Never trust a computer you can't throw out a window.
I just believe that the way that young people's minds develop is fascinating. If you are doing something for a grade or salary or a reward, it doesn't have as much meaning as creating something for yourself and your own life.
You can make something big when young that will carry you through life. Look at all the big startups like Microsoft, Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc. They were all started by very young people who stumbled on something of unseen value. You'll know it when you hit a home run.
Steve Jobs didn't really set the direction of my Apple I and Apple II designs but he did the more important part of turning them into a product that would change the world. I don't deny that.
Everything we did we were setting the tone for the world.
My goal wasn't to make a ton of money. It was to build good computers.
The best things that capture your imagination are ones you hadn't thought of before and that aren't talked about in the news all the time.
I wish to God that Apple and Google were partners in the future.
I'm surprised at the extent of the bigotry. But it really plays out when companies or schools take a side and prohibit the other platform at all. We Mac users should be good even when the other side is bad. We should do what we can to accept the other platforms.
Wherever smart people work, doors are unlocked.
Teachers started recognizing me and praising me for being smart in science and that made me want to be even smarter in science!
Your first projects aren't the greatest things in the world, and they may have no money value, they may go nowhere, but that is how you learn - you put so much effort into making something right if it is for yourself.
A lot of hacking is playing with other people, you know, getting them to do strange things.
Don't worry that you can't seem to come up with sure billion dollar winners at first. Just do projects for yourself for fun. You'll get better and better.
Even if you do something that others might consider wrong, you should at least be willing to talk about it and tell your parents what you're doing because you believe it's right.
