“Billy Durant Day” at Sloan

by Larry Chiang on June 15, 2012

By Larry Chiang

Who is Billy Durant?!

He is the technical co-founder of GM. Got fired after he sold it

He is the technical co-founder of Chevrolet. Got fired after he sold it to GM

Died managing a bowling alley and poor

People mistakenly think Alfred P Sloan started GM. Nope, he is the bean counter

Well, imma entrepreneur and that does not sit well with me and the CS major engineer technical co-founders.

I’m tired of pretty, pretty C3PO bean counter business people. I worship and adore JC but if it were not sacrilege– I’d pay homage to R2D2/Billy Durant

I’ve made plans for Larry Chiang’s “Billy Durant Day” at Sloan at Sloan, cambridge, Friday, October 26, 2012 You should join me!
