A CYNICAL CRACK ABOUT THE LAST LECTURE
I haven't watched the video, because it is so very long, but today my boss gushed about this line: "'We have these ideas, we have a couple of ideas. This idea here is very safe. This idea here is risky.' He said, 'Go for the risk. It's better to fail spectacularly then to pass along and do something which is mediocre.'"
I replied, "that's a pretty ironic statement from a man who made his living as a college professor."
