We read the startup blogs so you don’t have to.
Jason Cohen explains how to hire employee #1 (practical, tested advice). Fred Wilson explains how to make an email intro without making yourself look bad (this is how I do it). Bill Gurley explains why Google will pay mobile device companies to use their OS. Fred Destin explains why, much of the time, he doesn’t know why he passes on investments (finally someone admits it — I look for reasons to say yes, not reasons to say no). Chris Dixon explains why he’s reassured when Sequoia invests in a Y Combinator company. Fake Steve Jobs is receiving critical advice from Vladimir Putin (from the humor department).
Enjoy the knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.
