The Link Between Infinite Computing and Machine Learning

Obscured by Smashing Pumpkins - To date, I have posted at least eleven Pumpkins songs on this blog, but oddly nothing from their 1994 Pisces Iscariot. Though it was billed as just a release of outtakes and B-sides, it quickly rose on the charts and grew their already large fan base on the strength of songs like the cover of Landslide. The albums has a pretty wide array of softer ballads to all out kinetic rocker tunes, but one of my favorite tracks is Obscured.

Between 1994 and 1996 I made 40 angel investments with the money I made from the sale of my first company. I know I’m getting old. I remember in 2007 when the idea of a super angel appeared, where successful entrepreneurs were suddenly angel investors making 10 or more seed investments a year. This was a “new” innovation that was celebrated with much fanfare.

The Best Approach To A Board Package

Feld Thoughts

I joined my first board of a company other than mine in 1994 (NetGenesis). For any that aren’t awesome, I’ve tried to kill the experiment quickly so it didn’t hurt anything and when I reflect on everything I’ve tried I think I’ve managed to “do no harm”, which is more than I can say for a lot of the other VCs who I’ve sat on boards with since 1994. Since then, I’ve sat on hundreds of boards and been to a zillion board meetings.
