If you don't think knowing the future is a great advantage ...

I was watching Don Valentine from Sequoia Capital on "Target Big Markets" for an MBA crowd at Stanford. It's as if I had used his argument in writing Predicting the Future: The Steamrollers. Check it out at 34 minutes, 
"only one metric that matters is cash flow....I didn't tell you early on, I had a special advantage going into the VC business....I knew the future, if you don't think knowing the future is a great advantage, it's a phenomenal advantage...made it easy for us to invest in Atari, all microprocessors driven...Apple...aim the entrepreneurs at things that were silicon intensive..."
It is still an advantage.
