Yahoo Co-Founder Jerry Yang Recalls Meeting Alibaba Founder Jack Ma | Fortune

Jerry is such a cool dude.

I will never forget my lucky chance to meet him, filling in for another Yahoo exec who couldn’t attend the meeting, and suddenly finding myself on a Jerry special project. It never went anywhere but I got to have regular meetings with Jerry. That is all that mattered.

Love his honesty about luck as well – so many successful people like to pretend luck is not a factor. Right…
