Kawasaki interviews Ebay's Omidyar (6 years ago)

Guy Kawasaki interviewed Pierre Omidyar, the founder of Ebay, in 2000, but only put the video up recently. I downloaded, watched, and thoroughly enjoyed. You should, too.

Ebay’s only made him the world’s 38th most wealthy man, despite, or because of, the fact that he’s quite and idealistic chap. Watching the interview sure beats the trite writing in The Perfect Store, a book about Ebay by journalist Adam Cohen.

Speaking of which, why is it that when journalists write books about great entrepreneurs they have to sound so evangelical? Their enthusiasm is so over the top it comes across as phony, something that rarely happens when the book is actually written by or for the man himself.
