This gave me chills:

Quote
Definitely not for the faint of heart, those skilled and experienced venture capitalists entering the arena will be playing with fire. This is not a game of targeting an app and throwing seed money at developers located in Silicon Valley or Silicon Alley. Nor is it like catching the social media wave or jumping on the mobile payments bandwagon.

Bitcoin is the quintessential disruptor for not only does it disrupt established primary-level players in the field of payments, like VISA, Mastercard, and PayPal, but it disrupts the very nature of monetary authority.  Bitcoin is disruption within supreme disruption.

Matonis! Smiley Mind doing a Q&A session sometime? Would love to see an IAMA with you over at reddit.

A few quick questions, if you have the time:

  • Are you a salaried journalist at Forbes, or is it more like they host your blog?
  • Would you still be doing this awesome work if Forbes wasn't interested in hosting it?
  • You were previously the CEO of Hushmail, are you eager to plunge back into the business world?
  • Is this your way of doing research before jumping into the business side of things?
  • What do you do outside of covering e-currency and Bitcoin?

Oh, and thanks for your always passionate, intelligent and interesting write-ups!

Cheers,
-elux

Bump because we need to tilt more undecided, dithering VC's to our side of the Bitcon fence.
