George Gilder, retire in peace

George Gilder, retire in peace: The guy was really wrong about the financial side of fiber revolution, and he is wrong about wireless. In a video interview that certainly feels like it was paid for by Qualcomm, George Gilder goes on and on about how the Qualcomm “juggernaut” is going to destroy WiFi, writes TechDirt Wireless. “Gilder comes off as a paid shill rather than someone who actually understands what he’s talking about.” Glenn writes that “a lot of money was spent by U.S. companies pursuing Gilder’s last vision, and thus the resources that could have been devoted to pursuing inexpensive DSL were spent in overbuilding competing fiber-optic networks and in messy acquisitions at fraudulent valuations. “
