Polishing A Rusty Knife

Posted 3 years, 9 months ago
 

Peter Klein was a student of mine at Columbia University in 1992.

He went to work for me at VNI, when we launched the business.

Later, he became a producer at 60- Minutes and then a professor at the University of British Columbia in Canada, and finally launched and ran the Global Reporting Center.

All of this by way of explaining how I came across his posting on Facebook.

Peter, like me, was of Hungarian origin, and when he was working for me at VNI, he also had a side line sharpening knives.

I thought this was a bit odd, but his family in Hungary had made a living as knife sharpeners.  

So it was with no little amount of interest that I saw a video from Japan he posted - a story of a knife sharpener.

That it became the #1 viewed video on Youtube only underscores his taste in video.. and hobbies.
