A few weeks ago, my partner in this blog posted a note about possible technology venture investing in Brazil. This is something I know something about since I was a graduate student at Stanford during 1997 to 2000 (roughly the top of the technology “bubble”). This is a topic you don’t really hear much about. Most of Brazilian business stories have something to do with the thesis, “Brazil has what China wants and is willing to sell it…” But, of course, I am sure that orkut is just as explosive in its growth as facebook and twitter. Here are links to a couple of blogs that I follow that might be helpful. These are among the most popular blogs in the technology category, judging by technorati.
Wired (link to story about Tech companies seeking biz in Syria)
VentureBeat (link to story about iPhone 4)
Official Google Blog
The Money Game (good general up to date biz blog)
NY Times DealBook
Personally, I use Google reader to subscribe to the feed of those blogs and scan for information while I am working.
It is also possible to use Google reader on my iPhone.
Finally, I also look at geopolitical issues which is an area of interest as a former Marine Officer, and a current money manager. For example, the following is a link to a news item about the US massing aircraft carriers off the coast of Iran, where Lula currently participated in some diplomacy.
