I would simply ask, "Who wrote it for him?" I was as giddy to hear Andy Grove speak as you are, until I actually heard him speak, and was dumbfounded by his sheer incoherence - his statements literally stopped the discussions cold, as no one knew what to make of his innane comments - the silence was deafening.Jason,
Equally with all due respect, if you review of "Physics and Technology of Semiconductor Devices", one of the foundational texts of the semiconductor industry, page thru it, and then insist he is a "babbling idiot", I will be compelled to give credence to your statement.
What gives Andy Grove any credentials in the area of EV's? It would be far more likely that he speak about photo voltaics, coming from a silicon production background, but he has NO experience developing parts, sub-systems, systems or vehicles in the EV market.He is presently lecturing in and will be teaching a graduate course at Stanford on EVs. He may be incoherent, but he clearly has a large audience and a position of great influence. I wish him well in our common goal, the promotion of EVs.
Surprising such a personal shot should come from you - I expected better.Sometimes, Jason, you hit the nail on the head. This time, you described yourself to a "T".
I've read many of Jack Welch's books, and I've seen him interviewed countless times, and his spoken word matches his written words. He's direct, clear and concise.
I don't care if you make Andy Grove the Pope, his spoken word doesn't match his written word, so his inexplicable foray into electric vehicles only makes sense with his history as an ardent liberal hoping to throw his weight into this area to help his candidate. That is his perogative, but I am going to broadside him like an Exocet missle. He's late to the party, and trying to now take the reigns, so I am going to chop his hands off.
