“Guy Kawasaki turns blue, offering levity and insight for dot-com survivors.
ATLANTA– It wasn’t a exactly a cold day in hell, but eyebrows went up when longtime Apple Computer evangelist Guy Kawasaki delivered a pep rally for 4000 IBM loyalists at its annual PartnerWorld 2001 convention here Tuesday.
‘This is a historic moment,’ Kawasaki professed, referring to his choice of an IBM ThinkPad over an Apple PowerBook to run his PowerPoint presentation. ‘If Steve Jobs could only see me now.'”
– Guy has written a great new book called ‘The Art of the Start”. In this interview he says that ‘a bubble’ is the wrong way to describe the Internet and that comparing it to the tides is a more valid model. Kawasaki say, “Wait around long enough, and it’ll come back in.” with emphasis that it is on its way back in now. -ed.
