we are taking you back to 2004.
We all know that the Internet and Web have changed a great deal in this past decade. When we launched w3w3.com in Jan 1999, we used to ‘brag’ about the fact people could listen to our material using a 28K modem. Businesses and leaders of business have changed a great deal too. The recording of Vinton Cerf, one of the fathers of the Internet, was at a press conference. His focus hasn’t changed but his career has. In Larry’s book, ‘Mastering Change in the midst of Chaos, Larry writes about some interesting comparisons between Alexander Graham Bell and Vinton Cerf.
Brad Feld is one of the most well-known Venture Capitalists as well as an author and one of the founders of the famous Tech Stars. When Larry and Pat first met Brad, he was a leader in Softbank Venture Capital. Today he is the founder and managing director of the Boulder based Foundry Group.
Art Rancis is a well-connected business leader, entrepreneur and is an international business consultant that really helps companies grow. Art is one of the featured dancers in the Boulder ‘Dancing with the Starts’ event on 10/18/12.
In April 2004 Pat and Larry attended an event hosted by DU, honoring H.E. President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame. There were hundreds of people in attendance with many heavy hitters. They also attended a private event at the Phipps Mansion where we interviewed Eugene Nyagahene, founder and CEO of Rwanda’s first radio station since 1994 and the genocide that the world turned its head away from.
