Quattrone 2.0

A judge says Silicon Valley investment titan Frank Quattrone is free to go back to work. Would you trust him?

B) Quattrone gets $120 million for being prosecuted? Man, I need to get into the sending-almost-incriminating-e-mail business.

C) I think the government is doing a marvelous job. Oh, wait, can you hold a minute? Frank's on the other line.

7) In recent years, Quattrone has turned to philanthropy, giving his time and money to Santa Clara University's Northern California Innocence Project and the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose. What do you think Quattrone will pour his energies into now that he's free of prosecution?

A) The Friends of Frank Quattrone Fund.

B) I think he's already found the perfect organizations. After all, innocence and technology are what Frank Quattrone is all about. (Bonus point for adding: "And cleanliness.")

C) His bank account. In Switzerland.
