For 2009, MSP Films takes an original look at the sport of skiing. All of the skiers in the film--park rat or big mountain charger--share a common bond: the overwhelming desires to ski. Each person finds stoke in his own unique way, whether it be a double cork 1260, a deep turn on a storm day or ripping a giant AK line. Skiing is an incredibly diverse sport that offers it all.

Boot Camp Digital helps small and large companies dive into Web 2.0 Boot Camp Digital founder Krista Neher came to Cincinnati from Toronto in 2005 after being transferred here by Procter & Gamble for her finance and marketing job. A few years later, she left the company to become VP of Marketing for local internet startup Photrade.com. That company was eventually sold and Neher lost her job, leaving her unsure about what she wanted to pursue. "After the company was sold I didn't know what I wanted to do next.

In the meantime Neher devoted her time blogging about a new passion: social media on The Marketess.

Mushroom Shelf Tutorial! I'm ever so sorry for putting this tutorial off for so long! Alas, I was nudged into action by a reader who had been patiently waiting for this since my first mushroom shelf post back in December (yikes! I'm so sorry!) Please accept my most sincere apologies and lets do just jump right into this! One's active participation in this tutorial is rather dependent on access to suitable mushroom specimens, and while I regret that I'm unable to offer any specific advice on where to go looking, do just keep a keen eye in the trees (up and down the trunks, specifically) the next time you are out on a ramble through a forested area, and your diligence may well be rewarded. The correct sort of mushroom (there are actually a handful of different varieties that work) is typically espied growing from the trunks of trees that appear ill of health, or perhaps even dead, however there are never any guarantees of finding the mushrooms.

What’s Really Going on in the VC Industry? What Does it Mean for Startups? | Both Sides of the Table Lots of discussion these days about the changes in the VC industry. Here’s my take: 1. The VC industry grew dramatically as a result of the Internet bubble - Before the Internet bubble the people who invested in VC funds (called LPs or Limited Partners) put about $50 billion into the industry and by 2001 this had grown precipitously to around $250 billion. 2. But VC is an “illiquid asset” so funds didn’t disappear quickly - In 2000/01 the stock market quickly adjusted punishing investors in the NASDAQ and in individual public technology stocks.

[Updated] The Coming Super-Seed Crash Unnoticed by almost no-one, the startup financing landscape has been transformed: a combination of ease of entry, lower capital requirements, failing incumbent venture capital (VC) firms, and general fervor has driven the emergence of a host of new “super-seed” firms. These small-ish outfits — usually running less than $20m — specialize in seeding a bazillion companies, following on in very few, and generally trying to be fast-moving and networked. Now, however, the super-seed crash is coming. We have silly numbers of companies being seeded — I had someone at a well-known, larger venture fund tell me yesterday in San Francisco that they were seeing dozens of Series A-seeking newly angel-funded companies a week.
