Google Ventures Stresses Science of Deal, Not Art of the Deal

Since its founding in 2009, Google Ventures has stood out in an industry whose track record has trailed the stock markets at large.

Google Venture is doing something big and special, given their advantage of having the biggest data cloud in the world. If they don’t use it, and goes with their feelings about the right person, they will lose it eventually. But people are also important.

Now we see everything leading to the same direction, big data era. I wonder when Korean government or others build their own big data cloud, will it shake Google empire? Or it will simply base on Google data.

It’s hard to believe that we are only 6-7 years into the smartphone era. It feels like a distant memory when I couldn’t use my phone to find my way, check myself in, snap a photo, or tweet something to the world. My phone buzzes me when someone tags me or mentions me, when I should leave early…

Nice things, convenient.
