If you could invite three people to dinner who would you choose and why?

If you could invite three people to a dinner party (alive) who would you pick and why?

How many times have you been asked this question, in how many variations e.g. dead, alive, dead and alive, real or fictitious, etc., and how often does your answer change? That is rhetorical btw. Well I get asked this a lot and my answers change all the time so I’m gonna start documenting.

The other night during dinner with friends, these three sprung to mind first: Larry Ellison, Rupert Murdoch and Kanye West.

Everyone looked at me like I was insane but hey, these are the three people I’d give anything to see interact; imagine the conversation that can unfold.

Larry Ellison, one of the most crazy rogue in tech. Rupert Murdoch representing the fascinatingly crazy from media/entertainment and Kanye West who is just, well, unfiltered, foot in mouth crazy.

These three are so different, yet share the perfect amount of crazy to leave imprints in their respected fields, history and the world. Now whether we agree or disagree with them is a whole ‘nother story.

Who are your choices?
