Who said the New York Times is always accurate hasn't read this!

David Carr calls me a Venture Capitalist in this article in the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/05/business/media/michael-arringtons-audacious-venture.html?pagewanted=all

Hahahahah! Now THAT is a hoot! I haven't invested a single dollar in any tech startup.

I do invest my time and, more importantly, YOUR time in these things, but that's not being a venture capitalist.

As for Michael Arrington and his new venture fund my goal is to be a helpful and unbiased friend of all startups and that will continue as I try to stay clear of conflict of interest (if you perceive any conflict, let me know and we'll straighten that out). Heck, most of the companies I interview aren't even customers of Rackspace, so you can see how I treat companies vs. how other media companies treat them.

I will just say, though, that Mike hasn't returned my phone calls this weekend and he hasn't invited me to Techcrunch Disrupt, so I guess I'm on the outside of his whole empire, which is just fine with me.

The list of conferences I'm attending are at http://plancast.com/scobleizer so you can know where you can meet me.
