Fascinating – insight into Larry Ellison’s early career at Oracle

I tweeted this – but for those of you who don’t follow me or are not on twitter here’s the link.

Some choice quotes:

  • “Larry always had a 10-year technical vision that he could draw on the whiteboard or spin like a yarn.  It wasn’t always perfect, but it was way more right than wrong…”
  • “I remember a brilliant young programmer whom Larry allowed to live anywhere he wanted in the US or Canada, didn’t care about hours, where he was or any of that stuff. We just got him a network connection and that was it. This was unheard of back then…”
  • “Lessons Learned
    Great entrepreneurial DNA is comprised of leadership; technological vision; frugality; and the desire to succeed.”

It’s a quick read, but fascinating.
