Here's a Q&A with Nina Kjellson, done after she crossed Sand Hill Road to join Canaan Partners after 13 years at InterWest Partners. http://bizj.us/1jjw3s

Don't bother staying up late tonight to watch the second episode of "Bazillion Dollar Club." Syfy canceled it after just one show, as I reported exclusively yesterday. 500 Startups' Dave McClure talks about it in this story.  http://bizj.us/1jfvba
The show's premiere was just last week, with 500 Startups founding partner and Highway1's Brady Forrest touting it onstage at TechCrunch Disrupt and on numerous media outlets.
