Elevation Partners: Roger McNamee
Didn’t know this guy before i saw this lecture, but WOW does he present interesting arguments in a great way or what! Inclined to follow his thinking about the relevance and importance of HTML5. However his thoughts on microsoft and google “losing” seem a little bold and ridden with hyperbole… He does have very interesting arguments though.
Article by Paul Graham from October 2006, which speaks of the statistical reasons why startups fail.

Inspirational leader #2: Guy Kawasaki
I dunno if its the ring to this guy’s accent or what he’s saying or both, but i find this guy mesmerizing and very funny. Also anything a founding “evangelist” from apple says about business is worth listening too.
Absolutely love his 10-20-30 rule:
When presenting to a VC use a max of 10 slides, take no more then 20 minutes and use font size 30.
