"There are at least two 'institutional' forces at play reducing performance. Obscene levels of executive remuneration is one. A top executive who claims he needs incentives to do his job should not be a top executive - he could be selling vacuum cleaners door to door on an incentive plan. The other negative force is the excessive force of short-term financial markets."

"Few investment bankers and managers are current in the field. Bankers just are not geeks.To know what is the correct leap of faith, what the real insiders such as Thiel or Musk 'feel', is like magic to them. But it isn't. It's almost always about growth and volume of users. Insiders just have a far better handle on the technologies and people involved in building them."
