Why Nerds Are Unpopular
Submitted by Jason Quintana on Wed, 2006-11-22 18:16
This morning I read an excellent essay by a gentleman named Paul Graham, which really hit home. The essay can be found at http://www.paulgraham.com/nerds.html. It is called “Why Nerds are Unpopular”. For me, my junior high and high school years were by far the most miserable years of my life. The 8 years since I have graduated from high school have been absolute bliss in comparison. My return to college (something I never finished because I've always hated the school environment) has put me back in touch with hundreds of 19-22 year olds. The mentality that Graham describes in his essay is very easy to detect in many of them. Especially in the younger ones since they are so close to the secondary school experience. I have a lot more to say on this. I post this here because I suspect that many of you can relate to this as well.
In any case, for those who don't want to read the whole essay, here are the highlights (the essay itself is much better).
