Josh Kopelman is a venture capitalist at First Round Capital, he is considered one of the top venture capitalists around.
I know of Josh because he is from my area. One of the companies Josh co-founded was Half.com. But before Half.com he co-founded a Wayne, Pa based company called Infonautics. I remember trading the stock back in the day.
Infonautics has a bit of a tie to the domain industry in it’s how Tucows went public through a reverse merger.
Josh tweeted out on Saturday his receipt of purchasing Half.com back in 1999. The domain had dropped and Josh lucked out getting it for $35.
After selling Half.com to eBay, Josh remained with eBay for three years. In 2004, Josh co-founded TurnTide an anti-spam technology company that was acquired by Symantec.
