John McAfee is back and he wants to get in on the technology start up game. The Silicon Valley icon is living in Portland, Oregon almost a year after fleeing Belize to avoid questioning on a murder rap. According to CNBC on Sept. 20, police tried to question him about the murder of a neighbor that he had nothing to do with.
'Belize is the murder capital of the world,' he said this week. 'It's a very violent, very dangerous place.'
McAfee is meeting with folks in Silicon valley and talking about launching a startup business. Apparently he is thinking about some sort of a localized social media platform. He is speaking at an industry event this weekend as well.
McAfee plans on self-funding the new business and partnering with other technology companies, but taking no outside investment. He figures that this new venture will run into the millions of dollars at this point.
When asked about other tech companies McAfee had much to say. When TechWeek readers voted him number one as their choice to be the next CEO of Microsoft, he said that he would start by firing most of the employees. He also said that Google was the only hot one right now as they control the data.
'...The owner of the world's information is the ruler of the world.'
