His angel investing history predates Google; in the 1990s, he placed bets on e-mail software maker Sendmail and Hipbone, a customer service software company that was acquired by software maker Kana in 2004. Lately, his investments have ranged from intern-posting site Intern Inc. to Giiv, a service for sending money and gifts via mobile text messages.
