14-Year-Old Prodigy Programmer Dreams In Code- Very amusing :)


I found this video so amusing comparing this little 14 yrs old to all of us ordinary humans, I had to laugh at the immense diversity we have in this world…
It is truly enriching to embrace it with humor and appreciate the spectrum it gives us. It is indeed refreshing to meet this young boy’s mind through you tube, who is so fulfilled and happy in what he does.
That is what you call living to your full potential!
Let me know if it amused you too 🙂

Fourteen-year-old programmer and software developer Santiago Gonzalez might just be the next Steve Jobs. He already has 15 iOS apps to his name and dreams of designing for Apple. At age 12, Santiago became a full-time college student and is on track to earn his bachelor’s degree in computer science and electrical engineering by age 16. By 17, when most teenagers are excited to just have their driver’s license, Santiago will have his masters degree.

A self-professed computer nerd, Santiago is fluent in a dozen different programming languages and thousands of people have downloaded his apps for the Mac, iPhone and iPad.

Learn how Santiago’s parents overcame a rigid school system that left their son intellectually stifled and depressed and instead followed an unconventional pathway to nurture his incredible gifts. Santiago’s story is truly inspiring and his family’s experience provides a powerful model for parents of exceptionally gifted children.

Celebrating my new and organized Blog!!


Improvement, team work

Hi fellow readers,

I finally can shout out loud, my blog is nearly flawless, I say carefully nearly…Because there is no such thing as perfection, there will continually be room for improvement, but considering… it has come a long way.

There is an ” About ” and it has all been categorized, so it is much easier to pick the subject of your choosing.
I have to admit that with my computer skills I would have never been able to obtain those results ( or it might have taken much longer and many crises) and have eternal gratitude toward the patience my family excelled at during these ” trying ” times 🙂

P.S Does anyone have a clue of how to put a ” personal link ” on a Gravatar profile? ( Yes, it’s non ending! 🙂 )

Have a joyful day!
