Ben Horowitz is a partner with Marc Andreessen in a relatively new venture capital firm. Ben writes a very different type of VC blog, ben's blog, which frequently talks about how he evaluates different factors in the investment decision process. Today's post is on evaluating the CEO.
Today for the first time I noticed that a quote from Jon von Neumann appears on every post. As you may recall from a previous post, von Neumann was considered by many the greatest mathematician of the 20th century. This is the quote:

This quote should be the first quote in every book on writing a business plan. It would be worthy of a tattoo if it were a little shorter.
