One day the partners arrived at work to find all their operating funds had disappeared, and today Bogle and Gates is no more since they dissolved the firm without any operating funds to continue on. (Maybe crooks hire crooks, after all, considering who that Gates was the grandfather to?)

Recently, the local news wondered if the Seattle area would have more tech startups with ensuing local Microsoft layoffs, but with their established pattern, it is far more likely that the market of patent trolls will grow.
It used to be that the hotshots would leave a well-established startup to begin their own startup, but they aren't hiring the real talent anymore, just offshoring jobs and importing foreign visa scab workers. They have destroyed the pattern of amortization at the cognitive level.
