Why hackers suck...


"If you work your way down the Forbes 400 making an x next to the name of each person with an MBA, you'll learn something important about business school. After Warren Buffett, you don't hit another MBA till number 22, Phil Knight, the CEO of Nike. There are only 5 MBAs in the top 50. What you notice in the Forbes 400 are a lot of people with technical backgrounds. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Larry Ellison, Michael Dell, Jeff Bezos, Gordon Moore. The rulers of the technology business tend to come from technology, not business. So if you want to invest two years in something that will help you succeed in business, the evidence suggests you'd do better to learn how to hack than get an MBA."
Paul Graham in How to start a startup



But, I'm very much amused, in real world, how such sane hackers are been ruled and overtaken by sales, marketing and HR guys. How those guys put the words into hackers mouth and outsmart?

On a second thought, it must be for God's sake...

"Don't answer the foolish arguments of fools, or you will become as foolish as they are."
Proverbs 26:4



"Don't waste your breath on fools, for they will despise the wisest advice."
Proverbs 23:9
