Meet with VC again

This is the Day One that I start to write the blog in English. I will go to HongKong next Monday for my Communication Master studies. It will be a totally English circumstance. I do not use English for a long time. Now I shall practice it. Writing English blog is a quite good way for me, I think.

21 clock, yesterday, Hengge called me. We should meet with VC again from 22 clock. The meeting has not been ended until 4 clock this morning. The first two hours, I think, is very valuable for me. However, other hours, were just wasting time.

What is the key difference between web 1.0 and web 2.0? I have an answer because of this meeting. The website in web 1.0 focused on the pageview, but, the website in web 2.0 focused on the users, or, the heavy users.

How let a browser becomes a registered user

How let a registered user becomes a heavy user

Why the people will be your heavy users, not others’

What is the true value for the BSP

What is the core competition power of Blogbus.com

I have the answers.

VC, maybe is an angel, maybe is just a monster, depending on your view.

VC

刘韧在他的BLOG上说:再也不见VC。这和人的价值观有关。DONEWS靠着很多年的积累,已经形成了足以养活自己的基础。在解决了生存问题之后,DONEWS选择了不紧不慢的发展步伐。这一点,从和keso的对话中可以看出来,keso对于任何一个开发项目的忠告是:先想一想自己能承受吗?

DONEWS可以不见VC,但BLOGBUS该拜会还是要拜会一下的。于是我们拜会了VC。

说实话,我一开始对这位VC很不感冒。因为他在公然宣称“我从来不写BLOG,也不知道BLOG是什么玩意儿”之后,不断地向我们提出各种各样甚至可以说是极尽刁难之能事的问题。我甚至感觉到,和这位VC解释一些问题,就象和白痴解释地球为什么是绕太阳转那么困难。在当时的那十分钟之内,我的脑海中无数次闪现过刘韧的豪言壮语“再也不见VC”。

接下来,我的态度有了一个180度的大转弯。因为横戈在向这位VC解释BLOG的时候,他很不客气地打断老横,说:“你必需在3分钟之内说明白这件事,并且要告诉我,这个BLOG有何价值。”

横戈看了看他。

然后这位VC说,如果是他的话,一分钟就可以说明白了。

老横同志不再横了,我很好奇地看着这位自称从来不写BLOG的家伙如何在一分钟之内能够解释明白。

事实上,他做到了!

原话我不再恭录了。我只是觉得,这个家伙居然能够说得那么明白,那么透彻。虽然话语间充满着高人一等的感觉,但揭开这层无谓的面子,说真的,我打心眼里佩服这个小眼睛的家伙。(小眼睛的人一般都很聪明,例如我,^_^)

他继续说着,前后花了六分钟,其实已经不再是解释BLOG了,而是解释了BLOGBUS.com作为一个商业公司的远景、任务、阶段目标、做事方法以及林林种种的商务模式。这时候我的脑海里不再不断浮现不见VC的话语,取而代之的是“三人行,必有我师”

毕竟他是做VC的,毕竟他见过了大大小小成千上百的与BLOGBUS类似的公司,毕竟他投资过成功过失败过N个创业公司。就算没有吃过猪肉,也是见过很多猪跑的。经验,这点经验,包括说话的方式,逻辑的推演,是值得学习的。

VC就是VC,他是给你钱的,那副嘴脸恐怕很难会很好看,即使我们已经和这家VC混得很熟了。但那副嘴脸背后的东西,我想,无论是融资成功还是失败,都未尝不是一道还是很值得去看看并且学习的“风景线”。
