Marc Andreessen on hiring the best

Really great (and long!) piece on what it takes to build a great team. A great candidate needs three things: Drive, Curiosity, Ethics. They need to be Churchillian: 

“We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.”

Marc’s rhetoric isn’t quite as inspirational, but nonetheless worth a look!
