Friday Reads

I have an interesting lunch meeting today with a brilliant guy: One of the founders of ICE. I know M from our early pre-E*Trade days, way back when I started in the biz as a trader.

M has begun and sold more successful businesses — and for more money — than anyone I know. Our meetings are always off the record, but I will see what I can glean from him for public consumption.

I always  look forward to any time spent with him, as he is always intriguing — sees the world differently than most humans, has a brilliant mind for what does and does not work in commerce.

While I am breaking bread, here are some items of interest:
