Venture Capital Gadfly Adeo Ressi

Here’s a link to the “Show Me the Money Men,” a profile I wrote about founder Adeo Ressi in this week’s issue of BusinessWeek. I got to know Ressi over the last month or so and he’s a really smart, funny and provocative guy. Although “visionary” is one of the more over-used words in technology, I would go so far as to say that Ressi is a visionary of sorts., a Web site that lets entrepreneurs to anonymously rank, review and comment on venture capitalists, illustrates a vision of creating a more transparent and smoothly functioning VC industry. Ressi’s vision, though, is even more apparent with his latest entrepreneurial venture, which is revealed in this story. Ressi is setting up a Web site that will allow people to contribute ideas and plans for building more sustainable urban developments. He hopes one day to use the contributions to build what he calls the City of the Future. Check out this sidebar to main story, “It Takes a Wiki to Raise a Village,” that explains Ressi’s idea to create a Wikipedia-like site for planning and building a new urban utopia.

Later today I will post a short interview with Ressi. So come back and check it out. Ressi always has something interesting to say.

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
