Thank You – Mendelson’s Musings Wins ABA Award

As I had posted earlier, the editors of the ABA Journal today announced Mendelson’s Musings as one of the top 100 best websites by lawyers, for lawyers. I thought that was cool, especially given that my time dedicated to legal issues is only a part-time job on this blog. Today, I learned that I won…

Happy Holidays and to a Wonderful New Year

Thanks to all of you who support my musings, ramblings and bad grammar here on the blog.  It’s been a great year for myself and Foundry Group and I’m excited to see what 2010 bring us. We’ve been fortunate to invest in a lot of great companies, meet and reconnect with many wonderful entrepreneurs and…

Community Office Hours Coming Up

I have another set of open office hours coming up – this Thursday, November 5th.  If you are interested in getting together, you can sign up here.  The TechStars bunker is where I’ll be and I hope, that like last time, I’ll get to meet some new friends.

Community Hours

When I first moved here 3 years ago, I started the Boulder Open Coffee Club to meet new people and take the occasional “random meeting.” What I’ve found, however is that the group discussion is always so engaging that I usually don’t have enough time to meet folks one-on-one.

Boulder Startup Executive Email List

Eric Marcoullier, CEO of Gnip has set up an email list exclusively for Boulder / Denver-based startup executives. Eric’s hypothesis is that Boulder executives need a forum to better connect, access and spread knowledge bases.  The rules are simple for membership: 1. Your company must be funded (at least some angel money); 2. C-level and…

Off Email For the First Time Since 1994

Just reading the title that I just typed is really unbelievable, but in hindsight it’s true. I’m not good at taking time off.  Part of it is that I love what I have done professionally, but a lot of it are my issues.  Vacations are not a natural act for me. That being said, even…

The "Other Pine Street" in Boulder County

When Ryan and I moved to Boulder a little over 2.5 years ago, we both bought homes on Pine street in downtown Boulder (random, not planned).  To our dismay, the online mapping services didn’t know where we lived, despite our homes being built over 100 years ago.  Ryan blogged about it at the time.  It…

Sign Of Southwest Airlines Losing Its Mojo?

I’ve always been a huge fan of Southwest Airlines.  Whether it was how they battled American Airline’s predatory pricing tactics in their early days to former CEO Herb Kelleher arm wrestling for the right to use a tag line, I’ve always found Southwest to be different than all other airlines.  They are what they are…
