I wanted to take a moment today to tell you about Dan Rua’s Florida venture capital blog. Now, I know, I’ve just said venture capital and you’re probably thinking that the blog is all about business and finance. While that certainly is part of what this blog is about, that’s certainly not all.
Dan is a managing partner of Inflexion Partners, and being in the business of venture capital he does talk about some very interesting technology startups from time to time on his blog. If you have an interest in the internet, technology, social media, cool new companies and gadgets then I’m sure that you will enjoy reading about these things on Dans blog.
I really enjoy Dans writing style. I’d been to his blog from time to time over the last 8 months or so, but over the last few days I’ve taken the time to read pretty much all of the posts that he’s written so far this year. His writing style is engaging, and you can tell that he’s quite passionate about Florida, the Florida Gators, Innovative technology that’s developed in Florida and elsewhere, entrepreneurs and enjoys what he gets out of life.
When I read a post like the one he wrote as a recap for the Florida Venture Capital conference I begin to wonder if I’m in the wrong field. He traveled to Boca Raton, stayed in a luxurious resort, got to play golf on a fantastic golf course, had a nice dinner, wine and gambled on a yacht, and of course learned about some new, interesting, and up and coming businesses.
I do hope that you like Dan’s blog as much as I do. If you do I know he’d appreciate it if you’d subscribe to his RSS feed, or his newsletter.
I’ve actually signed up for his newsletter. I signed up because I like his blog and I’d like to be updated about his latest posts or whatever else he might choose to discuss in his newsletter. I’m not sure how often his newsletter comes out, but I suspect it’s once a week or less.
The other reason I signed up for his newsletter is because I have also created an account with the same newsletter program – Z0okoda – that’s he’s using and I haven’t taken the time to set up my newsletter yet. I’d love to see what he does with his newsletter, maybe I’ll steal an idea or two.
As I said, I really enjoy his writing style so I’m sure his newsletter will be both informative and entertaining.
Visit Dan’s blog and play the games. Maybe you’ll get an idea and end up making a game of your own too! While your there spend a bit of time reading the posts. I hope you’ll find that this is a blog worth reading and take the time to subscribe to the newsletter.
