I love Mondays and Valley Zen’s interviews with VC, Tim Draper, are definitely one of the reasons why. If you haven’t checked out Drue Kataoka and Bill Fenwick’s new blog yet, you definitely should.
Drue is a Master Sumi-e artist and her insights into life in Silicon Valley are unique, as she uses her Zen perspective to examine the intersection between art and technology. The interviews with Tim Draper are irreverent and humourous, but also provide some important lessons, not only for entrepreneurship but also for life.
This week’s episode is here, where Tim talks about the highs and lows of entrepreneurship, and we see Drue checking out art in the men’s bathroom. 🙂
The first and second episodes are here, in case you missed them the first time around. I’m really looking forward to next week’s episode, where we see Tim doing a Samurai flip! 😉
You should also check out Drue’s interview with Guy Kawasaki right before the launch of Alltop.
Also, whilst I’m on the subject of Samurai and Alltop, you should check out Guy’s story over on Podtech about the analogy of the old Samurai (Guy) and the young Samurai (Jeremiah Owyang). 😉
