Hopelessly Out of Touch
Carol Sands spoke at a workshop for my entrepreneurship class at Stanford. Somebody mentioned Quora and she said that she had never heard of it. Later on when a student gave her an elevator pitch, he used the word "hyperlocal", and she said that she had never heard that word before.
Weird presentation format. You don't know the names of the people you are presenting to, so I recognized a few faces but couldn't place them. Twenty-plus people in the room, almost no reactions/questions. And they asked us back, so clearly there was interest. The founder of the Forum asked the only questions, and she was so uninformed about the internet I thought she was some wealthy woman who'd never worked.
