Jeff, I'm so glad to see you return to your blog! I've missed your posts.

Also, I wanted to say that one of the most striking things about you is how much you obviously treasure your wife and the partnership you have with her. I don't think we've ever spoken about her in our too-rare face to face chats, but it shines through so brightly from online observation. It's wonderful that you two are providing such an incredibly positive example to your children of what a good relationship looks like, and how it works. Too few kids get that, and yours are amongst the luckiest. No matter what you achieve in business, no matter how mad your VC skillz are, the job you are doing in raising your children is the most noble work on the planet. It's a pleasure to watch from afar.


Jeff: all the best for the next 40 years, and congrats for your last exit.
very best regards.

Hey Jeff, already 40?? You are joking, eheheh :-) I wish you all the best privately and professionally, a lot of fun and exciting deals, some good and bad exits (just to remember you from time to time that investing is linked with risk :-), and further on a good time in the Silicon Valley to spread our marvelous French wines and evangelize a bit our US friends also in this field.
Take care, Didier


ha ouais 40....qd même :)....Joyeux Anniversaire et à bientôt !

Joyeux Anniversaire Jeff! Most people realise at 40 that they are no longer bullet proof, but you sound like French wine, you might well be entering your best vintages from page 40 on! En tout cas, c'est ce que je te souhaite. Bises a Bernadette!

Joyeux Anniversaire
(tres en retard)

You are so much younger than me.
In the past year, I have been musing on passing the 50 year post.
I have even offered a panel for South by Southwest Interactive titled 'Just Over 50 and Not Dead Yet'.

Have a great week-end

I hope we have a chance to meet soon.
