Mushroom Shelf Tutorial!

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. It is now time to trim your mushroom shelf. Done! Almost done! How Manhattan Nightlife Has Become Synonymous With Its Hotels. With or without an official nightclub, the experience that these hotels offer is essentially about human contact.

How Manhattan Nightlife Has Become Synonymous With Its Hotels

“It’s the single thing that can’t be duplicated on the Internet,” says MacPherson. “Social networking tries to, but it’s not the same thing. You can get your music, all your entertainment on the Net, but you cannot get lucky except in the flesh.” Ian Schrager is sitting at a huge wooden conference table in his office in the West Village, surrounded by piles of tear sheets from magazines: bits of design inspiration. It has been 25 years since he kicked off the whole hip-boutique-nightlife-hotel phenomenon. All of the other hoteliers tip their hats to Schrager for pulling hotels out of those beige, boxy doldrums. But Schrager is now rejecting the very aesthetic he created. What’s Really Going on in the VC Industry? What Does it Mean for Startups? Lots of discussion these days about the changes in the VC industry.

What’s Really Going on in the VC Industry? What Does it Mean for Startups?

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.

Strobist teaches you how to be a good photographer. The project of a former photojournalist, Strobist explains techniques beyond point and shoot, with an emphasis on lighting on the cheap. Think cinematic-type images on a film-school budget. Even if you're loath to venture beyond taking pictures on your phone, the blog's collection of photographs is fun to flip through. New Media Business Models. [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.

[Updated] The Coming Super-Seed Crash

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. Valuations are escalating as super-seeding angels compete against one another, while fourth-quartile incumbent VCs jack prices to buy deals through dint of having more money to put to work. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the super-seed model is all wrong. Related posts:
