Interview With Ron May – The May Report

A few days ago, I had the opportunity to talk with Ron May about The May Report.

Like him or not (and many don’t), Ron May and The May Report have outlasted the many Chicago tech companies who have appeared in the report over the last decade.

In this 9 minute video interview, Ron and I talk about the origins of The May Report, how it became popular, and his regrets about not moving to the West Coast.

The story Ron tells at the beginning happened when he was five. One of his grandmothers told Ron that she loved him more than his other grandmother. Ron told the other grandmother about this.

He learned at a very young age that controversy brings attention. And he hasn’t let up since.
