"Of course. That's the reality. But educating them and their staffers helps way more than you would imagine to overcome that. Once they realize that these innovations might help them (ie avoid the 3.5% tax on their online political contributions, for example), you'd be shocked how wide their eyes open up" - Fred Wilson

"Great long wandering post Jerry. It covers so much fruitful territory. I've been there to see the last two decades and I have to say you have emerged from them happy, healthy, and oozing calm. You are a testament to the work you urge us all to do on our selves. And congrats on the launch of Reboot. It sounds great. A coaching collective as it were. Anything you and your colleagues can do to increase the accessiblity of your teachings and your group sessions, the better off we will all be Mazel Tov" - Fred Wilson

"It is true that devs cost more and you have to build for three platforms not one these days but I still think revenues have to be greater or at least equal to costs at some point. Its not acceptable to lose money forever just because its costs more to operate the business" - Fred Wilson

"capex could be building out the SF offices, it could be servers, it could be anything it could be a truly one time thing or it could be an ongoing thing one never really knows unless you can drill down and get the details but even after spending something like $90mm on capex in the most recent quarter, they had a surplus of cash flow they are most certainly not losing money on a cash basis" - Fred Wilson
Re: Burn Baby Burn - http://avc.com/2014...
"from the cash flow statement in the most recent quarter https://www.google.com/finance... twitter had $124mm of cash flow from operating activities that's a lot of cash flowing from the business" - Fred Wilson
Re: Burn Baby Burn - http://avc.com/2014...
"not necessarily because the cost of that stock is being valued at current prices, not the prices at issue. and you'd have a lot less dilution if you paid cash. gaap accounting on options is a double dip (and wrong in my mind), you take both a P&L hit and a dilution hit. you pay for it twice." - Fred Wilson

"we are not enabling it. we are fighting it. and losing. we never ever push money on entrepreneurs. we almost always offer less money at a lower price than what others offer. it's a source of great pride. we put our money where our mouth is." - Fred Wilson
