A Blast From The Past Quiz
Brad Feld posted a picture of him and a friend at MIT when he was 19 on his blog last week along with a quiz question. The minute I saw that photo, I thought "I should post the picture of us from Harvard Square in 1996." So here it is:
So here’s the quiz. Name all six people in this photo. Hint: Five are active VCs and one is a retired VC.
The one rule is that nobody in the photo can participate in the quiz.
Extra credit – who is on the cover of Business Week in the magazine stand we are all standing next to?
Masayoshi Son is on the cover of the magazine.I have no idea who the VCs are, unfortunately.
You got the extra credit!
Brad Feld, Fred Wilson, Gary Rieschel, Charley Lax, Jerry Colonna, and maybe Rich Levendov?
correct except you mispelled Rich’s last nameit’s levandovotherwise you got it right, but given that you are married to one of the people in the picture, i disqualify you 🙂
charlie lax, brad feld, jerry colonna, rich levandov, you and gary rieschel
i am suspicious of this comment because I can’t remember the last time the real gothamgal commented on this blogbut either way, you are disqualified for the same reason as above or for impersonating my wife 🙂
I’m just digging your hair style. 😉
you are disqualified for bringing that up!
Notice that I was hiding my fat body behind Brad and Charley.
fred, very 90210! Murdoch or buffett on the cover ?
LOL at the identity of the two winners 🙂
Love the hair Fred. Had that style myself many moons ago.
In 1996 I was 9 years old…and had the same hairstyle. At least one of us was cool.
Both winners were disqualified. Easy win. ;)Here is my answer: Charlie Lax, Brad Feld, Jerry Colonna, Rich Levandov, Fred Wilson and Gary Rieschel
You win Cory!
Is that an undercut?!
Look at all of those – ah – young men with decidedly non-grey hair (I don’t think that’s grey on Rich – just glare from Son’s magazine cover.)
I thought it was glare from Charley’s head.
Imagine if a car had crashed into that news stand… Imagine all the companies built for long term success without short-sighted money men pushing them toward liquidation events…
The right side of those stands are filled with porn…interesting where all you guys were standing
Am I too late? Starting from the left …Phil Mickelson, Fred Wilson, McSteemy from Gray’s Anatomy, not sure, not sure, Ron Jeremy!
The Ron Jeremy line is priceless
I resemble that remark!!!!
and to think how much i looked up to all you guys back then.;)
That’s not exactly my memoryIn fact I think you laughed at us when we asked you to pick up our legalfees
:-)i know i’m hopelessly sentimental but i cannot believe 1996 was 12 years ago.
My youngest, josh, was born that year and he’s taller than the gotham gal now
OMG Brad is wearing MC Hammer pants…I’ve toured around the world, from London to the Bay It’s “Hammer, go Hammer, MC Hammer, yo Hammer” And the rest can go and playYou can’t touch this
