Now look. Andrew Ross Sorkin is far and away the smartest writer on economics at work today, but his article in today’s New York Times blaming Larry for all the hostility in the Valley is a bit over the top. Specifically, Andrew says Larry’s attacks on Peoplesoft set the stage for Microsoft to make an attack on Yahoo. Poor Larry gets blamed for everything. Last year it was the Hep-C outbreak at Stanford. So I guess this one isn’t so bad after all.
