We’ve just noted yet another Silicon Valley venture capitalist blogger: Will Price of Hummer Winblad.
Alarm:Clock notes that he is providing some good advice, and also points to his first tussle with a reader, who disagrees with his comment on angel investors.
Hummer Winblad has been kind of quiet in recent years. Back in 2001, reporter Ralph King wrote a classic article in Business 2.0 titled “Bonehead Safari — My Hunt for America’s Dumbest VC.” The full article is behind a registration page. Let’s just say he ended up at the door of Hummer Winblad. Hummer Winblad did Pets.com, which ate through $29 million, HomeGrocer (later part of Webvan, which later went out of business), $24 million. Gazoontite and…
Mambo, $14 million combined.
Perhaps it is time we moved on.
Price takes a stand on Washington’s bankrupt fiscal policy. Too few people in the industry seem to care, or say anything.
Judging from the comments on that post, though, he’s got spam problems, something that the Blogger software he is using has become known for.
We will follow his blog, which is also entitled Will Price, and probably put him up on our list of VC bloggers on our main page.
