Wasn’t it just a week or so ago that Businessweek was saying that HP had all the mojo, and Apple was losing momentum? Hmmm. Funny how things go, eh?
You know, in the midst of this HP spy scandal, I’m reminded of something Tom Perkins once told me. Steve, he said, whatever you do, don’t ever put a woman on your board of directors. Don’t let any women be on your top executive team either, if you can help it. They’re treacherous, Steve. Way worse than men. Ten times worse. First they have kids and they’re never around. Then they hit menopause. Makes them nuts. Like Linda Blair in the Exorcist.
Well, I took his advice, and that’s why you won’t see any women on our board. None among our top execs either. That’s right. No women, no minorities. And only one crazy person. Well, two, if you count me. We’re kind of proud of our record on this.
Just FYI: we do spy on all of these people. My orders.
