For those of you who have been keeping up with this blog, you’ll know that my partner Ben Horowitz has been very actively blogging—and folks are paying attention. His post on All Things Digital called The Case for the Fat Startup struck a nerve in the startup community, prompting my good friend Fred Wilson to write a counter-post called Being Fat is Not Healthy, in turn prompting Ben to write a counter-counter-post defiantly titled Revenge of the Fat Guy.
Now for those of you who clicked on the last link, see what happened there? Yes, astute reader: Ben has his own blog now. Go, subscribe, and prepare for a slew of insightful and provocative posts from Ben on leadership, entrepreneurship, venture capital, and much, much more. Also lots of quotes from rappers.
Case in point: Ben’s first post on his own blog demystifies super-angel investor Ron Conway and features lyrics from The Game. Find out why the savviest entrepreneurs trip over themselves to raise money from Ron.
