Boring Millionaires


Another interesting story from Vallywag about an entrepreneur during the early days of tech. The funniest paragraph is shown below.

Too many Valley millionaires have no good stories to tell, and no firsthand advice on getting rich other than “Get hired at Google in 2002.” That doesn’t qualify you to be a VC, or to start your own company, or hahaha to make it as a model. It makes you what Burn Rate author Michael Wolff dubbed “the walking dead” — rich guys no one wants to talk to. And if you’ll pardon my snobbery: Suddenly having a lot of free time and a new laptop doesn’t make you a writer. Are boring, self-aggrandizing Googler memoirs now circulating among book agents and publishers? Tragically, yes.
