People can be really smart or have skills that are directly applicable, but if they don’t really believe in it, then they are not going to really work hard.
I got my first computer in the 6th grade or so. As soon as I got it, I was interested in finding out how it worked and how the programs worked and then figuring out how to write programs at just deeper and deeper levels within the system.
People have really gotten comfortable not only sharing more information and different kinds, but more openly and with more people–and that social norm is just something that has evolved over time.
I mean, the real story is actually probably pretty boring, right? I mean, we just sat at our computers for six years and coded.
