General Partner at IDG Ventures
Jeffrey Bussgang has launched Boston VC Blog
, which is his perspective on the industry as a former entrepreneur and as a VC.
IDG Ventures is an early-stage venture capital firm based in Boston. (Yup, I still keep in touch with those east coasters)……Jeff was at Upromise, Open Market, Boston Consulting Group, etc. Check it out.
The view from Montara — from behind my laptop. Beyond the flag is the marvel of the magical and wild Pacific Ocean. It will be hard to say goodbye to this tranquility and enter the city, but enter San Francisco one must do. It’s time.
After getting two emails from Boston-based friends who have been freezing and shoveling snow for weeks, I am reminded about a fabulous Media Center event
at Harvard this week: Whose News? Media, Technology and the Common Good.
The audience and speakers are a wonderful blend of content, solutions, media……the list goes on, including New York Times Digital Editor-in-Chief Len Apcar, Boston Channel.com, VP of Strategic Planning at Comcast Ty Ahmed-Taylor, Wonkette’s
Ana Marie Cox, one of my favorite people and analysts Rob Enderle
, Washington Post columnist Dan Froomkin, Yahoo Editorial Director Bill Gannon, Jeff Jarvis
, AP’s Jim Kennedy, Craig’s List Craig Newmark, Jay Rosen
, Executive Editor of MediaChannel Danny Schecter, Halley Suitt
and David Weinberger
, among others.
The symposium will be based on cross-sector discourse, conducted U.N. style, with participants seated in a U-shaped arena for discussion. Three dialogs will be held, each focused around an inflection point in media, technology and society. Wish I were going to be in Boston for this one.
