The Blog

j² (or j-squared) is written by Jerry Chacon on an Apple MacBook Pro. The nickname of the blog — j² — is explained here. Fundamentally, this blog seeks to accomplish no goals in particular and I very much hope to keep it that way.

The Site

j² uses WordPress.

The domain is registered with GoDaddy (quite a good group) and hosted at the rock solid MediaTemple. I can highly recommend both companies.

The Man

Jerry Chacon is lucky enough to be: (i) husband to an amazing woman; (ii) father to two others; and (iii) living in a great little community in San Jose, California.

Jerry is a highly experienced Venture Capital and Private Equity Fund Attorney in the Silicon Valley Office of Goodwin Procter LLP with nearly two decades of experience advising venture capitalists and other investment professionals in all aspects of forming and operating venture capital, secondary and private equity funds.

During his off time, Jerry: (i) turns water, grain, and yeast into a fairly respectable fermented beverage; (ii) fusses over his pizza oven; and (iii) uses gateway games like Pairs, Dixit and Forbidden Island to seduce unsuspecting mortals over to the dark side. Of course, he won’t whine if you ask to play Dominion or Catan.
