The only problem with this book is that he finished writing shortly before the bubble burst. It ends with Webvan still being a high flying company. Otherwise, I love this account of VC at the height of the 2000 tech bubble.
About Lucas Nelson (me)
I’m a Partner at Lytical Ventures, an NYC based venture fund focused on Corporate Intelligence including cybersecurity, data analytics, and artificial intelligence. I’m also a Kauffman Fellow and world ranked pinball player.
I’m most excited by companies that are trying to make a dent in the universe.
In the past, I co-authored The Art of Software Security Testing, chaired DefCon – the largest hacking convention in the US – for 10 years, and have been actively involved in the NY tech community since 1999.
I collect pinball machines, am a proud father, and I still manage to code a bit now and then.
