    Internet Entrepreneur and Investor

    In 2001, I co-founded Sedo.com, the world's largest domain market place. Since selling the company, I am active as an Entrepreneur and/or Investor in various start-ups, like Eyeo (makers of Adblock Plus), Ecosia, Vire, Hitfox, BasicThinking, Aklamio, Miomente, PiwikPro, Home, Convida, Joblift and others. Mostly Internet stuff (especially online marketing and market places), except one - next burrito is on me for the one who clicks through all the links here and emails me which one it is.

    By Tim Schumacher  (@TimSchu) For a while now, I have been using a tool called Mattermark.com for research (unfortunately it's quite an expensive subscription, but there's a great free trial I can recommend to anyone). Mattermark basically collects information of all sorts (social presence, web...
    The recent discussion about video-streaming platform Meerkat (well summarized here) shows that history repeats itself over and over again: companies built on open systems - aka the Internet itself - might grow a little slower, but are much more resilient than companies built completely on other...
