TekTek (2880491) writes "SECTOR 001 – After countless false starts, it would seem as though the Borg Collective has finally come up with a winning technology acquisition strategy for the Earth market. Working with industry heavyweight Marc Andreessen, Google Ventures’ partner, Bill Maris, and Kleiner Perkins’ partner, John Doerr, the Borg have created a new $5,618,000 investment fund with a distinct twist. Their recently announced Glass Collective is solely dedicated to creating apps for Google Glass. “Glass represents the vanguard of cybernetic technology. Harnessing that energy will serve The Borg and our other investors well”, said Doerr. The new fund will initially be focused on the US market, according to Andreessen, because “A surprising number of Americans have proven themselves willing to sell out the whole of humanity for a healthy liquidity event”."
