Part of the problem with Holmes and Theranos was that she was using a
business model more suited to software than medical technology.   And (to
be blunt) a lot of people very much WANTED her to succeed---she was young,
female, and good-looking.

Gwynne; I think part of the reason for the huge backlash was that she was working
in the medical field. If her fake invention had been doing something else it wouldn't
be so bad, but she affected lives, very directly.
