VC Cliché of the Week

I am getting ready for a board call this morning.  I hate board calls.  I want face time not air time.

It’s just too tempting to do other things when you are on a call, like talking to colleagues when the call is on mute, email, web surfing, even blogging.  I doubt I get even half of the value of a meeting when its done over the phone.

I realize that there are times when you have to do a meeting over the phone and I am doing it today, but it just sucks.

Face time is what I want.
