West Coast Wakes Up

We roll a little later in the day here than most — it’s a left coast type of thing. But coverage of Reactivity & Cisco is starting to pick up, like this this incredibly mistitled post about Cisco buying another Web 2.0 firm. Reactivity is most definitely not that.

But anyhoo. One of the things Matt points out is that Accel Partners, and Peter Fenton in particular, really stuck it out with Reactivity through some grim times. Peter supported us when it was clearly personally uncomfortable for him, and I’m really happy for this outcome for him. VCs often get (much deserved) criticism for short term actions, but I always found Accel and Peter to be longer term thinkers than that, and supportive over the long haul. Pete’s at Benchmark now, but remains one of my favorite VCs.
