Blogs We Love #2 *A VC*

Fred Wilson is a venture capitalist at Union Square Ventures in New York but he is my main source – besides Pandora – for discovering great new indie music and buried old Dylan video clips. In A VC, Wilson follows his bliss and I, along with thousands of others, am happy to follow along.

This is not a corporate blog like Blogs We Love #1 *Marriott on the move* – it is a personal shared journal full of life experiences, photos of his daughters playing basketball, and wonderful anecdotes about business. I learn a lot from Wilson about the monetization of blogs, social media, new tech gadgetry, and the companies he is excited by and investing in. Wilson’s intellectual curiosity is infectious. I did not understand that flickr is the seminal web 2.0 service until I read Wilson’s post and the 24 comments that expanded on his theme. He’s the kind of guy you would like to hang out with to talk family, sports, music, and the next big thing.

A friend emailed me a link to this performance of North Country Girl and I thought I’d share it with all of you. You’ll have to fast forward to 5:00 mins into the video. But when you do, you’ll see Johnny and Bob singing a duet live during Johnny (Cash)’s first TV show in July 1969. This duet was taped at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium. – A VC blog post

There is no design to speak of in A VC but there are plenty of widgets on display, gadgets being discussed, videos being shared, and useful intelligence bandied about. It’s a fun, nice way to learn – and it feels like a real community.
