I went to graduate school here in Silicon Valley at Stanford. It’s renowned for churning out a lot of interesting companies. My first office mates were the founders of Yahoo, and I distinctly remember telling them to stop wasting their time and focus on their school work before they went off and started that.
And then not learning from my mistake, I then went on to share the hallway with the founders of Google and had a pretty similar conversation with them.
