Great job in establishing a dialogue with Cuban - very interesting!
Aside from the inherent interest of what he had to say, I have to admit I found myself thinking: "this guy makes all sorts of terrible spelling and syntax errors, and I write almost perfectly. Yet he's a billionaire and I'm surely not. Goes to show you what's important and what's not when it comes to success!"
Alot of people just can't type! Just read a thread here! I also think he was probably typing quickly because he's visibly angry about this Schlussel article and being inundated with emails.
"Yet he's a billionaire and I'm surely not. Goes to show you what's important and what's not when it comes to success!""
I don't know much about it but I know this. Like a lot of people, Cuban started a hi-tech company in the '90s that quickly soared to absurd evaluations. Most of them immediately assumed they were geniuses and the next Bill Gates. They held onto their companies and prepared to be powerful moguls for the rest of their lives. By 2001, most of them had nothing.
Cuban, on the other hand, realized that he had gotten lucky and the country was crazy. he sold out at or near the peak for pure cash. Which was over $1 billion.
