The Land of the Giants

And no i don’t mean the campy 70’s era show.

I mean In the Company of Giants.

I’ve been curious recently, who are today’s giants? The book was written almost ten years ago. That’s a long time in technology. Some of those giants are still around and still giants; Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Michael Dell.

What about new Giants? Who’s a giant today? Jeff Bezos? the founders of Ebay? Y! Google?

What about hardware? I hadn’t ever heard of Cypress Semi before I read Giants, but he was still a giant of the time. I’m quite certain there are giants right under my nose that fly just under the public radar, but are none the less leaders in their industry.

What do you think? Who do you think are giants?
