Bay Area Bubble Blowers

According to Silicon Beat, Vizu, a San Francisco-based start-up that does interactive Web-based polling, has raised $1 million in a first round of funding.

John Keehler of Random Culture says, “When a company that produces web-based polls can get 1 million in funding, we’re in a bubble.”
That may be, or the people at Vizu may simply be well connected. After all, the world of venture capital isn’t exactly a meritocracy (contradictory as that may seem).

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. After working for seven agencies in five states and freelancing for several more, I ventured out on my own in 2009. Today, as head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon, I'm focused on providing effective integrated marketing solutions to mid-market clients.
