“Shortly after completing my PhD I was invited to join an IT firm. I politely refused since I did not see any future for the company. It since became one of the leaders in the industry: a friend of mine, who accepted the offer, recently retired with a fortune bigger than most firms’ capitalization.
He once came to a class I was teaching and told my students:
Listen to your teacher, but don’t follow his advice.”
