Everyone that knew Harry Weller became better off simply by hearing his wisdom and insights flow. Words cannot describe the loss that the venture capital community and entrepreneurship at large have experienced by the passing of Harry. Our condolences and love to his family and dearest friends.

Jonathon, Carla, Terry, Heather, et all,

Thank you very much for an amazing event. DI was really spectacular, and to be honest, I actually think it was the most valuable event I've been to so far (and that includes a number in the Valley). The other companies were also very hard-core and it was some very very serious competition.

The last few days we've been snowed under a shower of phone-calls and emails from investors, customers, potential employees, and press. We will get all the info back to you shortly and I look forward to catching up when you guys get back.

Major kudos for pulling off something amazing, and thank you for letting us be a part of it!

Best,
Anton
