Schmidt's TomorrowVentures LLC just made a well-publicized, $2 million investment in Social Gaming Network, a maker of iPhone apps. Social Gaming Network was started by Shervin Pishevar who, in addition to investing in one company acquired by Google, joins Schmidt's sometime girlfriend Marcy Simon in documenting their time together, on Twitter:
Simon also recently tweeted this intriguing sequence of posts, calling out Pishevar as a nearby friend in "romantic" Sag Harbor:
Simon's friend Pishevar, then, makes two consorts of Schmidt's mistresses in his venture-capital inner circle. Of course, as we said last time around, maybe these overlapping ties are just random and coincidental. But the Google chief should be aware of appearances, if only because Silicon Valley startup founders can get desperate. If they think there's coin in cozying up to Schmidt's (ex-)mistresses, they'll be even more aggressive than Valleywag in tracking them down. And that can't end well.
