"Banks (when not in mass hysteria mode) generally don't lend money in the absence of collateral or cast-iron cash flows. A VC requires neither of these." - David Semeria

Re: Feature Friday: Distributed Identity - http://avc.com/2014...
"The blockchain is simply a distributed ledger which nobody controls and which is practically impossible to modify without the necessary crypto key. But if you let your key fall into the wrong hands, then they can operate on your behalf. This isn't a weakness with the blockchain itself, it's a security issue faced by every service which requires authentication, and is probably the hardest problem to solve on the web. I imagine that sooner or later someone will finally invent a viable biometric solution and in the process make a packet." - David Semeria

"Where do you see the border between identity and authentication? I ask because I created a onename account in March and now I have forgotten which email I used to create the account. It's no big deal for me to fix this, but I was pondering this question as I started looking through my various email accounts for the original email confirmation." - David Semeria

Re: The First Law Of Internet Physics - http://avc.com/2014...
"Up to a point. Some sites let you read above the fold for free, or read X number of articles per week in their entirety. In other words, the content is produced and funded by the paywall. By allowing limited free access to what you've already got, the hope is to enlarge the paid base. The trick with freemium is knowing of much (or what parts) of your inventory (be it software, music, or media content) to give away for free." - David Semeria

"Just for the record, freemium is not a business model, it's a marketing model. The underlying business model is still subscriptions, you just consider the cost of servicing the free users as the marketing spend required to gain conversions." - David Semeria
