Shervin has an amazing write-up on how Munchery is literally eating the world, and Sherpa’s continuing investment there. If you haven’t tried Munchery yet they’re now in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, and New York.
SmartThings announced (on their WP-powered blog) that they’re joining forces with Samsung to continue working on their mission of becoming an operating system for your home. I’m both an investor and a fan of the company, which I even let take over my home in SF earlier this year for CNN. As a tinkerer most of what I do with SmartThings so far is relatively basic, I feel like it’s still the very early days of the platform and what’s going to come down the line. Samsung makes so much technology (and appliances, and TVs, and…) I can’t wait to see how they open it up and connect. I also wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate other Audrey companies Divide which joined Google and Creative Market which joined Autodesk earlier in 2014. I wasn’t as good about blogging before and didn’t get a chance to publicly congratulate those teams.
It’s a week for coming out of stealth: Livestar, An App For Trusted Recommendations and much more just launched, (an Audrey company). Congrats to Fritz and the team!
