I agree, IQs are overrated. There are many other factors that contribute to success

Buen análisis de la deuda en España, parece bastante objetivo.
Hay que comparar la evolución de los países Europeos para comprender que aunque España lo ha hecho fatal estos años, el resto de países también tienen problemas de deuda.

If you think a lot of things have changed in the recent years, this is only the beginning. As Mary Meeker puts it, we are going to see a Re-Imagination of nearly everything: Encyclopedia Britannica vs Wikipedia, PCs vs Tablets, Books vs Kindle, etc

I knew Richard Branson was dyslexic, I'm surprised to see many others:

"Prominent dyslexics include the founders of Ford, General Electric, IBM and IKEA, not to mention more recent successes such as Charles Schwab (the founder of a stockbroker), Richard Branson (the Virgin Group), John Chambers (Cisco) and Steve Jobs (Apple)."
IN 1956 William Whyte argued in his bestseller, “The Organisation Man”, that companies were so in love with “well-rounded” executives that they fought a “fight against genius”.

I think it's a mistake."

However, I believe he is quite right on his last prediction, screens and keyboards are going to be accessories to our phones.

"In the beginning, one of the things I did at Palm, which is really a good thing to do, is we made it an accessory to the PC. We didn't say it was a computer, we didn't say it was a platform. We said, "It's an accessory to your PC. It comes with this cradle, attaches to your PC, and it works with your PC." In the future, I think it's going to be flipped around. In the future, the thing in your pocket is the center of the universe. And the big screen and the keyboard becomes an accessory to it. And I think it's a good thing. I think it's going to happen."
Hawkins talks on the importance and inevitability of portablity. With portability comes small size, low cost, simplicity and the need for less power. With wireless networks on their way to becoming ve...
