Better Late Than Arrogant

Welcome to my first attempt at blogging. Admittedly, I’m three years behind the bleeding edge, but I had to get over the inherent arrogance of blogging: that people would give a shitake about what I have to say.

A book every two or three years is one thing, but a daily blog? (Not that I’m committing to daily blog.) However, many people pounded on me, so here goes. Not that you can hold me to this, but I’ll write about entrepreneurship, venture capital, innovation, public speaking, Macintosh, and hockey.

From time to time, I will also discuss things that I do not “know,” but I’ve never let ignorance get in the way of expressing an opinion—and clearly, very few bloggers do! So let the good times roll…

Welcome Guy! Read the book not so long ago - taught me a lot. Look forward to following your blog.

What's with the Google ad junk on the right. Isn't the web saturated enough with that polution.. what does it add to the experience of reading your blog? Does a VC really need the extra dollars from google's crappy ads?

If I may be so bold, your column layout is way too narrow. Your CSS sets it as:

left column 180px
middle column 320px
right column 180px

320px for your body text? That the width of an old palmpilot. :)

Changing those to 25%, 50%, 25% would give you same proportions but let the text flow.

A very welcome event. thank you! - Skip

Great to see you blogging, Guy. BTW, your Garage.com tee shirt is a bit thin, which just goes to show how much I wear it. Got you in the RSS feeds folder of Safari now and look forward to your solutions for bad business behavior, aka bozosity.

Welcome to the blogosphere, I've set you up in my feedreader as well.

Welcome to the blogsphere Guy...looking forward to your...uuuuhhhhh...daily posts ;-)

As someone who loves your books, and speaking, I'm subscribed :)

Don't worry, no pressure to be a genius every day. Once a week should do just fine!

Happy New Year Guy and welcome to the blogosphere. You're too modest. Your blog will be a must read for many, including me.

Welcome Guy. I look forward to reading your musings and having you join the conversation!

Excellent! Glade to see you have a blog. I saw one of your lectures a few years ago and it completely change my why of thinking. Can't wait for more great thoughts for you to share.

Welcome to the blogosphere Guy! You will be great at it, and I'm looking forward to everything you have the time to post. 2006 should be a wild E-ticket ride.

Happy New Year Guy! Best of luck in the new year and on your new blog.

Happy New Year Guy! I've bookmarked you just below Scott Adams and Dave Barry on my morning blog run, so don't disappoint!

Also, loved Art of the Start... so did one of my dogs. It was her favorite book of 2005.
