The Warren Buffett-does-Walter White Christmas Card will get two days of buzz

You can be sure Warren Buffett is not the only guy who used a Walter White (Breaking Bad) persona on his 2013 Christmas Card.

(He posted it on www.instragram recently.)

While others probably did the same, few will get the attention the Oracle of Omaha will reap.  Two things first off: Buffett represents the vast horde of older white guys (I'm in that group) who are chronically late and usually unable to raise their hipness score.

And second, doesn't he have a media handler who should be smarter than him, who would discourage stuff like this? 

Still, it's not the worst thing Buffett might have tried to generate some buzz.  Worse would have been Warren trying to coax some likes by adding Keyboard Cat to his  Xmas card.

GU professor will read from his book on notable entrepreneurs

A new book on entrepreneurs by Gonzaga University's Todd Finkle includes lessons drawn from Steve Jobs, Sergey Brin and Warren Buffett.

Finkle is GU's Pigott Professor in Entrepreneurship. He recently arranged a trip by GU business and Hogan Program students to meet with Buffeet in Omaha.

Finkle's new book is “Lessons Learned from Leading Entrepreneurs: Case Studies in Business and Entrepreneurship.”

He'll read from the book on Saturday Nov. 19 at 2 p.m. at Auntie's Bookstore, in downtown Spokane.
