READ The Nudist on the Late Shift And Other True Tales of Silicon Valley 107 Po Bronson ´ 7 READ SUMMARY Å eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Po Bronson Mecca Taking us inside the world of these newcomers brainiacs salespeople headhunters utopians plutocrats and innovators as they transform our culture The Nudist on the Late Shift is a defining portrait of a new generation in the whirl of an information revolution and an international gold rushPo Bronson is the author of two novels and one book of nonfiction Bombardiers a dark satire of Overall I thought this book was somewhat dull though there were nuggets of interesting information in the bookSilicon Valley blurs the line bw work and play so that work takes over once life The problem with Silicon Valley at the turn of the century is that there was nothing present there Because everything they do is guarded by intellectual property laws they kept everything they have secret Whereas the East Coast are populated by the movers and shakers the West Coast is populated by people who want the opportunity to be a mover and shaker For young people it is very important not to be able to see one s fate very important to have the sense that one s life is not preordained Bronson is interested in people s pursuit of an unusual life I agree with the thinking that as long as people get there work done there is no need for face time It seems all Asian countries businesses are based on relationships or bribing the right people at the right time It is hard being a first generation immigrant especially if you are the first from your country to come to the US Just like Asia for a company to get noticed they have t know the right people People in Silicon Valley are optimistic that things will turn around for them when they fail Entrepreneurs are willing to defy convention in order to succeed It is interesting how even leaders of companies freeze when they are in front of many people to pitch an idea Whereas entrepreneurs have control of all aspects of their company once they join the market they lose control to the whims of the market forces that may have nothing to do with the fundamentals that they have People do not get rich on the IPO rather they get rich afterwards when they are with the company for awhile Companies who make IPO are beholden to Walls Streets uarterly earning reports So if they do not make target growth set by Wall Street though they have solid fundamentals they become a liability and thus there stock sinks Going public is the only path to liuidity for the VC and the owner though the company will have to suffer the arbitrariness of the market of saying the company is not growing in a clipped pace as it is suppose to grow For the owners going public confers on them a certain amount of prestige that they would normally not have Peer pressure causes entrepreneurs to take their companies public so they know what that they have made their companies public too Stock options are free stock paid to the employees without them having to buy them For West Coast people it is the opportunities for success minus the risk since it is stock that was given to them Since IPO s have become routine the world of high finance and high tech have met in the middle and have seen the light Entrepreneurs are combination of people with ideas and the blind determination to see their ideas come into fruition Although the founder of hotmail happened to be mathematically a genius he also came to Silicon Valley that allowed him to pursue his dreams of making a company out of nothing In his case he wanted to make a huge company before a product was even in his radar He had a vision and convinced other people to buy into it Besides his networking abilities he also enabled and harmonized the workers he was working with He relishes the big risk and working toward his vision with a sense of mission For Silicon Valley entrepreneurs being cheap initially means being richer once they go for the IPO bc they save on euity For programmers they are highly skilled employees who forgo the chance at millions for a salary and creating a schedule around their part time careers An interesting uestion to ask is if nothing lasts forever should people still form attachments Max is an autistic programmer who does not know if something will make money or not that is the reason he wants cash up front instead of worthless options In tech world where products look similar the sale usually goes to the sales person one likes Salespeople are motivated by money While salespeople are motivated by money they have to have a product which they can sell They do not necessarily have to believe in the product they just have to believe they can sell it Salespeople should listen and talk less in order for the client to tell them exactly what he needs If a tech company is a publicly traded company then they have to continue selling stuff per uarter Each uarter should outgrow the previous uarter s uota in sales which target s are set by Wall Street analysts Sales people only sell to companies who use their products In technology buyers decide the price According to Bronson the hardest part of sales is to abruptly say goodbye so the customer will not have time for buyers remorse Gilder was a guy who says sensational things to get media coverage so he would get his point across He believes in supply side economics and that today s problems will change by tomorrow s entrepreneurial engineering He believes in the libertarian motive of how the Internet will disrupt Hollywood and the music industries George was correct in his guess that the Internet would replace the baby bells with ISP and his theory that the Internet would make personal computers obsolete in favor of smart phones and tablets In the Information Age whomever can manipulate information the fastest will lead the future of the world CEO s love to debate because it is only through debating that they keep their thoughts sharp He wants companies to think about the long term implications of what they do Danny s history suggests that he trouble shoots in resource poor places in order to maximizes things that work Everyone in Silicon Valley is attempting to make things that have not existed before Bronson believes that to create and risk failing is the essence of feeling alive In Silicon Valley having money is a sign of respect But because there is a lot of money floating around they do not care about where the money goes so they allow needless spending all over the place In the era of Internet expansion talent is the limiting factor for rapid expansion People want to work for a company that will succeed not just some company that will make money but tank in a few years Silicon Valley personnel believe in competition in order to motivate their workers to create value in society via libertarian point of view in motivating their workers toward self interest the allocation of resources would be maximize which ultimately benefits society and workaholic viewpoint in that anything worth doing is hard Although Silicon Valley financiers have inside knowledge on how things should run their knowledge ideally should be kept open to all So in a way insider trading occurs in Silicon Valley circles than traditional circles Although there is no such thing as company loyalty in the US since the advent of multinational firms laying off people the Silicon Valley industry people are generally loyal to the industry but not necessarily a specific company Silicon Valley entrepreneurs tend to think in the short term instead of the long term effects of their products or their creation of their companies Silicon Valley employees are motivated by the chance to revolutionize the world via

states that the key to success is to find away to make a difference and everything will follow from personal success to promotions to financial gain He encourages complainers bc it is only through complaints that objectives for progress are identified The tech culture influences other valley non tech businesses in that the thought process becomes one of not if we can do it but how we are to accomplish the impossible The success in Silicon Valley are not scalable bc it runs on word of mouth of small subset of people who are in the know NetworkingStatus in Silicon Valley has to do with scarcity so it has to do with what is done right now not what what is done down the line Thus status is given to a company that has done the most with the least amount of resources The new economy
