Keshava left this comment to my VC Cliche of the Week post yesterday on getting "ahead of the curve":
So where do you look to get inspiration to stay ahead of the curve?
Well this blog is a big part of that as are other blogs, delicious tags, and a host of other resources on the web. I just wrote a post on the Union Square Ventures weblog about the process of looking ahead and how we plan to be as open about it as we know how in the hopes that we'll get a lot back from all of you.
In other words, the best way to look ahead is to do it collaboratively with the community.
