Fred Wilson’s full blog can be found here. Bio: I am a VC. I have been for 19 years. I help people start and build technology companies. I do it in NYC, which isn’t the easiest place to build technology companies, but its getting better. I love my work.  I am the Managing Partner of two venture capital firms, Flatiron Partners and Union Square Ventures. I also am a husband and a father of 3 kids. I do that in NYC too. And it isn’t the easiest place to raise a family either. But it’s getting better too. I love my family more than my work. I also love music, art, yoga, biking, skiing, and golf. That’s a lot of interests for a guy who works 70 hours a week and loves his family. But I manage to make it work.

Why We Left Before Hurricane Sandy Arrived

I ended yesterday’s post with this:

Hurricane Sandy looks to be coming through NYC at that time and I don’t know what that may cause me and my family to be doing at that time. We live right on the Hudson, at the border of Zone more

Will Android Tablets Overtake the iPad?

Android Tablets Catching Up with the iPad

I saw this in a story I was reading this morning about mobile reading habits:

A year ago, the iPad accounted for 81% of tablets in circulation. That has fallen to 52%, with Android-based tablets grabbing a 48% share of the market. Amazon’s Kindle Fire accounts more

In Defense of the Facebook Sell-Off

Of course early investors are going to sell-off some Facebook shares. That’s how venture capitalism works.

There is a lot of sturm und drang out there in the worlds of social media, finacial media, and just plain media about all the lockups coming off and all the insider selling more

Using Bluetooth at Home

I’ve written a fair bit about how we are using technologies like Bluetooth and Airplay in our homes and cars to connect our tablets and phones to our cars and home entertainment systems.

Are Obama’s Attacks About Romney’s Departure Date From Bain Unfair?

Mitt Romney is taking some flack for continuing to have ongoing involvement in Bain Capital well after he supposedly left the firm for good in 1999. I am not supporting Romney for President as I can’t get comfortable with more

I am socially liberal. I was thrilled when more
