Bird Watching
Yesterday was Big Bird Day in Kolkata city - a day when birdwatchers go out in teams from dawn to dusk to count and record the number of bird species they see on that day. Not only does this well advertised event spread the word about birdwatching, it also serves as a citizen science initiative to records changing species diversity across the country.
Here is one of my team members at a local woodland bird sanctuary.

+Guy Kawasaki shared a story that was from 2001 and how Apple stores would fail. Doing a Google search for several different terms, came across a few other rather funny posts.

Why the iPhone will fail, and fail badly (2006): http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/12/23/iphone_will_fail/

6 pages of gold about how the iPod will fail (2001): http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=500

Why the iPad will fail to win significant market share (2010) which goes to say, "In the end, I think that the iPad will eventually be regarded much like Apple TV – a product that Jobs should have left on the drawing boards.": http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/tr-out-loud/why-the-ipad-will-fail-to-win-significant-market-share/1666

Moral of the story? Don't listen to critics. They'll say what they have to say. Just focus on putting value out in the marketplace and your customers will soon enough decide if it's worthy or not.

Partying with a great American

I'll be honest. Davos, er, the World Economic Forum, is full of plastic people and lots of bullshit. That's what fame, power, and money do to many people.

I told +Loic Le Meur that I was getting tired of Davos but then I spent a couple of hours getting to know Howard Lutnick, CEO of Cantor Fitzgerald, and everything changed.

Those of you around a few years might recognize that name. His brother, along with many employees, were killed on 9/11 in the World Trade Center. That got him to spend Cantor Fitzgerald's profits on the families of his employees. That is a story that alone places him amongst the pinacle of corporate leaders in the world.

I knew that story and had already thanked him at a previous Davos for being a great American but tonight he pulled me aside and told me the rest of the story.

He explained his mom died when he was 12 and that his dad died the week he got to college. How? A nurse killed him with an accidental overdose. That alone shocked me, but then he explained how his dad's brother totally failed to step up and take care of the kids, so Howard took over.

I don't need to tell you the story. He told it to his college.

One thing I remember is that he told me the dean at his college called him into the office after his dad died and said something like "don't worry about paying for your education."

He told me tonight that that gift was forgotten at the time. He couldn't process how nice it was because he was struggling to help raise his siblings and just keep his shit together.

But that played a key role later during 9/11 because he realized the role of taking care of people during chaotic times.

As he was telling me this story tears were rolling down my cheek. I have interviewed thousands of corporate leaders and I haven't once heard a story as compelling as Howard's.

Have you? Watch his speech and see if you can keep it together.
