Hello world!

Like a crying newborn, cringing at first light and dripping in amniotic fluid, I enter the blogging world of Silicon Valley! With that out of the way, this blog is going to be about consumer internet, healthcare, and life at Stanford.

There is certainly no dearth of quality coverage and opinions on Web 2.0 (and to some degree healthcare). My perspective, however will be differentiated in a few ways:

  • From Stanford University: For the last 50 years, Stanford has been the epicenter of technology innovation. I want to give you the perspective from the center of the cauldron
  • As a "business guy": I come from a traditional old-school business background--I've never sat in bean bag chair during a meeting or played foosball in an office. A lot of the hype and activity that goes on around here simply does not stand to reason. I want to bring simple analysis to expose the frivolous fads and identify the areas of value.
  • As an MBA student: Some pretty interesting stuff goes down at the GSB (graduate school of business). Hopefully I can give you a window into this world.

As for my expectations about this blog, I'm a bit ambivalent. On one hand, I'd love to participate actively in the blogosphere and be a notable contributor/critic. On the other hand, I'm going to be seeking a job or venture funding the next year so I really can't go around being too controversial. We'll see what happens...
