The Glenn and Helen Show: Michael S. Malone on the Past and Future of Silicon Valley
Hewlett-Packard is now the biggest information technology company in the world, having surpassed both the $100 billion mark and IBM. How did it get there, over a period of time when so many promising companies fell apart? That's the topic of Michael S. Malone's new book, %%AMAZON=1591841526 Bill and Dave: How Hewlett and Packard Built the World's Greatest Company.%% Glenn Reynolds and Helen Smith talk with Malone about the role of old-fashioned values in surviving new-era corporate challenges, and the difficulties that HP has had in sticking to its approach as times change. It's a very interesting story, underscoring the fact that the most important part of every technology story involves the people behind the technology. Brought to you by Volvo USA.
