While it sometimes seem like venture bloggers have become members of the opinion-making chattering class, the truth is that most people don’t care what venture capitalists have to say on blogs. It only seems that way because a disproportionate number of such folks are blogging, and have been blogging for some time.
The above said, I don’t disagree with the points made here by Andrew Watson though, and he does amble across a few of the issues I have raised about venture-bloggers in the past. The only thing I would add to Andrew’s list, and one I haven’t mentioned before, is that many venture capitalists are faintly rankled at not being at the center of the show, so blogging is way of saying “Me! Me! Me!”.
