Author: JT Smith

ZDNet's David Coursey comments on Silicon Valley's latest trend of seeking out experienced leaders: "During the Internet gold rush, venture capital seemed to accept the 1960's mantra that nobody older than 30 could be "relevant" to the new economy. Now that the gold rush has ended -- or at least headed to the islands for a rest -- the target age for Silicon Valley execs has raced past 40. And 50 year old CEOs are starting to look very attractive."
