About 6 months ago, Tynt, the company I've spent the last 2.5 years with, was acquired by 33Across. We built a great network of publishers at Tynt. And that network continues to grow under 33Across. I'm excited for the 33Across team because I think they are at the intersection of two compelling trends: social media and online advertising. I look forward to tracking their continued success.
The acquisition brought with it a lot of inbound interest from other start-ups wondering if I was available. But it wasn't until the last few weeks that I started to consider the many interesting opportunities out there.
I talked with some great early-stage companies that I think are on to some great ideas. But the team, the traction, the latest release, and strategy at Disqus really impressed me. And it helped that I was already an active user and have known some of the guys there for a few years.
Thank you Ro and Daniel for reaching out and giving me this opportunity. I can't wait to get started! Speaking of thanks...
Fred Wilson had a great blog post earlier today that compelled me to thank him for his support...and clue a few of that community's members into this news.
