This was a flattering piece in Crain's New York (subscription only) about the New York Angels, including me, but it said that I had been an early investor in Google. In fact, I had early stock, but through Kleiner Perkins and Angel Investors. I wish I had been that smart, but I'd prefer to correct the record. Here's what I wrote to the reporter:
"Thanks for the wonderful story!
"However, as I made clear [in an e-mail to which you replied], I did not invest in Google directly. It was probably an editor's attempt to make things short and punchy, but it ended up being inaccurate.
"It's not a big deal, but I would very much appreciate a brief correction of the facts, making it clear that I did not mislead you. Thank you!"
