Sand Hill Slave does not think much of the name of a leading Eph venture captital fund.

Village Ventures — Actually there is nothing wrong with this name, but… I think it would be great to compare all the partners’ investments and the partner who has the least successful deals to their name should bear the title,”The Village Idiot”. Now THAT would be funny.

Say what you will about Bo Peabody ’94, but he sold his chunk of Tripod-turned-into-Lycos at the peak of the bubble. Idiotic he was not.
