Happy New Year! I am really excited to be jumping into 2007. I have a feeling that 2007 is going to be a watershed year in the technology world in many respects. And I am certainly looking forward to poking and prodding the market along from my seat here at August Capital.
As I go into my fourth year of blogging on VentureBlog, I hope that I can continue to be a resource to the entrepreneurial community. When Andrew Anker and I started VentureBlog, it was in hopes of providing a window into what was then a very closed community. That continues to be my goal, although the black box of venture capital is somewhat more illuminated these days than it was a few short years ago. Nonetheless, if there are topics that you would find it valuable for me to explore, please do drop me a note (hornik_at_augustcap). In karaoke and on VentureBlog, I am happy to take requests.
One thing that I am very excited about in the new year is the opportunity to continue working with Craig Syverson on VentureCast. If you've listened to the last couple of shows we recorded before the new year, you'll see that, for better or for worse, we have landed on a format that is conversational, relaxed and at times pretty goofy. We ramble all over the place, but we talk about all sorts of relevant topics along the way. I won't pretend that it is the most direct source of information you will find on the Web. On the other hand, if you have the 45 minutes to spare, we'll try hard to make it entertaining and occasionally informative.
Thanks for continuing to read VentureBlog and listen to VentureCast. I really do appreciate it. I'm looking forward to a great new year.
