PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I'm currently reading Jerry Kaplan's excellent book "Startup: a Silicon Valley adventure". In this book, Kaplan, founder and CEO of GO Corp., details the founding, financing and eventual demise of his highly innovative company, including the development and workings of their product. What's so surprising about this book is just how timeless it really is - the names and products may have changed, but the business practices and company attitudes surely haven't.

Maybe they should hire Jeff Bezos. Sure, he doesn't have the eye for design, but according to Steve Yegge, Bezos is a fast and complete learner. He's already got the control freak, impossibly high standards and the visionary aspects of the persona well developed. An eye for visual design can be learned.
