I quickly recalled that, at 20 years old, I experienced the Woodstock Music & Art Fair in August 1969 on Max Yasgur's farm in Bethel, New York, and now, 44 years later, I am going to ask Mr. Buffett questions at " the Woodstock of capitalism" in Omaha, Nebraska.
Going to the two Woodstocks in a half a century to me seems right, almost symmetrical and pretty cool.
Over the next week, I will be memorializing my pilgrimage to Omaha, Nebraska, to the Woodstock of capitalism, Berkshire Hathaway's annual shareholders meeting.
Today, I am going to chronicle how I went about doing my research on Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway as well as outline what I expect to accomplish on Saturday (and what Mr. Buffett likely expects of me).On Tuesday, I will cite the similarities between Warren Buffett and myself -- I was surprised at how many things we have in common, though it certainly isn't our net worths! On Wednesday, I will outline a number of things I have learned about Warren Buffett (and his cabal) and Berkshire Hathaway -- many of which will surprise and shock you, some may even make you laugh. On Thursday, I go on the road to Omaha, and I will be sending out regular dispatches of the experience.
