Rich Barton Talks About His Startup Companies
Bloomberg View columnist Barry Ritholtz interviews Rich Barton, the Microsoft engineer who developed Expedia while working for Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer in the 1990s. Barton then co-founded real estate app Zillow and jobs site Glassdoor, and joined the board of directors at Netflix, where he remains to this day. Barton tells Ritholtz that his companies bring transparency to industries that have traditionally lacked it. “Power to the people” says Barton, is not a political slogan, but “a technological one.” This interview aired on Bloomberg Radio.
