Dov Moran, The inventor of the USB / Flash-drive.
“During an important business trip to New York in 1998, my computer crashed and I found myself without a presentation and with 200 people staring at me.
I promised myself that was the last time such a thing happens to me, and how great it would have been if I could take the presentation in my pocket. Many people said the idea of a Disk-on-Key wouldn’t work and thought I’m daydreaming, but I believed in it. A lot of people don’t follow their dreams and ideas because the surroundings discourage them. remember, that without persistence and a huge amount of resilience, your ideas will stay on the drawing board.”
