show up for our pre-board meeting run, I’m pondering how much…

Preparing For A First Meeting With Me

I have lots of short meetings.  I’ll try to meet with anyone that I can that is referred to me or seems to be doing something relevant to my world.  I’ll also meet with people I think are interesting or, in some cases, just to be polite. Some of the most interesting things I’m involved…

Book: Bricklin on Technology

I haven’t been reading that much lately (only 27 books so far this year) so I had a nice weekend chewing on a handful of them as I tried to catch my breath from a few weeks of constantly moving around. The first – and most enjoyable – was Bricklin on Technology .  I’ve somehow…
