There seems to be a lot of movement this January. This past week, I learned of a buddy joining buySAFE (a solution for safer online commerce transactions), another friend joining Square Loop (an early-stage location-based wireless play), another friend joining MPowerPlayer (a nascent online gaming technology for product portability), and the soon-to-be announced launch of BRC (a new global tech fund, abbreviated for now). And, I'm going to be spending much more time in New York as well, an exciting development. More to come later. So it goes.
