Have You Been Pizzled or Kizzled?

Filed under: Uncategorized — sphere @ 3:58 pm

Jon Callaghan, Co-Founder of True Ventures, wrote a funny post about being “pizzled” – as Jon writes “this is the feeling you get when someone you’re talking with is Blackberry obsessed. It’s a combination of being puzzled at why, at that particular instant, someone decided to interrupt an otherwise good conversation with a glance at his/her Blackberry and being pissed that he/she did so.” I’m a Venture Partner at True and we’ve solved this problem in a sophisticated way – yes that is my little baby on top of the pile, symbolically left at the door.


Sphere’s team is located all over the globe (Berlin, Vancouver, New York, Seattle, Denver, San Francisco, Phoenix, Boston) making us a so-called “virtual” company. We rarely see each other, so “pizzled” doesn’t really apply to us. We have a different yet quite similar challenge called “kizzled”. That is the moment in a team call when you hear someone pounding away on their keyboard. Worse yet, sometimes you actually get an email in your in-box during the call from someone on the call that has nothing to do with the call. Hmmm. What to do – :).
