Michael Lewis opens the story on the sophisticated sailboat that many of us would not dare to travel in despite the offer of lucrative stock options in Jim Clark's latest venture. It so happens that on completion of the trans-atlantic voyage the people on board discover that they had become richer several folds. Humor apart, this is one of the well-narrated stories about the mind and vision of one of foremost Silicon Valley architects.
We have scores of success stories of business leaders who have built multi-billion dollar businesses ground up in a short duration. But in this case we have a person who quickly moves from one success to another and in each case an unrelated one. The common thread is Computing and Internet.
The men from the India-Pawan, Kittu and Shankar receive due credit and people in this part of the world would be eager to have a glimpse at "Hyperion" if she makes a voyage across the Indian Ocean !
Happy sailing !
