Link: Venture funding dips a bit in quarter, but VCs optimistic

I don’t believe that this quarterly report is enough to determine a trend. It will be interesting to see how the next quarter shakes out.

Anecdotally, it feels like things are certainly picking up, with a resurgence of friends working at startups and acquisitions of many small companies by the web heavy-weights.
