FC: What’s the worst job you ever had?

FC: The scariest moment I’ve had running a company was the day .
Gordon: I’m still waiting for that day.
FC: Who gives you the best advice in your business?
Gordon: The customers. If you listen to them, it helps you understand trends and where things are going.

Gordon: I’d be filmmaker, a director. Blockbusters, extravaganzas! Either that or independent films — two extremes.
FC: Finish this sentence: George W. Bush is .
Gordon: President of the United States. He was helpful in unleashing the windpower boom in Texas.

FC: What’s your ideal day away from the office?
Gordon: Spending it with my family.
FC: How often do you actually do that?
Gordon: Every weekend. Sometimes I take a day off here and there to do it. Tomorrow I’m taking my three-and-a-half year old daughter to her swim class.
FC: Will there ever be a cartel of windpower-exporting states that we will have to invade?
Gordon: No, because we’re all anarchists and we wouldn’t have our own states. And not unless you want to fight states that fix the price of wind at zero.KP
