On the Road: Back from My Mini-Book Tour

May 8, 2008

Hey folks. Sorry for not posting the last few days but I’ve been on a cross-country whirlwind tour promoting my book and speaking about it.

The trip began at the Nantucket Conference on May 2-3, where I was invited to sit for a fireside chat about my book with the entrepreneur/venture capitalist/all-around cool guy Vinit Nijhawan.

This week, I took off for Northern California. On Monday, I was invited to speak on a panel about book writing at the Graduate School of Journalism at UC-Berkeley. Afterwards, Matt Richtel of the New York Times and Marcia Parker, who co-teach a course called “Covering Silicon Valley, invited me as a guest teacher. And then on Wednesday I moderated a panel at the National Venture Capital Association conference on corporate venture capital. It was a great session with Arvind Sodhani, the President of Intel Capital, and Steven Weinstein, who heads up venture at the biotech giant Novartis.

I will be publishing a few posts about these events over the next few days.
