Possible Insight

Kevin Dick

I’m a geek.  I like math, technology, and puzzles.  So my natural inclination is usually to try and figure out why things are the way they are and then see if I can come up with a way of making them better.  I do tend to get bored easily, so I like to immerse myself in areas where there is a lot of cool technology to play with and a lot of interesting puzzles to solve.

I had a great time getting my undergraduate and graduate degrees at Stanford.  Thanks to a friend who started a software company while we were in school, I got pulled into the startup world within a year of graduation and never left.

I’ve started a couple of companies that made cool stuff I’m proud of.  One of them was even a very modest success.  I’ve also worked with many more as a consultant and thoroughly enjoy talking with fellow geeks about how their latest ideas will change the world. I co-founded Right Side Capital Management to make it easier, or at least less painful, for really young tech startups to get their first outside funding.

Along the way, I discovered that I enjoy speaking and writing.  I chaired a bunch of conferences, had a couple of magazine columns, and even wrote a book.  Now, blogging is my primary outlet for pontificating.  Occasionally, I think it may just clear the bar of possible insight.
