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.

Hermit within range
————————-

Alone he perdures
Outcast by choice
Dissevered at birth
Isolated by his demise.

Secluded to think
So as not to perish
Apart, surrounded
Hermit within range.

Lone in blessedness
Remote as an artist
Nongregarious in assent
Unbinded, eclectic

Prodigy by choice

Hermite dans la portée
—————————-

Seul, il perdure
Paria par choix
DĂ©suni Ă  la naissance
Isolé à son décès.

Retiré pour réfléchir
Afin de ne pas périr
SĂ©parer, entourer
Hermite dans la portée.

Seul dans la béatitude
Distant comme artiste
Abstrus en adhesion
DĂ©lier, Ă©clectique

Prodige, par choix
