George Gilder was God. At least, that’s what we thought. Gilder described a new paradigm that promised to change the world and commerce in magnitudes akin to the printing press, air travel, the telephone and electricity.
We hung on every word of the Gilder Technology Report, which he created in 1996. It included impressive research and technical explanations that predicted much of what came to be. The report’s back page, however, was what we clamored for every month. It included a list of game-changing stocks: “telecosmic” companies that embraced what he called, the “ascendant” telecom technologies.
