Warren Buffett fans from around the world are heading to Omaha for the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholder Meeting that gets underway tomorrow (Friday night) and gets into full swing on Saturday as Buffett and his partner Charlie Munger spend several hours answering shareholder questions. (Warren Buffett Watch will feature live minute-by-minute dispatches from that session, starting around 10:30a ET.)
This is not a dull, corporate affair. The weekend is essentially an enormous party, hosted by Buffett himself. He calls it 'Woodstock for Capitalists.' We're calling it Buffettstock '08.
We thought it would be interesting to see how CNBC covered Buffettstock '98 one decade ago. So intern Cindy Liu went digging through the dusty archives and found two Scott Cohn reports and an interview with Buffett from the 1998 annual meeting. Among other things, you'll learn how to keep your spouse and shareholders happy.
CNBC.com's video guy notes that Scott looks very young in these clips, while Buffett hasn't changed a bit. Scott just laughed when I mentioned it to him.
