Vinod Khosla on Perseverance & Failure

Amazing guy…

I am exploring his interviews. His philosophy and his way to deal with anything, his stance against failure and success, his brutal honesty concept and his perseverance are awe-inspiring.

Alternative Education

This is a hot subject in our days, and one that i am interested in alot. We can see that the traditional schooling system, which was in fact created in order to produce workers for the industry, is failing, and it’s gonna go down hard.
