MikeSpot

Spot-on founder Chris Nolan likes to smile and say “I don’t do that anymore” when she’s asked about goings-on in Silicon Valley.

Last night’s event in Palo Alto held by Silicon Valley’s No. 1 wiseacre, Mike Homer, now suffering from a lethal brain disease, is the rare exception. Any of you who have ever heard of a company called “Netscape” or made a buck off its products, might want to think about opening your wallet. Homer, one of Netscape’s founding executive team, is very ill and last night’s event was a fundraiser for research into the disease he has: Creutzfeldt-Jakob.

Former Wall Street Journal columnist Kara Swisher has more details, including video and address of various funds where donations can be sent so, with a heavy heart, that’s today’s HotSpot.
