Fund: Union Square Ventures
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-02-19
I pitched Fred Wilson a few months ago and was quickly turned down. The dialogue was semi-cordial, and he cited logic espoused on his blog many months before as the reason. It was like he expected me to know what he wanted to invest in because he is a blogger.
I have read his blog and it oscillates all over the place. Lately, it sounds like he should be investing in some mashup music machine for talented teenagers that make 60's love songs with a Twitter API for karaoke. That, or a Facebook consulting agency.
What seems stranger to me is that Fred recently insulted The Funded, TechCrunch and VentureBeat in his blog... That strikes me as a dumb move, even if he is right on all counts. Maybe he is so busy that he did not think, but then I would not want that type of loose cannon mistakes on the board level even if there was a good excuse.PRIVATE: Members Only
