great piece Steve, but I suspect the HBR guy didn’t really get what you were saying, just like the idiot VCs I’ve been talking to don’t get my company that can do $240M in revenue next year and $75M in EBITDA…because they don’t consider it a tech company, but a content company
I asked if Netflix is tech company? They say yes because they stream video. I reply that we do to and they say well you’re into sports, to which I reply, “Yes the most valuable content in media”…and the stupidity continues.
btw, several of these VCs are contacts of yours, so perhaps they should return to Stanford for a refresher course
