Rational Exuberance

from the everything's-going-to-be-ok dept

A great interview with Andy Grove. I tend to agree with a lot of what he says – but he says it so much better than I ever could. The internet is a big deal – and has had and will continue to have a huge effect on businesses. However the ridiculous overhype of things made people focus on the wrong things (mainly getting rich quickly). It’s a long interview, but definitely worth reading. I think that his method for looking at things – extreme skepticism, but with a willingness to be convinced based on research and well thought out arguments – is a very useful way of going through life.
