    awesome information; thanks for sharing this interview.

    there’s def’ some gems to be had, esp. since he addresses the advent of blogs (at least relatively recent) and how they’re beginning to shape the business discussions for a number of investors. :mrgreen:

    As his first managing editor, in Boca Raton, it didn’t take me long to appreciate Herb Greenberg’s greatest strength: an insatiable mind. He was also an intense listener, eager learner and just enough over the edge to be a compelling writer. Recently, when scanning the evening cable news I saw the backside of an interviewer and knew immediately it was Herb. He was seated, leaning forward toward the interviewee, as if completely absorbed in what he was hearing and at the same time waiting to pounce. More like an animal stalking its prey. Besides being a fine journalist, Herb Greenberg is a thoroughly decent human being, which is as significant a contribution to journalism as his excellent investigative reporting.
