Research and Fun Facts

I recently found this diagram where we can see how incredibly connected the Tech World is. There is some shocking stuff: Hotmail created by an Apple employee? TeslaMotors, YouTube and Yelp all created by PayPal employees? PayPal must be (or been) a very good talent magnet, I really wonder why haven’t I heard more about it. It looks like “it’s just a payment method” like Visa or bank transfers and goes by unnoticed, but seeing this I can expect big things from PayPal in the near future. Unless, of course, they are a great talent magnet but a very bad talent keeper and that’s why they all leave… As always, only time will say.
