BOB METCALFE INTERVIEW... "TAKE THAT, MR. SULZBERGER!"
Tony and Rich has a good interview series with Bob Metcalfe, inventor of the Ethernet and partner at Polaris Ventures. The title is similar to my prior article at AO, so I don't know if Rich just wanted use a similar theme for this title or Tony wanted to take another poke at the NY Times, which we both aren't that fond of.:)
AlwaysOn: Right. If you want to set up and type away in your underwear for free, god bless America, but critical mass creates money. I could teach you how to make a million bucks doing a blog, but it would take a lot of your time. Do you really believe that the New York Times is going to be put out of business by open-source media?
Metcalfe: I really want Arthur Sulzberger Jr.'s newspaper—which he's corrupting and perverting—to go directly out of business. They're not willing to try anything. So blogs might be the future.
