Consumed media this week

Just finished George Anders "Perfect Enough" about Carly Fiorina and her early days at Hewlett-Packard.  I had to read this after reading an article written by Jim Collins about how poorly companies do on average when they have a "Rock-Star" CEO.  The book was very interesting in that it revealed a lot of the human aspects of the machinations of Hewlett-Packard. 

If you don't know...HP canned Carly Fiorina in Feb of 2005.

Here's a chart of HP's stock ...notice the gains since they had a leadership change.

I also watched Batman Begins.  BY FAR the best Batman movie.  Overall tone was more plausible (yeah...I know, a microwave weapon that vaporizes water would...vaporize people since we're made of mostly...water).  But I liked it...if they make more like this one they're on the right track.250115.jpg
