More than one way to become a billionaire in Silicon Valley - threepointer - 06-07-2019

How John Arrillaga made his billions.  Interesting read.  Much of it known, but the article puts the era of high tech in the context of Bay Area real estate and the visionaries that got ahead of and helped fuel the boom.

"Someday, you're going to be a very rich man! And always remember your alma mater!"
--John Arrillaga to me.

Mr. Arrillaga called me up out of the blue one day to acknowledge a note I sent him thanking him for all he did for Stanford Athletics. That was kind of awesome. The first part of his prophecy has yet to be realized, but he knows what he's talking about, so I'm sure it'll happen very soon...
