Marc Perton got right much of the gist of my feelings about too much money, which are pretty much the opposite of the Silicon Valley norm.
“Craig Newmark recently posted something reflecting on the 20th anniversary of Craigslist, in which he reiterated his late-90s statement that 'no one needs a billion dollars.'"
Then, as now, the statement, seemingly obvious, was controversial.
“When Craigslist grew to prominence at the beginning of the century, the idea of leaving that much money on the table seemed like a bizarre joke to most of the tech world.”
(He followed by debunking some of the mythology around craigslist.)
Y’know, it’s good to know when enough is enough.
I’m such a nerd.
