One of the great privileges of being a journalist is getting to meet some of the world?? most influential business thinkers and doers. And an even greater privilege is sharing the information gleaned from these conversations with you. Recently, I sat down with Guy Kawasaki, the venture capitalist, ex-Apple Fellow, and co-founder of the start-up Alltop. It was a fun conversation, and also one that we wanted to point to in the Next blog because he offers insight not only on how his new company innovates, but also how large corporations might learn from tiny entrepreneurial ventures. And, for anyone curious to hear from Apple alumni on how and why Apple has been so successful, the conversation might be of interest. In case you missed it on BW.com or iTunes in the last week, here?? a link.
