Power To The People

The last paragraph of the New York Times story on our firm today was about places we are looking for new investments:

The partners said they planned to look at how Web services might transform sectors not yet touched in a big way, like education and the environment.

"We have only begun to investigate the impact of information technology on behaviors, habits, needs. We believe it can be profound", Mr. Burnham said.

Coincidentally, my partner Albert posted on that exact subject today on the Union Square Ventures blog, in a post called "Power To The People". It’s a great follow-on to the New York Times piece.
