Category : Commentary/busybeingborn.txt
"He who's not busy being born, is busy dying". That's Bob Dylan, and I wrote about this sometime back in connection with a book I was reading then, "The Creative Economy - How People Make Money from Ideas" by John Howkins.
I picked up Andy Grove's book, "Only the Paranoid Survive" from my book shelf, turned to the back cover and, whaddaya know, there's a blurb from Steve Jobs. (This book came out, let me see, in 1996.)
