  • Hey -- no stealthy blogging please. Stand up and be counted. Great to see you here. As I've said many times, I think blogs are a prototyping platform with incredible upside in terms of instant feedback.

    Best and WELCOME! ->Halley

  • IL-4 Smallpox and your blogspot is the first hit on Google ... makes me wonder what the world is coming to ... maybe capitalism will save humanity after all ... what do you think of DHS efforts for a realtime bio-sensor network?

  • Oh, me sir, I´ve found you looking for "hot and brilliant guys" on google... I would like to talk about why "anonymus" wants to discuss on "how hot Steve is"... He/she/it suggests u r "hot", but post as "anonymus". This are the pros and cons of blogging... Welcome to blogger´s world, Mr. Jurvetson. It is a real pleasure to have you in. Btw, you need no promotion...

    BTW - Tim Harper's blog is how I got here.

    I wonder how many readers of blogs are actually bloggers themselves :-)

  • Welcome to the blogosphere Steve. I am up in Vancouver, BC, Canada and found you through Steve Hall's link to your main page. I have been following you and many other VCs for the past few years and was pleased when I found out you had invested in one of our very own home-grown startups, D-Wave Systems, here in Vancouver. Best wishes on the small-tech funding as well as on the blogging. My blog at covers some of the same topics that I think you write about.

  • 1982 at age 16 I discovered and plotted the Singularity. 2020. Then I read Feynman and then Vinge. Then Kurzweil and Moravec and Drexler. Then found and found you!

    My favorite line is "Vinge's Law" - roughly:"Anything that can be stated with no internal contradictions can be accomplished."

    In my field, the problems we have all have solutions that fit Vinge's Law.

    There is a class of doers at the cutting edge of the fields such as finance, genetics,etcwho will agree with most of what has to say and offer.

    I would look at how social arrangements are changing as well.

  • I'd like to talk about the internationalization of Venture Capital, and about new technologies such as your favorite-nanotech.

    This link has now been published on VCJ. You're going to have many more people in here.

  • Steve,

    I am a (mature age) masters student in Australia, doing an MSTC 'Master of Science and Technology Commercialization' - (ex Ogilvy Manging Director, ex MD of an International Holographics company) Actually you are a 'Comrade' of mine at - I have been working on a technology project with an Indian developer, which I know is a very innovative, infinitely scalable P2P financial services and communication application, I would love to give you an 'executive summary' its not quite ready to pitch to DFJ, as we don't really have an appropriate company structure.

  • I found this blog through a web search on your name in November. I knew your name because I listened to a presentation you gave on Venture Capital at the Foresight Senior Associates Conference in 2000. I wasn't extremely interested in the topic at the time.

    I was (and continue to be) interested in technological advancement, specifically the development of new technologies. A former believer in the Free Software Movement, I've been putting new software and solutions under the GPL and in the public domain. Unfortunately, no one is paying attention to the technology I'm putting out there.

    The massive use and integration that technology developed by complete self sustaining businesses, like google, enjoy has led me to become interested in commercial enterprise. Technology is of little value if it is disregarded.

    I will not write a business plan, due to my lack of business knowledge. But, I will apply for a job with a VC funded start-up in the next six months to start down what may be a better path.

    From this blog, I hope to gain some insight into the VC culture and a better understanding of how that world works in preperation for that new job.

    Thank you for your openness, both here and in the various writtings, presentations, and interviews you've done. It has been helpful in my understanding of how things work.

  • Your assistant, Shelley, pinged me today to say that you wanted to learn more about my company, Phonex. So, I am learning more about you. Your personal web page provided awesome insights and windows into who you are. Great information; glad you provided it.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:23 AM  

  • Random walk. I think a friend of mine forwarded me a funny picture marca, which led to random flickr surfing, and you. I liked the pictures, so I added you as a contact. Later I learned that you tend to cover many of the same topics my head buzzes with, so I subscribed to the j-overload feed. Funny how your name keeps popping up, POST fundraiser, DFJ, I have a feeling I'll run into you in person one of these days. It is always strange to run into someone whose blog you've been following, the person & your idea of who they are rarely match up.

    By Blogger atotic, at 4:44 PM  

  • found you thru Fast Company link.

    By Blogger just sayin', at 12:59 PM  

  • I found out about you because an old high school buddy of mine spent a fortune on an eBay auction to eat with you and I thought to myself... man, if Mark wanted to spend that kind of bread- you must be pretty smart! Anyways, I don't understand half the stuff you talk about in this blog, but I love your pictures and think you're just scratching the surface of your intelligence. Keep creating!

  • I just seem to subscribe blogs with J in the title for some reason. not even sure what you post about, but apparently I read it, or have for some time.

    Why don't you talk about some of the latest VC investment trends you're seeing in the valley?

    We share most interests. Keep posting please!

  • Dude, i need help. Consider yourself my Dr. Phil of nano investment. I only say this because I know you have loads of time to answer stupid questions from out-of-touch Texans, so naturally, i thought i'd ask: how would one, say, with about five bucks get started investing in companies that your firm invests in? I'm young, very optomistic about the future of nanotech and things such as LEDs, but like I said, have about five or so bucks. Found you via Luminus-DFJ. Oh, and the chicks say your hot, so that's a plus, right? Would absolutely love a reply to:, but won't hold my breath. Gracias, jf
