Investment Stages
With so much startup investment activity these days, I find myself in regular discussion around valuations, stages of investment (and what those stages mean), and, from the entrepreneur’s perspective, when to engage various forms of investment. I’m a visual...

Orrin Keepnews On Technical Leadership?
Orrin, who recently passed away at 91 years of age, was an award winning Jazz music producer. As I was listening to this 1980's interview with him conducted by Terry Gross with NPR, his words about music production perfectly described how I've always viewed...

Great article. Esther Dyson is a world traveler. When we spoke last night, I think she said she'd been to India, London, Aspen, SF and NYC in the 10 days prior to her trip to Denver. This means that she comes at these things with a breadth of perspective. Over lunch today she noted that the government can provide a market. This piece – on school lunches – illustrates that perspective. Not an easy market to crack, mind you. But a big one.

food is ok. the restaurant is situated alone overlooking Boulder from the mountains; amazing. service is decent, but tries way to hard for what it is.
