Venture Capital In the Rockies Liveblogging

Comments (2)

The annual Venture Capital in the Rockies conference has been going on all day.  I’m taking a short 30 minute break to recharge my "extrovert battery" which is basically used up and about to flip into introvert mode (kind of like a hybrid car.)

The conference this year has been a blast and the Colorado weather gods have blessed us with two amazingly beautiful days.  Several folks, including David Cohen (TechStars CEO), Todd Vernon (Lijit CEO), and Dan Primack (PE Hub) are liveblogging the events.  Great stuff – including Dan’s analysis of the Best Conference Giftbag … Ever (and I’m sure he’s received a few.)

Congrats to Chris Onan (this year’s head organizer), all the folks involved in putting on VCIR, and all of the entrepreneurs who have come and participated.  What fun.

    Your reference to an “extrovert battery” reminded me of an intriguing concept from a personality psychology course I took. Professor Brian Little talked about the need for “restorative niches” for either introverts or extroverts and how important it is for one to have time to act in his/her nature after acting out of their nature. This article (by Prof. Little) explains the concept and its background in greater detail http://www.now.carleton.ca/2004-02/135.htm and may explain why you feel a bit like a hybrid car.
