Ummmmm..... Those businesses were started by tech folks, not business folks.

I probably threw it off the most, but it went in good directions. Good stuff to ponder.

True enough but when you start considering using the archives, it makes some stuff just impossible to evaluate.

Art, I don't think of them as successes. I think of them as things that started off really great and bombed because of bad business decisions. IE> They let the business guys take the controls building those mouse traps.

I don't know if either of you watched Ford vs Ferrari which I loved. At one point Christian Bale is explaining to Matt Damon about why his deal having total control over the car design is flawed. Bale simply says; "see that building? It's full of Ford lawyers who will spend all of their time making sure that you will never have control and you'll fail?

If you haven't seen the movie, try it. Best racing movie I've ever seen. I'm Happy Happy Happy!
