RIP Andy Grove

Give me a turbulent world as opposed to a quiet world and I’ll take the turbulent one.

The Internet doesn’t change everything. It doesn’t change supply and demand.

Success breeds complacency. Complacency breeds failure. Only the paranoid survive.

Not all problems have a technological answer, but when they do, that is the more lasting solution.

Leaders have to act more quickly today. The pressure comes much faster.

Bad companies are destroyed by crisis, Good companies survive them, Great companies are improved by them.

There are so many people working so hard and achieving so little.

Technology happens, it’s not good, it’s not bad. Is steel good or bad?

Your career is your business, and you are its CEO.

I think it is very important for you to do two things: act on your temporary conviction as if it was a real conviction; and when you realize that you are wrong, correct course very quickly

Pentru mine (inca) cel mai important tool pentru citit stiri:

Ringier discuta preluarea Imobiliare.ro

Ceea ce se zvonea prin piata de cateva luni apare azi in Ziarul Financiar, Ringier, prin sediul central din Elvetia, discuta preluarea Imobiliare.ro. Dupa ce a preluat si integrat cu succes eJobs, Ringier merge pe aceeasi reteta, siteuri de servicii care se monetizeaza prin plata serviciilor si mai putin prin publicitate online.

Ceea ce nu apare in materialul ZF este pretul cerut de Siminel Andrei, reprezentantul fondului de investii Broadhurst, actionarul majoritar al RealMedia Network, firma care detine Imobiliare.ro: 17 milioane euro. Probabil tranzactia se va face undeva in jurul a 15 milioane euro. Sper sa iasa, m-as bucura pentru Adi Erimescu, unul din oamenii care tac si fac din onlineul romanesc.

PS. 50% din Imobiliare a fost cumparat in 2005 la propunerea mea si dupa mai multe luni de negocieri, purtate cu Adi, pentru 100,000 dolari. Ar fi al doilea motiv pentru care m-as bucura sa iasa tranzactia.

Pustiul care acum 11 ani mi-a refuzat oferta de a cumpara doizece.ro a ajuns in New York Times ca personaj principal intr-o analiza. Bravo, Vivi, te asteptam ca “benevolent dictator” cand te plictisesti de Trump, .ro-ul are nevoie de oameni ca tine.

Slack doesn’t replace meetings,’’ Costache objected, when I asked him, on the phone. ‘‘It replaces the water cooler.’’ I remembered the cold-brew coffee keg in Spring’s office that, judging by the voluble group often around it, seemed to have replaced the water cooler already. ‘‘When saddle-makers wanted to sell saddles, they promoted riding horses. Slack sells the idea of a new kind of meeting and a new kind of workplace in order to sell Slack.’’

So, I asked, what do we do about meetings? Just ban them?

‘‘I’m not that radical,’’ he said, at last. ‘‘There’s too much value to an in-person meeting. When my engineering team has to decide what they want to build in the next two weeks, this is hard to do without meetings. Say it’s me and three other senior engineers discussing an architectural choice about our Python code base. We start to discuss what that looked like, and give one person feedback. .?.?. ’’ He paused. ‘‘There’s so much volume of information — it’s like a river of information. If it’s a valuable meeting, we all pour this information. Someone’s distraction, another person’s incomprehension. I have this image of a giant pipe, so much richness. It couldn’t go on Slack.’’
