You know it's a homogeneous society which is surveillance state with which government control they are killing it going across the globe getting equipment internet how digital help besides buying the mining rights to everything they're doing that. They're smart like that and so here we are literally arguing over the most inane stuff that is going to like not let us innovate and create new small companies in crete newswatch when we could go backwards twenty three years read something somebody buddy rose and then argue about whether whether they should pay for it all it's all the hallmarks of the society that would be to me. We could bring it back. We can complete because one of the things that we have going for us is is the ability to create competition and so that's why some of the stuff that some of these senators are saying you can call them communists. It's they're actually capitalists. The competition is always better for the for for businesses always better for the body politic. It's always better. It's even if it's kind of messy competition. I and the only way startups are going to happen is if we remove the barriers to creation. We bring them to bring them to hire educate. All kinds of things go into it but certainly certainly not <hes>. I mean immigration to me is the biggest is just such a obvious. Why do people think you're mean. Why are you the queen of mean.

"Evan. Thank you so much available for me about this, podcast pleasure. Upon graduation. You spent eight years at oracle. I as a software engineer, and they showed that vice president. I think most people would say you you made it he climbing at over ladder. Why did you start your own company in the first place a couple of reasons it really was ninety ninety five? So it was sort of the advent of the internet. It had both been only a couple of years since most of us had sort of experiencing internet first time. So I just saw incredible opportunity there. I mean, it was clear to be that it did. So to change everything. I mean, that's a cliche, but I can tell lead the amazing opportunities out there. And I wanted to take advantage of the time that I learned a ton for my first job. And I thought I could bring to bear on so Sauvage interesting crops. So what did you see saw? You saw some indications that there was a massive of two job there. But what did you say? Everyone was so connected. It was possible to get information out of a ball on their new format as easily as possible. And so for me, you know, what I've been working on or Las things I worked on at oracle was Larry's interactive television effort had, you know, a lot of times he's right on target with a lot of his ideas about how things are changing the world. But his little early on this one. I remember watching video on demand as it were in two thousand eight fifteen years later and going. Oh, yeah. Okay. We were only fifteen years off. But that notion of everybody being connected and beamed control more of what they see everything we take for granted. Now that you know, my generation we sort of on the when we drove in a car, like if we wanted to talk to someone we had to stop the car, we had a hope that we had changed and we had to go to a phone booth and call them and hope that they were at home because I was the only place you can talk to people on the phone. So, you know. Just the fact that the world was getting way more connected than for me. What was interesting is kind of my career been animated by this idea that we could bring powerful capabilities sort of ordinary and users a match what I sort of saw is that you know, these powerful applications is locations other types applications could be brought in a really compelling way to end users all over the world with the internet. So that that's what sort of animated named thinking. I wanted to do something on my own and tell us about your members company because he was it was far away from net. Sweet. Yeah. Well, so I, you know, I've been involved in the sort of multimedia stuff with the interactive television. And I wanted to bring more compelling experiences to people in a one of the things that caused the internet's take off was just that you know, as legend has it in Mark Andreessen decided he put pictures ins HTML pages and Britain and the browser. And so for me, it was more interac-. Content in the stuff. Some of the stuff we take for granted. Now that you can use in web pages. It was sort of really popularized by flash that was the same kind of thing that we were trying to do just make websites. More interactive easier for people to use on. So take some of that power these really powerful systems, and and use the internet and multimedia and animation interactivity to make it come alive. Now. Unfortunately, there's another company that had that idea there were called future splash, and they were eventually bought by macro media at the time, which now adobe it's create flash. And you know, macaroni really had the audience of multimedia and interactive developers in so they really sort of took over that market. And then, you know, so after about three years running that company while we had a very devoted following. It was pretty clear to me that it wasn't gonna take off like I hoped. So tell us about that process of that him it Mike how office wasn't then was going that route. You know, I learned about running a company. I mean, I'd I'd run it. They. True or goal and I've been manager..

"Beetles that where the shop where you were because I love to take things apart. So he'd pay me a buck to rebuild carburetor. So while everybody was sitting around the TV after dinner watching TV. I be sitting there to coffee table, the screwdriver taking carburetors apart that just became a a lifelong love of disassembling things I've spent the rest of my life learning how to reassemble them. What what were some of the jobs you held prior to starting geek squad. Why have actually held I four jobs my tire life, including my current job at at geek squad. I'm I pay job. I ever got was a rock climbing instructor in Canada over some other jobs. The second job I ever held was for the verbal mattress factory in wheeling Illinois town where I grew up we'd walk into a small showroom. You're gonna go buy a bed and somebody walks into store put the stapler gun down and walk out there in dust off the cotton and you sell a product, and I was pretty good at sales, and I had like blue combat boots and spiked hair. And I was the top salesperson. So if you get a little clank pretty well. And you just kinda realized you know, what you're good at now. How did the idea for making house calls fixing people's computers? Originate while you're at the university of Minnesota. Well at that time you remember early nineteen nineties. This is one kind of technology shift began to happen. I mean, Michael Dell I think just coming out of college. Bill Gates was about to come in the world's richest person at that time, you know, dial up internet access, I emerge and Nance when computers have become useful when they talked to each other. And you know, the first web browser was being developed Mark Andreessen who had found Netscape was still student at the university of Illinois in. So all these great things were going on. And my roommate worked in this research lab, and he took me there one day, and I saw the internet for the first time. So I started working there, but to pay for school I had to start making make extra money. So I started making house calls on my mountain bike and a cell phone and fixing PC problems. How did you? How did you let people know that you are in business to make those house calls while just word of mouth. I mean, that's why that's why service is so bad in any part of the world because it's easy to get into the service business. I mean, if you can do something technically, and you have a cell phone and. Do you have a few friends and you start doing work for them word will spread if you're good? You get a lot of phone calls. That's also part of the problem. We've all call the drywall contractor plumber. They don't return phone calls. They don't show up when they're supposed to they smell bad and talk down to your all of the above. And so I started showing up I kept hearing these things that other person fix went computer problem. But they you know, they wouldn't show me how they fixed it or they didn't never call me back or they were rude. And I thought well, there's really what you're paying me to remove that virus or get that file back. But then there's also the other things like showing up and taking my shoes off without being asked. And if you don't have any money for advertising those little details at up in that they all become your advertising, then I realized going here, I am a really unglamorous low in business. I computer repair that's not full of any creative people at all. And I'm I consider myself a pretty creative person would have a creative person went into a boring business. So my goal wasn't a computer. There. It was to grow it as kind of like a fast food business to venture get into the gourmet food business, high end, computer consulting. But I found those all the creative beautiful and smart people went into high end consulting, and nobody wanted to deal with this massive volume of people who need help. I'm Jessica Harrison. You're listening to from scratch. My guest is Robert Stevens founder of geek squad..

"And so. One of the issues is just that if you start removing the financial incentives than the whole thing falls apart. And so you know, I think in many cases, folks who haven't necessarily done a complete deep dive on, you know how some of these incentives work don't necessarily fully grasp that piece. And so you know, I think that's one of the things that I've focused on trying to to explain that actually likes money is at least so far. One of the is not the killer app and you know that that's actually a really big innovation in and of itself. Even though it might seem sexier or more in vogue to to jump to other use cases right now, that's actually a pretty incredible shift because ultimately, like money is something that everybody uses in some way, shape or form. And so having the potential at least to kind of revolutionize just the monetary aspect is. Really, really powerful. And so I think you know, that's one of the the issues that have kind of tried to to speak to people about as I've been, you know, pitching bees and bringing them aboard, total totally agree with that. I mean, the narrative of like blockchain, not bitcoin is just like this. You're just missing the entire point watching without the crypto asset around it is like a Google sheets that doesn't work very well. And and blockchain is a service you're talking about revolutionizing the back office of of enough, thanks which is just I dunno, pretty boring. Like I mean, congratulations if Warren Stanley lead cut semi by bibs off their like overhead, just they're using blockchain now. But from a like, this is just it's not even coming close to account for all revolutionary. Ask. Affects of of of what can happen here and. Yeah, it's just it's just you got to dive into it a little bit more too. Totally understand. Just about technologies about gets in chartreuse wrapped around. Yeah, I completely agree. And I think you know, Mark Mark Andreessen has said publicly that when he was building that's ape, like dean, able to embed money was missing coin, and that's the reason why he was so excited about bitcoin to begin with, like we've had database technologies since the eighties. So you know, none of that is new z. new piece is the fact that you can now attach monetary incentives to encourage people to perform certain behaviors, reward people for working on those networks and things like that. And so if you say, oh, they're the money piece, doesn't matter. You've really missed the point. So I'm, I feel very strongly about that piece. It's also the look at time and time again, when when technology's come along, disrupted incumbency like incumbency. So rarely is the group that sees it coming in his able to sort it like disrupt themselves. Right. Like you think that that the status quo would be best physician to see something coming. Can you sir? Their stranglehold, which is time and time issue. That's just like not the way it works. So there's an aspect of that when when you ask traditional finance about our about how some of this work. Do you feel like we've gone too far on the other side of like feeling that now you may on too many gases bitcoin maximalists, but it feels like the sentiment is bitcoin, not watching it like like the total opposite. We've swung too far that pendulum. I think right now that seems to be popular because we're in a bear market. So what I've noticed is that in this this applies to any sort of market really not crypto in particular, when sentiment is bearish and people are afraid, there's kind of flight to quality typically and so within the crypto in sometimes that just means moved back to dollars because that's the safest quote, unquote. But even within crypto, I think sometimes that means flight to bitcoin, both potentially in terms of, you know, actually what assets you're holding, but certainly also in terms of ideology. And so right now is you know, if you look at what coins are down a lot of the altar down like eighty, ninety plus percent bitcoin is down quite a lot, but not that for medically. And so I think within the crypto ecosystem, it is the quality. And so last year everyone was super excited about the forefront on my God because he's so boring result over at like, you know, bitcoin. Dead because it's going to be supplanted, and that was happened to coincide..

"In the election how do you think americans are feeling about the big tech companies overall uh in 2017 within media i've definitely seen a shift in the way that we report on companies like facebook or twitter tesla i think in many ways you know one way that i think that mark andreessen summarized it a big silicon valley investor he said the narrative is shifted from tech is stupid to tech is evil i'm that for a long time the focus was on how facebook was frivolous on how twitter wasn't making any money on how tesla was silly and now it's tech is evil facebook is evil twitter is evil netflixing monopoly gugel makes too much money i think that narrative is actually shifting into a third degree and that is tech is so big that it justifies any merger cvs and aetna dave said that they have to merge to counter amazon right central foray into pharmaceuticals disney and fox have said that there potential merger is essentially all about combating netflixing at t and time warner one of the big media mergers that the government is now going up against have said this is all about competing with net flicks and facebook and gugel across the board i think you're gonna see this in 2018 to quite honestly to make a little bit of a prediction i think you're going to see mergers running rampant across the economy a because of the corporate tax reform bill that are going to make these mergers more attractive but be because you now have these tech behemoths whose shadow extends all across the economy and these legacy companies saying the only way to we can compete is for us to band together and merge and so i think this is a narrative you're going to see a lot or hear a lot in the next year tech is so big that it justifies anything now the scary part of that if 2018 is a big year for mergers is that the experts do say that all the mergers and acquisitions happened right before the crash so.
