Paul Graham Essays

Paul Graham has wrote an article entitled "What You'll Wish You'd Known" which I found to be very interesting. It's a highschool graduation speech. His other essay, "Why Nerds are Unpopular" I also found engaging. I'm surprised at how well this guy can remember his childhood. The guy looks like he's 30 or 40. I'm 22, and reading through his essays, I was constantly nodding with "Yeah, it really was like that..." but there was no way I could have recalled these details on my own.

OT, but this, from the February Wired issue:

About 80 percent of Microsoft employees who have a portable music player have an iPod," said one source, a high-level manager who asked to remain anonymous. "It's pretty staggering." The source estimated 80 percent of Microsoft employees have a music player -- that translates to 16,000 iPod users among the 25,000 who work at or near Microsoft's corporate campus. "This irks the management team no end," said the source. So popular is the iPod, executives are increasingly sending out memos frowning on its use.
