A Good Book
Sometimes you can read a book that changes how you see things in the world. I just read one of those books and it was called “Hatching Twitter.” I happened upon the book because it is required for one of my new classes in law school. The part I am sure we are likely to discuss in class has to deal with venture capitalists investing and how that plays a hand in how a board of directors is chosen. I found that part of the book very fascinating, but the thing I found most intriguing about the book is how the founders started the company. The founders didn’t come from backgrounds of enormous wealth or have ivy league degrees. It kind of gave me a little hope that if you put your mind to it, no matter who you are, that you can achieve big things.
I love the under dog story. The person you would least expect to create a thing like Twitter to revolutionize the world can happen. The book was full of backstabbing, corporate interests, a lot of money, but I thought it was a book that showed a lot of hope to other people who want to accomplish big things. I recommend that anybody with some free time to read this book. It is worth your while.
