I’ve been tracking these guys’ views over the last few years now, and I find them a great barometer of what’s current or going to be hot soon as they have loads of experience as serial entrepreneurs themselves and now as VC’s of some significance.
I find Brad Feld’s
views insightful as he is fully engaged with the entrepreneurial community and the companies he’s involved in, and is not a ‘walking ego’. I experience him as straightforward, direct, no bullshit and really walking the talk. You can follow him on Twitter at @bfeld or track his blog at www.feldthoughts.com.
is an editor, author and speaker, but more importantly a great thinker. Read ‘The Search’, his book on how Google and it’s rivals have impacted culture and how we interact with the world, and why it matters. Follow him at @johnbattelle or http://battellemedia.com/
from Union Square ventures also has strong views and opinions, and is not afraid to share them honestly. Why does he matter — he invested in Twitter early on amongst some other small successes ;-) Follow him @fredwilson or http://www.avc.com/
I drag myself through his 2 hour long weekly podcasts (http://thisweekin.com/thisweekin-startups/) and fluctuate between being entertained, marvelling at his huge ego, being irritated by a bit of waffling, but mostly, loving every second as he has great guests, the show is a bit rough around the edges and completely spontaneous, and unlike most, he says what he thinks, which is a trait I respect. Keep it up, Jason.
That’s it. Follow these 4 and your finger will always be on the pulse.
