Quotable (#64)

Reid Hoffman describes his first meeting with Peter Thiel:

“Peter and I met in a philosophy class at Stanford. We had been told about each other for about a year. He was told that there was this person who was a communist he should meet. I was told that there was this person who was to the right of Attila the Hun …”

About Hoffman’s role at PayPal, Thiel remarks elsewhere: “He was the firefighter in chief at PayPal … Though that diminishes his role because there were many, many fires.”

(Since I find it hard to distinguish between LinkedIn and a computer virus, I confess to some ambivalence about the guy.)
