"they have a product called Direct Checkout. it's a big part of their revenue model and user experience. this allows them to extend Direct Checkout to the real world. using Square would mean giving Square all of the payment business. not a good move for a bunch of reasons." - Fred Wilson

"feld.com is closest to avc i think suster is a machine. that guy never met another paragraph he wanted to add. but his posts are really good. gurley and horowitz are the best of silicon valley. both are people i admire greatly. my friend bijansabet (.com) is the soul of the VC business. he oozes empathy. both on his blog and in real life. those are the best VC bloggers out there in my opinion On Thursday, October 23, 2014, Disqus" - Fred Wilson

Re: Union Square’s Wilson Said to Recommend Shorting Netflix, EBay - http://www.bloomberg.com/news...
"this is complete and utter nonsense. i made comments about both of these stocks in my talk with Phillipe Laffont yesterday but did not recommend shorting any stocks. i don't think shorting stocks is a particularly good idea because there is limited upside and unlimited downside. my comments about Netflix were complimentary about the leadership they've shown in getting the entertainment market to go over the top but the unfortunate thing for them is that everyone is going to copy them now and that will make things more competitive for them" - Fred Wilson
