Inauguration Day

We actually watched the inauguration of Obama with Ann Winblad, the venture capitalist. After the inauguration we talked with Ann, who funded our professors start-up company. She talked about what it is like to be a venture capitalist and what they look for when interviewing start-ups. Most people in silicon valley have the same opinion --> a recession is the best time to start a company. Although I'm not planning on starting a company in the near future, I learned alot about how to start a company if I am ever in that position.

After our visit with Hummer Winblad, it was time to visit an actual startup...Revision 3. It was interesting to see the set and get a tour of the studio. Plus, we got to meet the founder! Then we met Dave Mathews, the creator of Boxee.
