Reading that article, I get the strong impression that A16Z really doesn't much know what the heck they are doing.



Yep, that's probably it.

Yes, it is.

Next to no one at A16Z is qualified to review new, correct, significant, powerful, valuable, useful technical material, review research papers in technical fields submitted to peer-reviewed journals of original research, be a problem sponsor at NSF, NIH, or DARPA, or be even an assistant professor at a research university in a technical field.

An entrepreneur with some new, correct, significant, powerful, valuable, useful technical material as the crucial, core technology of an information technology startup would face a serious threat with a partner at A16Z on their Board because that person would not be able to evaluate budgets and projects for new technical work for the company.
