The Glue 2011 content should be up soon - I know Eric is focused on Defrag and expect the Glue site to be updated for 2011 shortly after. In the mean time, the link to apply for the Alcatel-Lucent Demo Pavilion at Glue is live.

In a private company, if there is preferred stock that is owned by investors, there is an opportunity (and a goal) by the company to price the common stock lower than the preferred stock (since the preferred stock has rights that the common stock doesn't have.) As a result, the options (which are almost always for common stock) get priced lower than the preferred stock. The amount of the discount varies widely by the stage / state of the company.

Government statistics on this stuff lag dramatically so I don't think any of them will be useful. All you need to do is travel around the US and talk to people - the number of new tech startups throughout the US is staggering.

Yes, although I'm not sure training associates necessarily does this. There's a long path from associate to partner in most VC contexts and many of the folks that work for other firms as associates end back up in the entrepreneurial pool as their next step on their career path.

That said, it would be great to have more awesome VCs in Boulder, although we've got numerous ones participating that are not Boulder-based these days and they've been hugely impactful on the local tech scene.

There won't be - I'm spending the day at Launchbox.
