    @Stapleton - did they edit? "The documents Cooley posted in fact began as a GitHub repository compiled by former attorneys Ted Wang, now an investment partner at Cowboy Ventures, and Jason Boehmig, now the CEO of Ironclad. Wang and Boehmig posted documents for a company‘s first private equity financing online, which they dubbed "Series Seed" documents, beginning a broad community discussion about the content of the documents that culminated in a plain-text GitHub repository posted in 2013. Since then, the documents have been "pulled," or downloaded, 15 times, and have been "committed," or altered, 13 times."

    I am a bit taken aback that you write a lengthy article on Series Seed, yet fail to mention Fenwick & West‘s substantial work in the origination, support and growth of seriesseed.com. Did the author not run a Google search on either Ted Wang (longtime lawyer at Fenwick & West) or series seed? fenwick.com/news/Pages/Legal-Help-Has-Arrived-for-the-Cash-Strapped-Entrepreneur.aspx
