Step aside, old man. Let imagination lead the way.

My Sunday Washington Post Business Section column is (belatedly) up online. This afternoon, we look at the next generation of tech entrepreneurs Step aside, old man. Let moxie and imagination lead the way.

The online version was the conservative On Investing: The future isn’t grim, and it belongs to young entrepreneurs [2]; the print print version had the more interesting Step aside, old man. Let moxie and imagination lead the way [3].

Here’s an excerpt from the column:

“On these pages, I have cast a rather skeptical eye on all matters financial. I have mocked the housing recovery calls, critiqued the valuation of Facebook, despised the robo-signing settlement, urged caution on the Black Friday retail hype. The silliness coming out of Wall Street is much like a carnival barker urging us to play one more of “games of skill.” All of which goes to say I am not your run-of-the-mill perma-bull or economic cheerleader. Readers, in fact, have called me a curmudgeon.

And yet, as I look to the long term, I’m optimistic.”

I really like what the Post did in the dead tree version of the paper — the art work is really interesting:
