Teenage Dot Com Boy Wonder Not So Wonderful
from the nice-try dept
The Register has had a lot of fun over the past few months with teenager Ben Cohen – who appeared in every way to have been a very lucky teenager who thought he was brilliant (a dangerous combination, but one that seemed common in the days of easy dot com riches). Now the BBC has a television program where they followed him around and the Register points out that he looks more like a spoiled teenager who has no idea how to run a business, than a boy genius businessman. Anyone else think that the last six months or so has been the real world equivalent of the Emperor’s New Clothes? There are a lot of naked emperors showing up all of a sudden.
