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.

The right words Translated from its French original text as “Les mots justes” 6.4.2013

This poem was inspired by a person very dear to my heart

The right words
——————-

Those which do not hurt
Those which do not offend
That leave perplexed
Turns around the index

You try
Unparalleled
And marvel
In the morn

In what narration
Do you plummet
Wonderful troubles
In total oblivion

You concoct
You complot
Cosset
And dither

Great is your laugh
When on the strings you pull
And slip on waxed floor
But what is your aim?

You look for the right words
That on your tongue stumbles
The chicanery of the boors
You smash against the lusters

So, you try again
In the morn
And marvel
At the sun.

Les mots justes
——————-

Ceux qui ne blessent
Ceux qui ne vexent
Qui laisse perplexe
Tournent autour de l’index

Tu essayes
Sans pareil
T’émerveilles
Au réveil

Dans quelle histoire
Tu te laisses choir
Merveilleux déboires
Sans t’en apercevoir

Tu concoctes
Tu complotes
Dorlotes
Et grelottes

Grand est ton rire
Quand sur la ficelle tu tires
Et glisses sur un parquet de cire
Mais quel est ton point de mire?

Tu cherches les mots justes
Qui sur ta langue trébuchent
L’embobinage des rustres
Tu te fracasses contre les lustres

Alors, tu réessayes
Au réveil
Et t’émerveilles
Du soleil.
