Many of today’s successful disruptive entrepreneurs and CEOs such as Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Elon Musk of Tesla and Reid Hoffman of LinkedIn are celebrated by the media as the rock stars of the new millennium. These men have generated great wealth for themselves, their investors…
For most of the world’s population, the evening of Dec. 31, 1999 wasn’t that much different than any other New Year’s Eve.
