More Music Recommendations

I’ve been completely negligent updating my music recommendations (drinking too much beer, apparently), but today I updated my music page where you can find what I’m listening to and check out some of my own tunes as well. I promise to do a better job updating, so check back in over time. 

American Film Company

I wouldn’t consider myself a movie expert, but I’m excited about a new movie company – The American Film Company.  They have a really unique philosophy:  to create engaging, commercial, historically accurate feature films culled from America’s storied past. When I first heard the idea, I thought “neat” but can Hollywood make a movie that…

I Want Slower Email

As a venture capitalist, I normally have a voracious appetite for “better and faster,” but I am coming to the conclusion that in some cases I want slower email. Huh? I want slower email, because I need to protect myself and others from me:  “Mr. Zero In-box Guy.”  It’s sad, but true that I can’t…

Are PR People Becoming the New Spammers?

Is it just me or are you receiving a lot more emails that look like this: Hi Jason, Wanted to make you aware of the below funding announcement just released regarding a new [BLAH-nothing I care about]. Happy to make any introductions to the CEO, [John Smith] or any of the  below individuals for further…

Attorney River

The guys over at Legal River emailed today and let me know about a new product offering that they’ve come up with called Attorney River. Attorney River is trying to help improve upon the lawyer directory model, i.e. Martindale, which has not seen a lot of innovation in the last few decades. Attorney River allows…
