DT Max at the New Yorker writes about Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter and Square:
Kidd wanted to hire him, and asked Dorsey if it would be O.K. for him to leave school. “I was worried about his mother,” Kidd remembers. Dorsey replied that the school would be O.K.—meaning that the computing class where he was a teaching assistant could get along without him. “It was the first of many miscommunications I had with Jack,” Kidd told me, laughing.
Dorsey left college and moved to New York.
