Kevin: VC Fred Wilson talks about the importance of RSS to traffic for his well read blog. This comes in the context of yet another round of "RSS is dead" stories looking a drops in the consumption of content via RSS. The problem is that there has never been much consumption of content directly from RSS.

Kevin: Suw and I watched President Barack Obama's address to students in the United States, and one of the applause lines for Suw was when he said: "you can’t let your failures define you – you have to let them teach you. You have to let them show you what to do differently next time". Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures talks about he has learned this lesson in his own life. He talks about the hard lessons he learned in the dot.com crash. Often when we succeed, we don't take away lessons that help us repeat that success, but if we fail and learn, we can make sure that even if we fail again, it won't be for the same reasons.

Kevin: The latest elegy for free web hosting site GeoCities by Fred Wilson, with Flatiron Ventures. He shares his memoires and lessons learned. "I learned a lot from that deal. I learned that the Internet is all about people expressing themselves on pages they own and control. I learned that a business deal made over dinner and a handshake can turn into hundreds of millions of dollars, I learned that good partners are worth every penny of returns you give up to get them, and I learned that selling too soon is not too painful as long as you don't sell too much. And most of all I learned that you can make 100 times your investment every once in a while. And when you do, it's something special."

Kevin: Fred Wilson explains why Hulu, the digital video download service in the US, should embrace Boxee, free media centre software that runs easily on Linux, Macs and Apple TV. Wilson's Union Square Ventures is an investor in Boxee. It's interesting that Hulu, Boxee and Fred are having this discussion in the open. I tend to agree with Fred when he says, "Hulu users don't understand the distinction between watching Hulu through Firefox or Safari and wathicng Hulu through Boxee."
