Today's Interesting Links

"What You'll Wish You Had Known" -- an essay written by Paul Graham, a Lisp wizard who (among other things) created and sold the product that became Yahoo! Store, about useful things young people in highschool/college should know.

"You and Your Research" -- a transcription of a talk given by Richard Hamming, a famous mathematician/computer scientist about how to do great research.

Thank you very much for sharing the link of the transcription of "You and your research" talk by Hamming

I find it to be highly motivating for an average person like me.

I wanted to do something meaningful, by achieving something academically, but I often lose the courage. I may not be able to work on first-class work as Hamming mentioned. Nevertheless, I still want to make a difference.

Wow! thank you for sharing krub. "What You'll Wish You'd Known" is so good but I doubt that many high school kids will buy it if delivered in this format (I mean reading this whole article from beginning to end). I guess it is our job as parents to instill these wisdoms into the kids bits by bits. Thanks krub.
