    Steve Jobs.
    Bill Gates.
    Steve Ballmer.
    Larry Ellison.

    Jeff Bezos.
    Scott McNealy.
    Andrew Grove.
    Eric Schmidt.

    I would love to keep adding to the above list of evil meanies who don't "win by attacking" but I've got to attend a court-ordered behavior modification seminar given by Barney the Purple Dinosaur. All the cool kids will be there if they remember to take their Zoloft.


    And now a word from our sponsor............

    "I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
    Take a bow for the new revolution
    Smile and grin at the change all around
    Pick up my guitar and play
    Just like yesterday
    Then I'll get on my knees and pray
    We don't get fooled again"

    We do believe in this too - having gone for 2 years without funding with our dj booking platform Beatsy. Also recently we launched a non-profit to help DJs get paid for gigs - http://paythedj.org

    We think doing good _genuinely_ is the path to true success, that is what gives you fulfillment at the end of the day.
