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.
