The problem with live radio/TV is that you always remember what you want to say later. There were two things I meant to say, but I either never spit it out or said it very poorly. They were:
- I never managed to say: "It only takes a dozen years to become an overnight sensation;" But its the case — you can toil away in obscurity doing the same thing and never be noticed;
- I did say there’s a "dearth" of original thinking on Wall Street. That overstates the case. To be sure, there is certainly plenty of herding and groupthink. However, I am constantly reading other people whose work I find tremendously insightful and value added.
Perhaps in hindsight, the word "dearth" was too strong. The huge blogroll (at left) and the weekend linkfests are a testament to the many thoughtful and unique voices there are on the Street, beyond the usual sources.
