There's very few things I read everyday, other than the NYTimes. But A VC is one of them.
I've known Fred for almost 30 years now. (Fred is married to my sister.) Aside from generally being one of the smartest people I know, he has always had an innate ability to understand and synthesize a concept - whether familiar with the topic or not - and quickly and concisely, regurgitate it back in his own words, determine the core of the problem, and most often times, figure out how to solve it.
When he first started writing his blog, I didn't think he was quite able to capture that focus in his words. But quickly, he got better. And now has excelled. Everyday, he writes primarily about his business, helping to build technology companies, the industry's leading issues of the day - and sometimes politics and music. Whatever the topic, it's almost always thoughtful, to the point and has a unique and interesting point of view. If you are interested in these topics, you're probably already following him. If you're not, you should be.
Nicely done, Freddy.
