Back on October 11, 2007, I wrote that Lee Lorenzen was nuts. Back then he said that Facebook was worth $100 billion. He’s getting more and more right every day and I’m getting more and more wrong. Especially after Goldman Sachs just kicked in $500 million and valued the company at $50 billion. I told … Continue reading “I was wrong about Facebook's valuation. Way wrong. Lee Lorenzen was right.

APIs are programming interfaces that sit underneath the apps that we all use, and savvy companies are beginning to recognize that they can be … Continue reading “The API company: Mashery”
Jorge Lorenzo is on top of the world right now. He’s a 23-year-old motorbike racer from Mallorca in Spain and is atop the standings in the MotoGP circuit (he won yesterday’s race in Laguna Seca by several seconds, too). But he has a problem. Teammate Valentino Rossi has a better brand. Mostly because Rossi is … Continue reading “Does adding Twitter to a brand make it cooler?”
