top three

top three:

These are the three best things I’ve read this week:
1. Jeff Jarvis writes about Bill Gates leaving Microsoft: “The Meaning of Bill”.
2. Guy Kawasaki: “How to Kick Silicon Alley’s Butt”.
3. Paul Graham: “Why Start-ups Condense In America”.

i think the guy kawasaki post is the most significant of the three. he focuses on the reality of investing and startups, hits the idea on the head, that idea is ‘people have to have ideas that they want to bring to reality, people shouldn’t be trying to make money’. if you have the idealists with the capacity, then the money will flow. if you don’t have the idealists or the capacity, then you won’t have any real research and development and without research, you only have businesses and business is different from entrepreneurial activity.
