Being right and wrong at the same time about Judy's Book

I received emails from 2 of my former investors this week.

Re: you were ahead of your time

It took Google a while but they finally built Judy’s Book.  At least the data side.

Chris sent me an article from Fox news speculating that Yelp had $30MM in revenue and might be valued at $500MM.  If you heard that sound -- it was me swallowing hard or saying WTF.

This start up stuff isn't for the faint of heart -- and it's an easy game to play in the rear view mirror. I'm going to sleep on this one and write about some new lessons learned -- they just keep coming !!
