15.04.21 10:48 Leadership Matters

Schlagwörter: life lessons, Sports

Last night I watched the NY Knicks win their fourth straight game on the road in New Orleans. They are now 29-27 and have a fighting chance of being a .500 team this season with only 16 regular season games left. This is essentially the same team that went 21-45 last year. Elfrid Payton, RJ […]

13.04.21 09:33 Entrepreneurship In Latin America

Schlagwörter: entrepreneurship, VC & Technology

It is a little known part of my career, but for a brief period from 1997 to 2001, I was part of a small group of investors who helped to create a startup ecosystem in Latin America. It all started with a company called StarMedia which created a Yahoo-like “portal” for Latin America. My partner […]

12.04.21 18:54 My New Metrocard

Schlagwörter: NYC

For years, one of my prized possessions has been my MTA EasyPayXpress Metrocard. It’s a little worn down from a lot of use because it auto refills itself. It is a Metrocard that is connected to a “card on file” and it automatically refills itself so that it always has money on it and you […]

08.04.21 11:51 Vaccinations At Scale

Schlagwörter: Current Affairs

There was a day in the last week when four million Americans got a Covid vaccine. That’s more than one percent of all citizens of the US. One in every hundred people in the US got vaccinated on the same day. Think about that! Mayor de Blasio tweeted yesterday that 4.7 million doses of the […]

We have a house in the northeast United States where the summers are warm and the winters are cold. We have solar on the roof and we heat and cool this house with electricity. This is the electrical generation/consumption chart for all of 2020 for that house: We produce almost all of the heating and […]

05.04.21 10:48 Hubspot

Schlagwörter: life lessons

I do a lot of “bulk emailing” but I hate sending bulk emails. I prefer to personalize emails and send them one by one so that the recipient understands that the email came from me. What that has meant is that I take google sheets full of email addresses and I cut and paste a […]

02.04.21 10:36 Funding Friday: Sentien Audio

Schlagwörter: crowdfunding

I wrote a blog post last fall asking for advice for headphones that don’t go into my ear and allow me to hear ambient noise around me. I got a ton of responses and that led me to bone-conducting headphones. I have been using AfterShokz bone conducting headphones for the last six months and they […]

01.04.21 10:39 Recycling

Schlagwörter: VC & Technology

Most venture capital funds have a “recycling” provision that allows them to sell some percentage of their investments and reinvest those funds back into new investments instead of distributing that capital to their limited partners. There is no standard recycling percentage in the market, but I think 20-25% is fairly common. We do this at […]

Schlagwörter: blockchain, crypto, digital collectibles, Games

I have written about all of these things here at AVC before. But I am writing again as there is likely to be a bunch of chatter about Dapper, Flow, and NBA Top Shot as the news of a financing round comes out today. Financings don’t really interest me but companies do. And this is […]

29.03.21 10:46 Staying Positive

Schlagwörter: life lessons

One of the gifts that I got was the ability to stay positive. I am grateful to my parents, my wife, and my genes (and anyone else responsible too). It is such a superpower. I don’t just mean optimism. I mean saying nice things about people. I mean keeping a smile on your face. I […]

Schlagwörter: art, crypto, non fungible tokens

I have a Samsung Frame in my home office. I think I posted a photo of it here at AVC once before. But for those who did not see that post, here it is: I’ve had it for something like three years and I change the digital art on it from time to time. Digital […]

Schlagwörter: entrepreneurship, VC & Technology

A friend and I dined last night at a restaurant that opened in our neighborhood last summer, in the middle of the pandemic. For the first six months of its existence, they could not welcome diners into the space that they had spent time and money creating. They carried on, figured out how to make […]

23.03.21 10:55 Crypto and Climate Continued

Schlagwörter: climate crisis, crypto

I wrote about crypto and climate earlier this month and suggested that the narrative that crypto is bad for the climate is not as straightforward as many make it out to be. Over last weekend (a beautiful one in the northeast), two of my partners wrote on this topic. My partner Albert took a similar […]

22.03.21 09:57 Stack Overflow For Teams Goes Freemium

Schlagwörter: Web/Tech

I could not help but use the word Freemium in the headline to this post. For those that don’t know, the word Freemium was invented here at AVC, back in 2006. I am quite proud of that fact, even though I did not come up with the word myself. With that business taken care of, […]

Schlagwörter: crowdfunding

This project was right at the front of my Kickstarter home page this morning. I clicked play and watched the video (you should too). The project creator, Daniel Wegner, says “there is power in young people, there is power in talent, there is power in art.” I agree with all of that and I backed […]

I have written many times here that it is important to me that I control the platform that I publish on. I use the open-source WordPress software for my content management system and run that on a hosted server. I use my own domain, AVC.com, to locate my writings on the Internet. That has served […]

Schlagwörter: crypto, Current Affairs, digital collectibles, entrepreneurship

There are these news moments that we remember vividly forever. The plane flying into the World Trade Center. The mob breaking into the Capitol. Reagan at the Berlin Wall. Just writing the words, I can see the images in my head. Our portfolio company Recount Media is all about these moments. Recount captures them quickly […]

16.03.21 12:41 Taxing Airbnb Stays In NYS and NYC

Schlagwörter: NYC, policy, Politics

I guess the theme of this week is taxes. But today’s post is about something completely different. A Company wants to collect and remit taxes to NYS and NYC and lawmakers don’t want the money. I’ve written about this sad tale before but the story continues. Back in February, NYS Governor Cuomo put a provision […]

15.03.21 11:26 Capital Gains, Carried Interest, and Ordinary Income

Schlagwörter: policy, Politics

Most of our family’s income comes in the form of capital gains. And most of that comes in the form of carried interest on capital gains. Carried interest means the share of the profits that the managers of VC funds get (and PE funds and Hedge funds too). For many years, there have been attempts […]

10.03.21 18:45 Stockton’s Basic Income Experiment

Schlagwörter: NYC, policy

I have been interested in the concept of Universal Basic Income (UBI) since first hearing about it from my partner Albert years ago. I’ve mentioned it on and off here at AVC a bunch since then. NYC will get its own UBI experiment if front-runner Andrew Yang is elected Mayor. Yang proposes to spend $1bn […]

09.03.21 15:51 Crypto and Climate

Schlagwörter: climate crisis, crypto

I keep reading that Bitcoin, Ethereum, NFTs, etc are a climate issue. It is true that proof of work mining which secures the Bitcoin and Ethereum blockchains uses electricity to do that work. And certainly there are carbon emissions associated with that electricity consumption. However, it is not as simple as that for the following […]

With vaccinations topping 90mm doses in the US and upwards of 75mm doses likely to be injected into arms in the US in March, many companies are starting to think about what a return to the office might look like this summer and fall. I read two great posts this weekend talking about what this […]

My normal practice on Fridays is to post a Kickstarter project that I have backed that I think is interesting and that others might want to back. But today, I want to talk about Kickstarter’s Watch Now on iTunes offering. If you are like us and have watched so much TV during the pandemic that […]
