Unfortunately I had to miss what turned out to be an amazing party. I had to sneak-in one last camping getaway with the family before the end of summer. Laurence (Lo) Toney, VP Marketplace Operations, art.com, attended TechCrunch 7 and was gracious enough to provide us with his wrap-up report.

With an image like this, I guess it’s fair to summarize the following article in this way, “benchwarmers can not drive successful brands and businesses. And businesses who choose to sit on the sidelines can never win a game.”
Last Friday, I had the opportunity to hang with Stowe Boyd to discuss Web2.0 and his ideas around Advisory Capital.
After coffee at the nearby Starbucks, we cruised over to Notre Dame, where he presented these concepts to the SVASE organization.
Advisory Capital, per the man himself, is basically the idea of investing intellectual property as a means to help companies expedite their idea from concept to BETA without the typical Angel or seed funding associated with development.
