Andreessen Horowitz swings for the GitHub fences with $100 Million Series A Venture Investment

Colleagues,

Please see link below to article in "Upstart Business Journal" on the recent $100 Million Series A investment in GitHub made by one of Silicon Valley's hottest venture capital firms Andressssen Horowitz.

As it probably goes without saying, a $100 million is an outsized early stage venture investment.  It is my understanding that GitHub has refused outside money to this point.  Series A investments usually range in the $3 to $6 million range.  

I believe this large of a Series A commitment is an indicator of the deeply disruptive potential represented by GitHub, an open source code management/social networking company, and the open source software development approach which is at the heart of the OSEHRA (Open Source Electronic Health Record Agent) code management and repository system.  

Who says open source does't have a business model?

Congratulations to GitHub founder and CTO Tom Preston-Werner for leading the way.
