Marc Andreessen & Brendan Baker on Traction

Tonight I happened to stumble upon a great blog post from Venture Hacks titled What should I send investors? Part 3: Business Plans, NDAs, and Traction. The post cites two other blog posts, one from Marc Andreessen and another from Brendan Baker. I really wanted to read the aforementioned posts but unfortunately the links had long ago rotted away. Luckily I was able to find the posts elsewhere and just wanted to bookmark them here. Enjoy!
