Gene Kan On Repeating History

from the thanks,-Gene dept

The week before Gene Kan’s death, he apparently wrote a column for, which they published today. It is (as you would expect) all about peer-to-peer companies. Specifically, he talks about how many peer-to-peer companies made the same mistakes in rushing forward that many companies have made in the past. It is well written and gives a (tragically) final example of Gene’s ability to write about (or speak) on a variety of complex issues, by explaining them in a very simple to understand manner.
