    Twitter integrates with Yelp for location tags in the UK and Japan, bypassing Foursquare

    A year ago, Twitter ramped up its game in location services when it announced an integration with Foursquare to provide venue suggestions when you wanted to tag where you were tweeting.

    How real businesses are using machine learning

    There is no question that machine learning is at the top of the hype curve. And, of course, the backlash is already in full force: I’ve heard that old joke “Machine learning is like teenage sex; everyone is talking about it, no one is actually doing it” about 20 times in the past week alone. But from where I sit, running a company that enables a huge number of real-world… Read More

    Foursquare’s Dennis Crowley and Jeff Glueck to check-in at Disrupt NY

    Foursquare is an institution in the New York tech scene, so it only makes sense for us to have Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley and the company’s new CEO Jeff Glueck on stage at Disrupt New York in May. As you may already know, Foursquare has recently transitioned Jeff Glueck to the CEO position, with Dennis Crowley moving into a President and Chairman role. And while that’s the… Read More

    You’ve Only Got One Shot At Building A Consumer Unicorn

    Imagine if the founder of a very successful consumer technology company knocked on your door and offered to get you in on the ground floor of their new enterprise. Almost any VC would jump at the chance, as would most engineers and designers. But I wonder if they’re most often making a mistake? I can point to a number of founders who have had repeat success in B2B markets. Read More

    Our Marketplace Obsession And Bubble

    Service marketplaces have recently become Silicon Valley darlings. The marketplace model has been a popular way for VCs to efficiently tap into the local economies at scale, specifically the $800 billion home services space.
