VCs Can't Keep the Lights On
I just got wind of a funny story in the LA Times earlier this week about power outages on Sand Hill Road. Apparently there have several major power failures in the last couple of months leading to confusion and lost data from unsaved documents. It makes me laugh that "captains of Silicon Valley," as the LA Times calls them, aren't tech savvy enough to have UPS, remote backup, and power generators in place. For folks who have been investing in IT for years and energy technology more recently, you wouldn't think they'd get caught with their pants down like this.
