Weird Six Degrees feeling for me this morning seeing Brad Feld (Colorado) post on his blog about Josh Kopelman (Philadelphia). In the mid-90's I worked for the CTO of Infonautics - a company Josh Kopelman founded. Josh went on to start several other Internet companies, including Half.com, which was underway (albeit in stealth mode) when I left Infonautics in 1999 to start my company, Finali. Brad Feld was one of the VC investors in Finali. As a matter of fact, although we don't know each other well Josh and I exchanged a couple of emails when Finali and Half.com were founded within weeks of one another in 1999.
Weird to see your disconnected past come together like that. Six degrees? How about one?
