Over at the Under The Radar blog, Irina Slutsky’s email interview with me is posted:
Given that it’s so easy to create a start-up these days, how will the venture community get involved when most of the companies aren’t necessarily looking for funding, or aren’t fundable?
There’s been some discussion recently that what companies need more than money is good advice and access to the right networks. Social intelligence and social capital. I spend half of my time with startups for that reason.
If you had to recoin the term “Web 2.0,” how would you rename it?
I personally like the Web 2.0 term. I don’t think you could distill the sense of so much change in many dimensions into one or two adjectives. So the 2.0 suffix works the right kind of semantic shift for me.
