I've been investing in and advising early stage companies. I work with teams on products that improve human expression, awareness and interaction. Here are a few examples:
Thington, co-founded by former Dopplr CTO Matt Biddulph and designer Tom Coates, is building a better user interface and service layer for the Internet of Things. I was the first investor in Thington, and am very happy to have been joined by Ray Ozzie, Eric Wahlforss, Steward Butterfield and Joi Ito among others.
Luup is a beautiful new take on mobile video. What Instagram did for photos - making everyone a better photographer - Luup is doing for video...with the power of music. I was the first investor in Luup and have been joined by Taavet Hinrikus and Indrek Kasela among others. Luup is launching during the summer 2015.
