A New Year's Resolution

No I haven't abandoned blogging.  I've just been a little swamped lately.  So, one of my New Year's resolutions is to blog more.  (Hopefully I'm able to fulfill that resolution more than my prior resolutions to exercise more or eat better).

Anyhow, I just want to shoot a quick congratulations to a few of our portfolio companies.  First, to, for being selected as one of the 25 Most Innovative Products of the Year by PC World.  And second, to RockYou for being selected by Fortune Magazine as one of the "Six Leaps of Innovation" to "keep an eye on in 2008".  (Although, the list clearly can't be very selective if they also selected this).

Finally, I was amazed to see that our companies have been nominated for a total of nine
"Crunchie Awards" -- and if you haven't already voted, I encourage you to vote for Like, Pleo, Weatherbill, Attributor, 1-800-FREE-411, OpenAds, RockYou,, and Lance Tokuda.

I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.  (And stay tuned for some new blog posts in early January, as I usually keep my resolutions for at least a few weeks)...
