Coinbase Backer Parlays ‘Fantasy’ Bet Into $4.6 Billion

(Bloomberg) — Before his bet on cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase Global Inc. became a multi-billion-dollar exit, Union Square Ventures co-founder Fred Wilson compared Bitcoin to science fiction.“We may be completely wrong, it may be a fantasy,” he said at a marketing conference in May 2013. That was shortly after he had invested $2.5 million in Coinbase, the U.S.’s biggest cryptocurrency exchange, where people can buy and sell Bitcoin and other digital tokens such as Ethereum and Litecoin. “It’s straight out of a sci-fi novel, but sci-fi novels are the best things you can read if you want to invest,” Wilson said. “It’s a gut bet.”Eight years later, Wilson’s wager became Union Square’s most profitable exit. Earlier this month, Coinbase listed on Nasdaq and soared to $328.28 a share, catapulting the company’s valuation on a fully diluted basis to about $86 billion. That’s

What Happened To The Ramsey House? It Was On The Market For Years

Posted on

Two decades have come and gone since JonBenét Ramsey’s mysterious murder shook the nation. But the Boulder, Colorado house where her body was tragically discovered continues to fascinate the public with its hauntingly dark past. So, what happened to the Ramsey house? After the 6-year-old beauty queen was found bludgeoned and strangled to death in the basement of the five-bedroom house, the family reportedly never spent another night in the home and another family moved in.

In 2004, the Ramsey’s home was bought by the daughter of televangelist Robert Schuller, Carol Schuller Milner, and her husband Tim Milner. The couple, who had four children when they moved into the home, tried selling the home numerous times — which was the center of the infamous crime scene and long investigations that ultimately resulted in no convictions — but did not have much luck in the past eight years, with the most

Legendary Charlie Trotter’s sous chef Reggie Watkins, ‘backbone’ of kitchen for 25 years, dies at 64

Posted on

For 25 years, Reginald Watkins was the backbone of one of the most famous kitchens in the world, the acclaimed Charlie Trotter’s in Lincoln Park. While a stunning roster of chefs passed through the restaurant throughout the years, Watkins remained a constant, working as the primary sous chef — and kitchen confidante for owner Charlie Trotter — until he left the restaurant in 2011, a year before it closed for good.

Ruth Bancroft Garden Honors Curator’s 40 Years Of Service

Posted on

WALNUT CREEK, CA — Forty years into his dream job, Ruth Bancroft Garden & Nursery curator Brian Kemble is never entirely alone in his head as he goes about planting, hybridizing, photographing, documenting and building databases. He is still channeling, on a daily basis, the lovely, cactus-crazed lady who inspired, then hired him, back in 1980.

Kemble, 75, is the designated keeper of the flame lit by the late Ruth Bancroft, who over the course of decades turned her 3.5-acre plot of land in Walnut Creek into a world-renowned showcase for the variety, hardiness and beauty of ornamental, drought-tolerant plants.

A couple of weeks ago, Kemble’s colleagues at the garden surprised him by drilling a plaque in his honor into a large boulder on the premises. He can’t tell you what it says, exactly, because he hasn’t actually read it yet. But he was both thrilled and, yet again, a

Tim Griffin to Depart The Kitchen After Nine Years as Director

Posted on

Tim Griffin is leaving The Kitchen after nearly a decade as the director and chief curator of the experimental New York art space. During his tenure, Griffin continued and expanded the storied institution’s focus on interdisciplinarity and oversaw a program featuring Chantal Akerman, ANOHNI, Charles Atlas, Gretchen Bender, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Ralph Lemon, Aki Sasamoto, and Tyshawn Sorey, among others. His term also led to new initiatives including the hybrid talks series “The Kitchen L.A.B.” and electronic music series “Synth Nights.” Griffin—who began helming the nonprofit in 2011 after a seven-year run as the editor-in-chief of Artforum, where he is currently a contributing editor—will shift into an advisory role at The Kitchen by year’s end; he has accepted a visiting professorship in the art history and English departments at Ohio State University in Columbus, where his wife, Johanna Burton, directs The Wexner Center for the Arts.

Home Improvement Was Tim Allen's First Acting Gig

The 90’s were a special time in the pop culture zeitgeist. The music was amazing, movies were box-office hits and TV was in its prime.

Had you been an avid TV watcher back in the 90’s, odds are you watched the classics like “Seinfeld,” “Friends,” and “Frasier.” Another show that became a 90’s classic was Tim Allen’s “Home Improvement.”

ABC’s “Home Improvement” centered around Tim “The Toolman Taylor,” the host of home-improvement TV show “Tool Time.” Tim had to balance his life as a TV show host, along with being a family man back home with his wife Jill and three mischievous boys.

We all remember Tim, his “Tool Time” partner Al (Richard Karn) and his hilarious and genius neighbor Wilson (Earl Hindman), whom we just remember as a set of eyes with
