Kevin: An interesting counter-point to the Bubble 2.0 talk in terms of valuations of internet companies such as Facebook and Zynga. The Wall Street Journal Venture Capital Dispatch blog looks at their revenues compared to established internet players including Google, Yahoo and Amazon. Google is the only company with the kind of revenue growth that this new crop of companies are enjoying.

Kevin: An interesting story from Businessweek about the Summit, a coffee-house cum technology incubator in San Francisco.
"...what separates the Summit from being just another Wi-Fi boite is the dual-purpose nature of the 5,000-square-foot space. One floor above the Laptop Mafia, the cafe features a cluster of offices where groups of programmers and developers toil away in an effort to launch the next Twitter - or at least the next OkCupid."

Kevin: An interesting look at how Marc Andreesen, one of the founders of seminal browser Netscape, is looking to reinvent himself as part of Silicon Valley's venture capital elite. It's a fascinating look not only at Andreessen but also into the world of the Valley VCs.

Kevin: Mathew Ingram looks at investments in companies trying to build a business in the Twitter ecosystem. As Twitter itself seeks a business model, it's making it more difficult for other companies to build their businesses off of providing Twitter services. It's a fine line. Twitter wouldn't have experienced such growth if it hadn't been for the eco-system that developed around it, but Twitter also needs to find a sustainable business model or the heart of the eco-system will die.

Kevin: An interesting report from Patrick Smith of PaidContent (owned by my employer The Guardian) of a panel discussion about digital investment. Possibly the most scatching comment came from Xing.com founder Lars Hinrichs who said that the difference between US and European investors was stark. The US investors understood the business model immediately, but European investors lacked understanding of even the basics of the internet (and I'm putting it more diplomatically than Hinrichs). It's an interesting read, and I'm sure will provoke some strong reactions.
