re: Airgo Raises Another $20M Does anybody really know what's going on inside Airgo? What exactly are they building? Any spies want to speak up? Nice piece of writing, Mr. Matsumoto - but I grabbed all the same info off their website...

Some of the things that caught my eye from their press releases:
"dramatically improves the speed, range,
and reliability"
"is years ahead of the competition"
"will cause a sea change in the WLAN
"competitors, both large and small, don't
have the capability to duplicate"
"at least several years ahead of the curve"

Now I know VCs pretty well, and although they like to prop up their portfolio companies with flowery verb'age, they are usually VERY hesitant to throw out comments like the ones above. And those are quotes!

Normally you hear 6 months, maybe a year ahead of the market... But "several years"!?!?! Somebody smart tell me what technology advance could excite a conservative VC to say that?

I think Airgo is going to suprise EVERYBODY with their technology - including the new switch guys who aren't even shipping product yet...

One other question - I heard an unsubstantiated rumor that Cisco was an early investor? True? Somebody please confirm either way... Thanks.

re: Airgo Raises Another $20M Yep, that's what I heard, I believe the CEO wants one million dollars [insert evil laugh].

Seriously, if you can the thesis he worked on at Stanford I believe that contains your answer.

I was told the local wildlife look slightly nervous and glow in the dark. Amazing things can done with good RF skills eh ?

Then again my friend maybe slightly touched...
