    Evolution – Thanks for your enthusiasm for the ValleyZen video series and for featuring it in your blog. We’re exited by the responses.

    Excellent to have a visit to ValleyZen from the “NERFPRO” himself. Most can only dream of sporting such a prestigious title:) Gracious of you to share your machineNerf techniques honed over many years and based on experience from the Nerf Battlefields of Silicon Valley.

    Everyday at DFJ is filled with suspense, slow-mo and excitement, right? :)

    Dear Drue and Bill,Thanks for using the interview to share Bill’s relceftions and insights. Though it is clear that several of them are coming from the intersection between Bill’s professional experiences in the Valley as a lawyer, some of the elements presented keep resonating deeply in my own experience:-Zen and innovation as a strong source to chose things I want to be involved with-Natural unforced call to collaboration and commonality, which become force-Pulling together as a way to overcome divisivenessA couple of days ago it happened I went to listen to Buena Vista Social Club, who were visiting Oxford. As soon as we began to listen the music from Cachaito Lf3pez, Guajiro Mirabal and all other ‘virtuosos’ of Afro-Caribbean music, your interview Bill came to mind: the idea of you as a ‘virtuoso’ sharing your music and inspiration and instruments. Thanks for the concert,Costa
