I Am Alive! Doriot Round-up

It’s been awhile since I posted anything new on this blog. Sorry for that. I’ve been pretty swamped working at The Wall Street Journal since last April.

However, the story of Georges Doriot continues to resonate. Over the last 10 months, I have seen more than 100 Websites or blogs make reference to Doriot or feature him in a post. Here is a select list of those links:

* Fisher Investments profile of Doriot. Each week, it profiles an important figure in market history, highlighting the fascinating and often irreverent lives of key figures that influenced how capital markets came to be. (April 30, 2010)

* Finance and Business history of venture capital highlighting Doriot. (May 1, 2010)

* Creative Capital Makes Top Book List of Pittsburgh Ventures. Good synopsis of take-aways. (May, 5, 2010)

* Investing Principles of Doriot by Rocky Top MBA. (June 25, 2010)

* Great Comment on Doriot’s Belief in Importance of Manufacturing on ZDNet blog post. (July 7, 2010).

    Good to see you back. I am in London and was extolling the wonders of CC to an old friend and voila!

    Spencer,

    I sm surprised that you didn’t offer a post on the death of Ken Olsen last Sunday. He was a seminal figure in the success of Georges Doriot.

    By the way, I really enjoyed your book.

    Bruce
