Two friends who I met when they were young punks are now taking the next steps in their professional careers. Steve Jang and Kanqi Maqubela raised $56 million for their early-stage fund. I have watched their progress for a while, and I am glad this news is finally in public. I absolutely love these two cats, both of whom are just great and decent human beings.
Eons ago, Jason Calacanis (someone I have known since we were both quite trim) invited me to his podcast. Last week, he celebrated 1,000 episodes. Congratulations, Jason, for being so consistent and not giving up on podcasting, even when it was unfashionable!
It is always fun to learn that your friends are doing well.
