Angel Investor Chris Dixon on Startups & Why the VC Model Is Broken

GigaOM: "Chris Dixon is outspoken. He says difficult things. On his blog, Dixon writes about the technology industry’s taboos. “My blog is written from the perspective of the entrepreneur,” he says. “It was started as a VC countermeasure.” And when he’s really angry, his inner comic tweets gems such as: “Twitter is like a drunk guy with an uzi killing partners left and right. Expect investment in ecosystem to drop significantly.” So you might be thinking, just another blogging blowhard. No sir — Dixon is co-founder of a company called Hunch. He sold his previous startup, SiteAdvisor, to McAfee."
