From VC 101 Wiki: 75 blog posts to read before talking to a VC.
Last night I spent three hours reading every word of ever post. Some were better than others but that's to be expected.
Of special note: Devin Thorpe (Mid-Market Maven) wrote three or more of the posts as I remember. Devin seems to be extremely well respected. I had to approach him a the last Funding Universe event with my tail between my legs since I stood him up for a breakfast . He was completely gracious though. So Devin, if you happen to stumble in here... sorry again.
