Quotes

"I probably still play too much chess on the internet. I haven't played tournament chess in a long time. It is some strange combination of art and science and sport, and it's somewhat addictive. It has some very good things and some unhealthy addictive things about it too, I think. Probably the thing I enjoy doing most is just having great dinner conversations with friends. I don't think that quite counts as a hobby, but it's an activity that I really enjoy."
When asked by the Silicon Valley Business Journal what he would be doing if he wasn't the CEO of a major tech company, Nelson replied , "I think I'd probably be an archaeologist. I actually got my master's degree from Stanford in anthropology. It's just always been something that's fascinating to me. Even as a kid, I used to go out and dig up the yard, hoping to find arrowheads. I never did, but that was the dream."
