I attended Dan Pulcrano’s extraordinary C2SV conference recently and we are working to get videos of the events online after a period of post-production. There were many great speakers and highlights but the apocryphal moment was surely when Dan got Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Atari founder Nolan Bushnell up on stage together for the first time. They waxed eloquently on a wide range of subjects. We will post the videos when they become available.
After the session, I talked to Nolan and asked him what are the most important factors in creating an environment for the achievement of audacious visions. He answered: “…intensity and passion. If you had to come down to one single idea, that is it. I also really believe that playfulness…I think people who take themselves too seriously tend to self-edit too much. If you are kind of willing to be out there a little bit, crazy, that’s a characteristic.”
